Special tour will explore Lovecraft’s favorite Providence haunts



PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Providence native and cult horror writer H.P. Lovecraft will be the subject of a special walking tour and film series during the annual FLICKERS: Rhode Island International Horror Film Festival (RIHFF), October 20-23rd. The tour will take place on Sunday, October 23rd at 3:00 p.m..


lovecraftThe life and work of Providence's best-known fantasy and horror author, Howard Phillips Lovecraft, will provide the backdrop for the tour, which will be lead by the Rhode Island Historical Society.  Lovecraft's "Providence stories" (written between 1924 and 1935) provide the basis for this walk.  Lovecraft wrote eloquently, and in great detail, about such landmarks as Prospect Terrace, the First Baptist Church, and Benefit Street houses.  Participants will see the site of his former home, as well as locales mentioned in The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, The Haunter of the Dark, The Shunned House, and The Call of Cthulhu.


Following the tour, which begins at 12:00 p.m. (noon) and lasts for approximately 90 minutes, participants will be treated to ticket to see a film screening at the Bell Street Chapel Theatre anytime during the Festival.


“It is amazing how Lovecraft’s horror writing still resonates with audiences today,” commented Demetria J. Carr, Managing Director of the FLICKERS: Rhode Island International Film Festival. “Providence provided the inspiration for his most chilling and terrifying stories. This walking tour is a wonderful opportunity for his fans to connect with the man behind the writer.”


Please feel free to call the RIIFF office to make reservations or to have any questions answered: 401.861.4445.
