| Pretty cool!
This is a short story that was posted on IMDb in a new service that allows people in the US to view some free films and TV shows. Let's hope this becomes popular and spreads to other markets.

LOVECRAFT'S PILLOW is a story that was reportedly inspired from a suggestion by Steven King. A poor shmoe has been trying for years to get published to no avail. His wife is fed up and tells him to sell his computer and stop with his dream (nice lady, huh?). So, when he goes to the pawn shop, he sees a pillow in the window that supposedly belonged to famed horror writer H.P. Lovecraft. According to Wikipedia, Lovecraft was famous for gaining inspiration from his bizarre dreams. When he buys the pillow instead of selling the laptop, strange and unexpected things occur in this very clever short film.
