Doug Jones & Photographer Joshua Hoffine team for FX-heavy, Lovecraftian “INNSMOUTH” ProjectBooks/Art/Culture,News Ken W. Hanley
Despite having a film in theaters with CRIMSON PEAK and three successful television series air over the summer, I think fright fans can agree that there is simply not enough of Doug Jones in our lives. An extraordinary actor with or without a mountain of make-up, Jones is not only a talented performer but a genuine fan of horror in his own right, especially when it comes to classic terror tales and the Gothic. So therefore, it’s great and, admittedly, not too surprising to see Jones as the sole human element in the latest project from acclaimed horror photographer Joshua Hoffine, entitled INNSMOUTH!
Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH, Hoffine’s vision depicts Jones as a man on the run from a mob of bloodthirsty fish-people called The Deep Ones. INNSMOUTH also features amazing creature FX from acclaimed make-up artist and FACE/OFF champion J. Anthony Kosar, who brings the Lovecraftian monsters to stunning life. And the photo spread also features vintage photos from actual wet plates, achieved using an 1800s camera and chemical process aided by photographer Steve Wilson.
