Howard Lovecraft & the Frozen Kingdom



Howard, dear, are you scared?

There's no need to be frightened,

the storm can't hurt you.

It... It's not that, Mother.

It's just... Tonight's the

night we visit Father.

In the bad place.

Oh, Howard.

He's really looking forward to seeing you.

You're all he has left.

Just hold my hand, Howard.

Everything will be fine.

I don't like this place, Mother.

I know, darling. I don't either.

But you know why we've come.

I'm certain your father

will want to see you on his birthday.

Good evening, Dr West.

I received your message.

I know there's been no official change,

but I thought my husband could see his son

on his birthday.

Mrs Lovecraft,

I wish I could tell you that seeing his son

would be therapeutic for your husband,

but Winfield's mind

is like a shattered looking-glass.

That's a good one.

"Shattered... Looking... Glass."

But in all honesty,

I'm more concerned about the harm

it could do to the boy

to see his father in this state.

But haven't the treatments

shown any progress?

Oh, don't expect him to tango.

"Progress" is such an inexact term,

Mrs Lovecraft.

Most assuredly we have done everything

within medical boundaries to assist,

even a few things outside of

those boundaries to be honest.

I feel for you, and the child,

but Winfield is still showing

extreme nervous exhaustion

and nothing is calming him down.

I cannot advise visitation.

I just... I was hoping on his birthday

he could actually see his son.

Oh, why listen to me?

I'm merely a highly-trained professional

with expert opinions

on the secrets of life and death.

I don't know. Whatever am I to do?

Come along, Mrs Lovecraft.

Come along.

A little fatherly fear never hurt anyone.

I hear a lot of writers

are made that way, in fact.

He's coming.

He's coming.

King Abdul...

He always took care of everything.

Now I'm just lost.

He's coming.

He's coming.


He's coming, he's coming, he's coming,

he's coming, he's coming.

Father, it's me.

It's Howard. Who's coming?

Abdul Alhazred.

King Abdul. He is coming.

Father, please speak to me.

He's coming, he's...

- Howard?

- Father.

Howard, son.


Listen to me!

I made a mistake.

No. I discovered it.

A mistake...

A glorious mistake.

Father, I miss you. I miss you so much.

Listen to me, son.

Listen! But not to King Abdul.

And not to the words.

Don't ever listen to the words! Or symbols!

The symbols will speak to you,

but do not listen.

Listen to me.

I saw it.

I heard it.

Should never have been written. Ever.

My mistake.

I never should have.

Howard. The words. The symbols.

Do not look.

Do not listen.

Do not read.

- Father.

- Swear it!

King Abdul, the Necronomicon,

the words, the symbols,

they will lead to...

To the sleeper of R'lyeh.

The Great Old One!

"That is not dead which can eternal lie,

and with strange aeons even death may die."

- Please.

- The Necronomicon, destroy it, Howard!

- Destroy it for my sake, for yours!

- Let go!

What do you think you're doing?

He must remain sleeping!

The Necronomicon must be destroyed, son!

- Help!

- Orderly.

The symbols must be destroyed,

before they destroy us all!


Swear you'll destroy it!

Cthulhu cannot awake!

Restrain him!

I see the symbols.

And it's madness.

It's OK, Howard. Mummy's here.


Why did you take him there

in the first place?

- I'm sorry. I shouldn't have...

- No, Mary, you're right.

I mean, I have to raise Howard alone.

Oh, shh now. It's all right.

I'll help you, Sarah.

We all will.

I just worry.

He's always been an odd child.

That imagination of his,
