Strega: Unbound – Dieselpunk, Cthulhu Mythos, Pulp!

From the crew who brought you Dirigible Days comes a stand-alone short film, Strega: Unbound, and it’s got Cthulhu Mythos goodness galore!

 

The title character, Salazar Strega, is a villain originally from the award-winning, self-produced web series Dirigible Days (directed by Lobstein), and he now menaces this separate, stand-alone short film with a supernatural setting and story heavily influenced by the writings of H.P. Lovecraft.
It’s the 1940’s during WWII and Professor Eidelberg is being forced by a secret Nazi cult to steal an ancient manuscript. But dealing with forbidden knowledge comes at a price.  This short, dieselpunk thriller features original music from Bob Eisenstein of the steampunk band Victor Sierra and is directed by Patrick Murray.
“Strega is now free to roam in a world of gods, magic and monsters,” said Lobstein, who plays Strega on screen. “It’s interesting to see him ‘unbound’ by rules and limitations set by the creator of the Dirigible Days world setting.”
