LOVECRAFT COUNTRY “This world is haunting us” – August 2020 on HBO

HBO premieres LOVECRAFT COUNTRY this August from showrunner Misha Green and executive producers Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams. The 10 episode series is based on Matt Ruff’s novel of the same name. HBO promotes the series with a new trailer teasing the monstrous things to expect, both supernatural and human in nature. Check it out below!

LOVECRAFT COUNTRY follows Atticus Black as he joins his friend Letitia and his Uncle George to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father. What follows is a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying monsters that could be ripped from an H.P. Lovecraft paperback.
