“The fishiest legacy”

Films: The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu (2009)

Alias: Various, notably Starspawn, the Deep Ones, and Cthulhu

Type: Mystical

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: Ranges from that of average humans to being indescribable.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: H.P. Lovecraft is notorious for writing about unbeatable terrors that lurk beyond the stars to drive people mad. But sometimes, it takes a Lovecraft to beat out his nightmares (but sadly not his bigotry). Thus, the last Lovecraft is about to go on an adventure of eldritch proportions!

History: The last descendant of the mad author is a lowly Jeff Phillips, who has been tasked with protecting a small idol that, if restored under the stars aligned, will resurrect the city of R'lyeh and its God Cthulhu. From there, Jeff and some old and new friends are pursued by the fish-like Deep Ones, crazed Cthulhu worshippers, and Starspawn, Cthulhu's most devoted minion.

Notable Kills: In an inexplicably animated sequence, Cthulhu is shown in his prime ripping a triceratops' head off and using it to impale a Shoggoth.

Final Fate: Starspawn manages to reassemble the relic...but his insanity powers fail to affect Jeff due to Lovecraft's heritage. He uses dynamite to destroy the relic just as Cthulhu rises again, saving the day. Later, he and his friends venture off to find more eldritch relics, starting with the Mountains of Madness.

Powers/Abilities: The most devoted of Cthulhu's followers can use arcane weaponry, as well as incite insanity into weak-willed minds.

Weakness: Anything conventional, though the more powerful ones can only be taken out by heavy artillery and arcane banishment.

Scariness Factor: 4-Cthulhu's a CGI mess, and a crappy drawing at another point, but his minions are the stuff of nightmares! The Deep Ones are all sorts of varied undersea horror, and Starspawn is a rather unsettling blood-red squid man with a superiority complex. Any unfortunate soul not related to Lovecraft wouldn't stand a chance.

Trivia: -Many of the minor effects in the film were rather oddly achieved. Guts came in the form of pig insides, and some gasoline was actually sugar water.

-If you can believe it, there is an actual registered religion dedicated to Cthulhu. It is known as the Cthulhu's Witnesses, though they are mainly stationed in the UK.

Three guys and an eldritch abomination. We're doomed.

Seems Gordon Ramsey finally snapped.
Now, it's four guys! Still, outclassed.

Come on, guys! He's only trying to clean the glass!
Somebody just smash that relic already.
