The Angell Box is a highly detailed real-life version of the box of occult papers and artifacts left behind by Professor George Gammell Angell in the story "The Call of Cthulhu." Our box contains the Wilcox bas relief, along with highly detailed replicas of key prop documents from the movie and other documents as described in (or implied by) Lovecraft's text. All the documents are carefully handmade by our prop slaves to appear as genuine as possible, with many being replicas of entirely real documents, all packaged in a hand-distressed, lockable metal box. The story comes to life in your very hands: it's Lovecraft's tale told in the form of props!
