Roddy Piper Meets Lovecraft in Portal to Hell


POH_LogoDirector Vivieno Caldinelli, writer Matt Watts and star Roddy Piper have teamed up with executive producer Todd Brown, executive producer Andrew Rosen, and FX guru Steve Kostanski to bring horror fans Portal to Hell a crowdfunded horror-comedy effort that will begin as a short film before heading into feature territory.

Piper stars as Jack, a simple man with simple needs. Mostly he just needs to be left alone to read his book. It’s a good book and he likes it…or, at least, he would if the tenants of the building he manages weren’t so damn needy. And it’s not just blown fuses and clogged toilets…

No, when the building power goes out, the culprit is a pair of Cthulhu-worshiping tenants opening a portal to the demon city of R’lyeh in the basement.

Does this count as building maintenance? Is battling the supernatural part of Jack’s job description? Maybe not, but if Jack can’t close the portal the entire building and – let’s face it – the whole world is screwed.
