Founded in Colorado in 1984, it is now based in Glendale, California.[1] Their motto is Ludo Fore Putavimus ("We thought it would be fun").[2]

HPLHS produces a number of Cthulhu Mythos films and sound recordings, under its Mythoscope and Mythophone labels, respectively. They also offer props, both for sale and for free download.
