I am not ashamed to admit it: I enjoyed the Hell out of Tremors. So this Kickstarter project about trying to make a SF/horror movie called Endangered hit all the right notes for me:
Lovecraft themes, no buckets of blood, independently made by enthusiastic people on a shoestring – what’s not to love?
Via The Watcher of Yaathagggu.
It’s easily my favorite quasi-Steampunk Lovecraftian webcomic, and I’ve always thought that once a week was not enough. Now all we have to do is convince author Robyn Seale to get a PayPal button and an Amazon Associates store and maybe she’ll make enough off of the site to encourage her to go to three times a week…
I’m a little surprised at myself that I haven’t mentioned this webcomic before: after all, The Watcher of Yathagggu is Cthulhu Mythos/steampunk* (and quite unsettling), and everybody knows how I feel about those two different genres. This one’s also sorta-kinda post-apocalypse, in that special Mythos way. All in all, it very favorably compares with Lovecraft is Missing, which is finally updating again, by the way.
Anyway, the current chapter to TWoY starts here, but there’s a decent-sized, tasty backlog to it. Go check it out.
*Although it may be more electro-punk by now.
