"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate its contents..."

Dark Adventure Radio Theatre®: The Call of Cthulhu brings Lovecraft's tale to life as it might have been adapted for radio in the 1930s. In the style of The War of the Worlds, The Shadow and other classic radio plays, Dark Adventure Radio Theatre® dramatizes HPL's story with a huge cast of professional actors, exciting sound effects and thrilling original music by Troy Sterling Nies (composer for The Call of Cthulhu and The Whisperer in Darkness). This globe-trotting tale of cosmic horror is one of Lovecraft's most enjoyed weird tales.

Perhaps you've seen our silent film of the same story. Now you can close your eyes and listen as the horror unfolds before you, from the bayous of Louisiana to the remote South Pacific. It's a whole new way to experience a story cherished by Lovecraft fans as one of his best.

In addition to the full 77 minute radio drama on CD, you'll get these carefully made props from the story to enhance your listening experience:

• A clipping from the Sydney Bulletin, describing the strange idol found on the steam yacht The Alert

• A page from Wilcox's dream journal where he recounts his bizarre nightmares of R'lyeh for Professor Angell

• A photograph of the Esquimaux tupilak recovered by Professor Webb from the Greenland cult

• The booking record and mug shot of the cultist Castro after his arrest by Inspector Legrasse

These great props are complimented by the fantastic artwork of illustrator Darrell Tutchton in the style you've come to know and love from other episodes of Dark Adventure Radio Theatre®. And if you order the CD, you get a free downloadable MP3 so you can start enjoying the show now.

The cover art is available on shirts and other fun items from our Redbubble store!

I love all of the dark adventure radio theatre productions. I will buy them all in the future and I especially love the Call of Cthulhu.

John Rickerson
Call of Cthulhu - Great Adaptation

Thoroughly enjoyed this - the slight change in narrative perspective only added to the enjoyment. Great voice acting, the whole radio theatre vibe was perfect. Just purchased 2 more of my favorites and will undoubtedly be back for more.

Great rendition!

I thoroughly enjoyed this. I really like the D.A.R.T. series; I have 12 now.

Where it started.

This was my first H.P. Lovecraft story I read. The acting is top notch, the music is awesome, the twist was the best part.

Great production value

This DART seemed to use big orchestral scores when recreating the more tense/action-heavy moments which felt very cinematic and fun. While they did clean up on some of HPL's more racist moments in the story, I *really* wish they would have said Black instead of "negro", as it makes me cringe inside every time I hear it. That said, there is an interesting resolution to that point at the end if the tale that I don't want to spoil. :) Another well-earned 5 stars
