Publisher's Summary

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. It’s 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?

HPLHS Radio Theater at its Best!

Another fantastic performance of the macabre in the style of old radio serials. Listen - if you dare!

Hard to Understand

The narrators were extremely hard to understand when portraying some of the locals. The spoke to low and the accents that they tried to imitate made it difficult to even understand what they were saying. Other than that, I enjoyed the story.

A nice spin on the original story. I need fifteen words more, what a waste.

Action

Finally we get close to a real monster instead of just hearing it from tales of intrigue.
