We've been excited about HP Lovecraft-inspired Dirt Dauber since it started making the film festival circuit last year. Now it's out on DVD.

Here's the synopsis:

In this Lovecraftian fairy tale, a man who awakens naked and confused in the woods is helped by a strange local who speaks of curious mountain folklore, and a murderous religious cult that worships an insect-like fertility god that dwells deep inside the mountain. The two men go underground in search of the truth, and soon find themselves in a stygian black temple of horror.


You can now own it for $12 on DVD - that might sound a little pricey for a 30-minute film, but the good news is that this is an indie and all the cash goes back to the filmmakers.

You can order the short film via the Dirt Dauber website
