Nathaniel Wingate Peaslee & the Portland Horror Film Festival 2018


In Lovecraft’s tale, Robert Blake is a young author and painter from MilwaukeeWisconsin. He comes to Providence, Rhode Island and moves into an apartment on College Street. While there, he completes five short stories: “The Burrower Beneath”, “The Feaster from the Stars”, “In the Vale of Pnath”, “Shaggai”, and “The Stairs in the Crypt”. He becomes obsessed with a deserted church on Federal Hill that he can see from his window. He later learns of a cult that was once active there, the Church of Starry Wisdom. His investigation of this cult inevitably leads to his death.


We also talk about the radness of the PHFF.
