SpookySpookyScaryScary is the episodic tale of Chuck and Dexter—best friends, roommates and huge fans of horror author HP Lovecraft.* But when the Great God Cthulhu sends Chuck a dream, the duo form the world's worst cult ever. Armed only with the power of the internet, cheap beer, small daggers, and poor social skills they vow to spread the bad word that Cthulhu is real. A brutally sharp tale of obsession, fantasy and the comic horror of reality.

*No actual knowledge of the works of HP Lovecraft is necessary to enjoy the film!
