The first episode of Season 1 of Lovecraft Territory, the new horror series produced by Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams, is now available on HBO from last Friday, August 17. Misha Green has adapted Matt Ruff's novel of the same name and moved it to the small screen by actors Jonathan Majors, Courtney B. Vance, and Jurnee Smollett, the protagonists of this story.
Fiction takes the viewer into the dark world of writer H.P. Lovecraft, set in the segregated Southern America of the 1950s. Throughout the title, the protagonists will face persistent racism in each of the villages that appear on their journey. But, parallel to this threat, creatures called Shoggoth are among the shadows.

If you've seen the trailer, you can do it over these lines, you can get a light idea of what these monsters are like from the world of The Stranger Things backward. But, here the comparison of these macabre creatures with American racism is evident in every minute of the first episode. But what are these creatures and what do they do?
During the first episode Atticus, Leti, and George embark on an uncertain journey to find Montrose. Not knowing how they end up in a strange section of the forest that they think is Ardham, a place that only appears vaguely on the map. Once there Atticus begins to introduce letti to the story of the shoggoths, animals that go out in the dark to hunt everyone who is on the loose.

But these monsters are not just attacking creatures. His bite acts like a zombie and turns you instantly into a replica. Its multiple eyes and several rows of sharp fangs make this task much easier than any walker in The Walking Dead you can face. But, they have a weak spot. Just as vampires are fragile in the light.
