Next month you can take back your legacy when supernatural Horror Television show Lovecraft Country arrives. Today you can get a look at the latest Trailer and finally the monsters come out to play…The Cthulhu!
The Jordan Peele produced chiller sees an African American family in 1950’s USA. An ex Korean veteran soldier friend and uncle search for his missing father. As they investigate the family history they find some unexpected information.
As we learned in the last trailer, the show will have a big slice of social realism. Racism is rife and relate to recent tragic events and a white supremacist cult with links to Lovecraftan roots! You can see those racists in action in the trailer. We can’t wait to see this!
