The Images that Came from Sarnath...

For Immediate Release:

Production has begun on Red Hatchet Films latest Lovecraft film, Bokrug, a stop-motion adaptation of The Doom that Came to Sarnath (see our first mention of the project here)! The film tells the story of the decadent city of Sarnath, whose greatness is built on the destruction of an older, primitive race of beings who live in the stone city of Ib, where they worshiped an ancient, reptilian god called "Bokrug". On the night of the 1000th anniversary of Ib's destruction, strange forces signal that the beings of Ib are about to be avenged...

Director/animator Michael Granberry (From Beyond) passed along the following test shots of some of the puppets and sets from the film, which he hopes to have completed by the spring of 2010. Music on the film will be handled by Lovecraftian composer and Dead House Music founder Mars...
