"There was thunder in the air on the night I went to the deserted mansion atop Tempest Mountain to find the lurking fear."
Dark Adventure Radio Theatre: The Lurking Fear brings to life H.P. Lovecraft's tale of a lingering supernatural horror in a 1930s-style radio drama. Dark Adventure Radio Theatre presents the tale with a huge cast of professional actors, exciting sound effects and thrilling original music by Troy Sterling Nies. Click here for more information about our other Lovecraft stories in the Dark Adventure Radio Theatre series. They're like movies you can enjoy with your eyes closed.
A freak storm decimates the population of a remote village in the Catskill Mountains. As the local authorities investigate, they begin to suspect there's more at work than unseasonable weather. Their inquiries lead them to an abandoned mansion from the days when New York was a Dutch colonial territory. Is the old mansion haunted by the victim of a tragic murder? Are strange wild animals roaming the surrounding woods, preying on human victims? Or could there be more terrible forces at work, lurking unseen in the foreboding back woods?
The CD edition will feature the 70-ish minute audio show plus a collection of props to enhance your listening experience. Current plans include:
- a map of upstate New York, featuring the Catskill Mountains, Lefferts Corners and other locations of interest
- a newspaper account of unspeakable tragedy in a rural mountain village
- the gruesome report of the medical examiner
- Arthur Munroe's press credentials
