"On every side of the chamber the walls were alive with nauseous sound - the slithering of ravenous, gigantic rats."
Dark Adventure Radio Theatre: The Rats in the Walls 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.

An American businessman undertakes the restoration of his ancient ancestral home in England. After moving in, he's haunted by strange phenomena, apparently coming from the very walls of the legend-haunted mansion. A team of experts joins him to dig into the centuried structure's shadowed past, and its shadowy cellars. Can the investigators solve the lingering mystery of the grim and rumor-shrouded priory, or are they merely ushering in the most horrific chapter of the house's monstrous history?
The CD edition will feature the 76-minute audio show plus a collection of props to enhance your listening experience. They include:
- a formal invitation to Exham Priory from Mr. Delapore, including the dinner menu
- a rubbing made from one of the Roman inscriptions in the priory's cellars
- a newspaper clipping from the Manchester Guardian about some tragic events at the priory
- a scrap which might contain key hereditary secrets about the Delapore family
All of these great extras are complemented 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.
In honor of the anniversary of the death of HPL, downloads of The Rats in the Walls are FREE now through March 16.
