HOWARD LOVECRAFT AND THE UNDERSEA KINGDOM REVIEWED
“Howard Lovecraft and the Undersea Kingdom” is the sequel that I’m not sure any kid asked to see. While the voice acting is top-notch and the material remains true to Lovecraft, it doesn’t hold any real connection to what has come before. Howard’s dad doesn’t seem right and Armitage feels like the film equivalent of a NPC. While I like seeing this material made accessible to kids, the story is pretty forgettable. Now, when is someone going to greenlight my idea for Red Seuss Diaries?
If your kids dig this one, then pick up the original Howard Lovecraft graphic novels for them.

The Plot Thus Far
Young Howard Lovecraft may have defeated the evil King Abdul Alhazred in the Frozen Kingdom, but all is not safe, not yet. There are much darker forces at work and, this time, Howard must protect his father's journals without the assistance of his most trusted ally, Spot. Instead, Howard must recruit his own father and seek the aid of the studious Dr. Henry Armitage to use the power of the journals to rescue his best friend and family, and vanquish the mysterious forces once and for all!
Based on the graphic novel series by Bruce Brown and Dwight L. MacPherson, Howard Lovecraft And The Undersea Kingdom comes to life with a phenomenal voice cast; including Academy Award®-winner* Christopher Plummer (Up), Mark Hamill (the Star Wars franchise), Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator), Ron Perlman (Hellboy) and Doug Bradley (Hellraiser)!
