"The hills of western Massachusetts contain dark and terrible secrets..."
Dark Adventure Radio Theatre: The Dunwich Horror brings Lovecraft's tale to life as it might have been adapted for radio during his lifetime. In the style of The War of the Worlds, The Shadow and other classic vintage 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). Relive the excitement of 1930s radio with one of the most popular tales of the Cthulhu Mythos: The Dunwich Horror.
The hills of Western Massachusetts contain dark and terrible secrets. Strange families keep to themselves and practice rites of ancient and unspeakable black magic. These dreadful and unholy rituals give birth to a monstrosity beyond imagination, a monstrosity that threatens mankind itself! Can a brave handful of intrepid scholars hope to confront the otherwordly destruction of “The Dunwich Horror”?
In addition to the full 75 minute radio drama on CD, you'll get these carefully made props from the story to enhance your listening experience:
• A clipping from a 1917 copy of the Arkham Advertiser describing the Whateley family and the strangeness of the Dunwich region
• A vintage map of Dunwich, Sentinel Hill and the surrounding region
• A page from Wilbur Whateley's diary with its bizarre occult cypher*
• A replica of a key page from the Whateleys' copy of John Dee's Necronomicon
And of course it's beautifully produced and packaged with the same deranged attention to detail that you'll find in other HPLHS products. And if you order the CD, it now includes a free download of the MP3 so you can start listening immediately!
