Free Lovecraft Horror Movies Begin Tonight at Haverhill Library

Three weeks of free movies inspired by the father of modern horror, H.P. Lovecraft, kick off tonight at Haverhill Public Library.

SStuart Gordon’s “Dagon,” a 2001 adaptation of “The Weird Shadow Over Innsmouth,” written by Lovecraft in 1931, is being shown at 6 p.m. A boating accident runs a young man and woman ashore in a decrepit Spanish fishing town, which they discover is in the grips of an ancient sea god and its monstrous half human offspring. The film is rated R and contains some violence and nudity.

The Lovecraft series continues Tuesdays and Thursdays from Oct. 13 to Oct. 29, 6 p.m., at the library, 99 Main St. For a list of titles please visit under Calendar of Events or call (978) 373-1586.
