Scary as Cthulhu may be, even Lovecraft’s most fearful creations cannot live up to the horror of his abhorrent personal beliefs.
Scary as Cthulhu may be, even Lovecraft’s most fearful creations cannot live up to the horror of his abhorrent personal beliefs. His heinous support of white supremacy and awful, racist pieces that he wrote during his lifetime, are by far the scariest work he’d ever made.Prolific horror fiction writer H.P. Lovecraft created a nightmarish beast to haunt our dreams when he wrote his short story “The Call of Cthulhu” in 1928. This cosmic creature is described as a combination of an octopus, a dragon and a human being – and just glancing at the monster will drive the viewer insane (the problem being that it’s hard not to look at a gigantic, terrifying, tentacle-mouthed Hell-beast.)Cthulhu is also indestructible: even when a boat rammed into his body, he quickly reformed himself within a matter of moments. Once the stars align, his worshippers can bring Cthulhu out from the depths of the sea and bring about a new age of the Old Gods. Next, Cthulhu will inherit the Earth from them and rule it once again. I, for one, welcome our new sea overlord.
