Inspiration: After being repeatedly cursed by frustrated call center operators who simply won't take a "no" as an answer, I imagined to adapt The Call Of Cthulhu, the novel where the Great Ancient calls and curses the poor souls on Earth, into this short film. I absolutely intend no mockery against all the good people working in phone companies! We just had fun making surreal and literary parallelisms between two far away worlds. What if Cthulhu calls in the world of today? Behold the business adventure of the infamous sea beast Cthulhu, who starts his journey from a humble home-office to forge a call center empire. When Cthulhu calls, there is no option. Either you buy or you die. This film is freely inspired by "The Call Of Cthulhu" and quotes other Lovecraftian novels. We consulted a Lovecraft expert to make sure we made correct parallelisms.
