Storyline

Lovecraft Country follows Atticus Freeman as he joins up with his friend Letitia and his Uncle George to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father. This begins a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying monsters that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback.

Fun fact: This isn't based on H. P. Lovecraft writings
7 September 2020 | by KOOLAIDBROSee all my reviews

I can't believe I felt the need to write another review because I see users leaving reviews NOT KNOWING THIS IS BASED OFF A NOVEL from 2016 by author Matt Ruff. I shouldn't have to do this, but here we are. Please do your research on the novel before watching this show. If you can read this or leave a review? You obviously could look this up much easier than writing an angry review because this is not based off something that it's not supposed to be. Know this going in or you're gonna be very confused and maybe even feel the need to come on here and voice your displeasure. Just want to throw that out. Now the acting, the camera work, the effects are all top notch. The story is pretty good so far (currently on episode 4). Also it is not a H. P. Lovecraft story. Mmkay?
