When he meets the enchanting escort Riley Whatley (Melissa O’Brien), he believes he’s found the one. Unfortunately, she’s also `someone special` to an ancient cult that believes she is the chosen bride of their alien god, Cthulhu. Forced to mate with their tentacled deity, Riley becomes a vessel for the spawn that will destroy mankind. Now, Carter and his noise musician roommate, Erica Zann (Nicolette le Faye), must battle the sinister cult and unimaginable creatures to save Riley… and the rest of humanity. Will they save the world or surrender to the slimy grip of the Great Old Ones?

My thoughts… Call Girl of Cthulhu is an old-fashioned low-budget Lovecraft-ian gore-fest that calls to mind the great low-budget Lovecraft-ian gore-fests of Stuart Gordon and Brian Yuzna like Re-Animator (1985) and From Beyond (1986)! Call Girl of Cthulhu is sexy, gory and fun! In addition, it’s the best twist on the title of H.P. Lovecraft’s iconic 1928 story since Seamus Cooper’s humorous novel The Mall of Cthulhu (2008). However, if per chance you are unfamiliar with the Great Old One known as Cthulhu, well, this video (here) will explain everything!
