Greetings, people of, this is Isola Illyon, the Italian fantasy news website!
Every day we provide our supply readers with daily news about movies and books, with reviews of Role-Playing Games and Videogames and insights about on fantasy characters and stories.
One of our editors’ most beloved subjects are the works of Howard Phillips Lovecraft, a cornerstone of gothic and sci-fi literature from the beginning of the XX century. Among his most known works, we can remember “Dagon”, “The Colour Out of Space”, “The Call of Cthulhu”, “The Dunwich Horror”, “The Case of Charles Dexter Ward”, “At the Mountains of Madness”, “The Shadow over Innsmouth”.

There has been a plenty of movies and videogames dedicated to or inspired by Lovecraft’s novels, but here we are, calling you to help us with a petition addressed to Netflix, in order to produce a TV series based on Lovecraft’s characters and setting. Our purpose is to create a meaningful, deep series, somehow similar to other productions such as “Penny Dreadful” but at the same time with a marked horror, grotesque, and somewhat splatter element. It should feature a captivating sub-plot and a protagonist fighting an endless conflict with the world that only he and few others know - or believe they know).

We already have a screenplay in mind, with characters and ideas galore. However, what matters now is to make our plea to Netflix. If all of you, worshippers of Cthulhu, Azatoth, Nyarlathotep or any other Lovecraftian creature, will sign this petition, we might reach Netflix and convince them to shift their attention to this project. And we are pretty sure that would be a guaranteed success!

The oldest and strongest emotion of  mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. H.P. Lovecraft.

Sign the petition, Cthulhu is coming!
