Official synopsis:

Carter Wilcox (David Phillip Carollo) is a struggling artist who’s been saving his virginity for someone special. When he meets the enchanting escort Riley Whatley (Melissa O’Brien), he believes he’s found the one. Unfortunately, she’s also “someone special” to an ancient cult that believes she is the chosen bride of their alien god, Cthulhu.

Forced to mate with their tentacled deity, Riley becomes a vessel for the spawn that will destroy mankind.

Now, Carter and his noise musician roommate, Erica Zann (Nicolette Le Faye), must battle the sinister cult and unimaginable creatures to save Riley… and the rest of humanity. Will they save the world or surrender to the slimy grip of the Great Old Ones?

Reviews:

” … bespeaks a passion for creating fun, frightful fare, financial restrictions be damned. These days, B-movies in which all the effort seems to have gone into coming up with a goofy/hybrid title are almost a cottage industry; Call Girl of Cthulhu is one happy occasion where it feels like the movie came first.” Michael Gingold, Fangoria

With sanity-shattering special effects and a healthy dose of T&A (tentacles and ass), Call Girl of Cthulhu is “a perfect midnight movie” Cinemaslasher.com

“The film plays out in a frenetic dance of exploding heads, genital-mutating STDs, tentacles, zombie hookers, laughs, and love. Needless to say, I enjoyed every cock-severing, hooker mutating, face-melting moment of it.” Anthony J. Rapino, Addicted to Horror Movies

Call Girl of Cthulhu features numerous homages to Lovecraftian characters and the Cthulhu mythos (as expected), as well as tons of impressive gooey gore moments that rival many practical effects gags you see in movies with 10 times the budget that LaMartina has at his disposal here.” Heather Wixson, Daily Dead

” …. some great practical effects that for the most part work (yes, there are a few occasions where the effects look a bit laughable). The comedy elements are also nicely placed and never step on the toes of the horror elements. We also get lots of Lovecraftian-style horrors to linger at as well. Grotesque monsters, tentacled-things, and everything in between will satisfy the monster movie lover in you.” Anything Horror
