| Film Synopsis |

Based on Matt Ruff's novel of the same name, Lovecraft Country follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he meets up with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett) and his uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father (Michael Kenneth Williams).

| Video |

'LOVECRAFT COUNTRY' is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of HBO and Warner Brothers Home Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. Images are stable and sharp with plenty of discernible texture. There are many dark and shadowy aspects to the look of this series, and they come through very nicely thanks to the dark and inky black levels.

The 5.1 channel soundtrack keeps pace with the video and is simply excellent. The surround sound channels do their job in immersing the viewer throughout every episode. The dialogue is clean and crisp.

This Blu-ray features excellent high-definition video, terrific lossless surround sound and decent extras.  Season 1 was amazing and left me wanting more.  Cannot wait for Season 2.  Highly Recommended.
