Carter Wilcox (David Phillip Carollo) is a struggling artist who’s been saving his virginity for someone special. When he meets the enchanting escort Riley Whatley (Melissa O’Brien), he believes he’s found the one. Unfortunately, she’s also “someone special” to an ancient cult that believes she is the chosen bride of its alien god, Cthulhu. Forced to mate with the tentacled deity, Riley becomes a vessel for the spawn that will destroy mankind. Now, Carter and his noise musician roommate, Erica Zann (Nicolette le Faye), must battle the sinister cult and unimaginable creatures to save Riley… and the rest of humanity.

If you took a blender and you tossed in From Beyond, Frank Henenlotter, and a splash of the splatter from Evil Dead, you’d probably end up with just what we have here, Call Girl of Cthulhu. A movie that does a lot of really cool things besides just give us another awesome H.P. Lovecraft inspired story. The mix of whores, cults, and virgins ends up being a very old school style affair and I mean that in a good way. The movie packs just as much atmosphere as it does breast, which makes for one heck of an awesome combination when you sit down to watch something. We follow our resident virgin, Carter, as he enlists the help of a call girl, but not for reasons you’d think. Meanwhile, there is a cult running around purging through whores in a quest to find just the right one to impregnate and give Cthulhu his own child. As luck would have it, these guys pick the same call girl that Carter is so fond of and thus we have our story in a nutshell, with some other cool things tossed in for good measure. The story may start out a bit sluggish, but it picks up and becomes a blast before too long.

Of course, the thing that really stands out here in this movie is the effects. We get some pretty awesome gore more times than not and it really helps, especially in the second half of the film. Not saying it isn’t good before, but it feels as if it goes into overdrive in the later part. The story isn’t typical either, which adds for a hint of unpredictable storytelling within the plot, so we never know for sure how things are going to end up when the credits roll. To be blunt with you, Call Girl of Cthulhu is a lot of fun and creative. Of course, seeing as how it was made by the same person who gave us WNUF Halloween Special, I’m not at all shocked by the creative side of things here. Camp Motion Pictures’ first dive into Blu-ray is a keeper in my book. It looks good, it is a good movie, and we have all the nudity and gore us horror fans could want all wrapped up in a neat little package. This is a must-see for any Lovecraft fans and just fans of splatter movies in general.
