An artist falls in love with a woman who ends up being the chosen bride of Cthulhu.[3] The film is very loosely based on the writings of H. P. Lovecraft.[4]

Call Girl of Cthulhu makes reference to LaMartina's WNUF Halloween Special via the Shining Trapeze Strip Club, which is featured in a commercial shown during the film.


Ineffectual and sexually inexperienced artist Carter (David Phillip Carollo) wants desperately to lose his virginity, but only to the right person. He thinks he has found the right person in Riley (Melissa O'Brien), a call girl with a strange birthmark on her right buttock.

Carter's dreams of romance are soon ruined, as several Cthulhu-worshiping cultists of the Church of Starry Wisdom see this birthmark as a sign that Riley is destined to become the bride of Cthulhu and bear his child.

It is up to Carter, aided by Edna Curwen (Helenmary Ball) and Squid (Sabrina Taylor-Smith), to find a way (with the aid of a spell from the Necronomicon) to stop the cult from fulfilling their plan to mate Riley to the Great Old One.


The film contains numerous in-jokes referencing the names of Lovecraft stories and characters, including Deep Ones condoms and Cool Air aerosol.

Daily Dead gave Call Girl of Cthulhu a score of 3.5 (out of 5), stating that while the film was "not for everyone", it would appeal to "those of you Lovecraft (and horror) fans out there looking for something just a little bit outside the norm".[5] Fangoria rated the film "three out of four skulls" and praised its acting.[6]
