'Now See This' Newsletter: All You Need Is 'Lovecraft'

The Hollywood Reporter Logo By THR Staff of The Hollywood Reporter | Slide 2 of 8: Premiering Sunday, HBO's Lovecraft Country is a fast-moving blend of pulpy genre elements — creator Misha Green doesn't stint on the haunted-house frights or monster movie gore — and provocative takes on systemic American racism in 1955 and today. It's smart and spooky and gross, and star Jurnee Smollett is spectacular. As I wrote, "This is a show that hooks you fast — and one toward which it's nearly impossible to be ambivalent." Plus, listen to Green discuss Lovecraft Country on this week's TV's Top 5 podcast.
