    “Call Girl of Cthulhu” Alamo Drafthouse August 14 ~Yonkers~

    CALL GIRL OF CTHULHU, from rising indie filmmaker Chris LaMartina, is a raunchy, rollicking salute to the eldritch mythos in which a virginal artist (David Phillip Carollo) believes he’s found love with a beautiful escort (Melissa O’Brien)—little knowing that she has been prophesied as the bride of the ancient god Cthulhu. Can he help her escape the ruthless cult pursuing her, and prevent the birth of hell on Earth? We’re not telling, but there are lots of Lovecraft in-jokes, double entendres and surprises along the way.

    Presented by Fangoria, with filmmakers in person for post-screening Q&A with Fangoria’s managing editor Michael Gingold.


    Location: Alamo Drafthouse, 2548 Central Park Avenue, Yonkers
