Here’s a small selection of the horror and genre news that caught our eye during the last week …
Following his successful kickstarters for last year’s releases of Dracula and Dante’s Inferno, artist Lyndon White has this time turned to the work of Lovecraft for his inspiration. For each of the scenes in the classic tale, The Call of Cthulu, he has designed a tile with a beautifully realised image. These are bound together in a folding concertina format, making for a beautiful and haunting new way to experience the classic story. With signed and numbered copies of the book available on the kickstarter for only £8, it looks like this could be something for Lovecraft fans to get their hands on. You can reserve your copy, and pledge for a variety of other perks here.

The Cured offers the curve ball of a cure for the zombie affliction. But once cured, how do former zombies deal with their past actions? How can life return to normal? Take a look at the brand new trailer, below.
