Publisher's Summary

Dark Adventure Radio Theatre: The Whisperer in Darkness presents Lovecraft's classic tale of alien horror in a 1930s-style radio drama. The tale comes alive with a cast of professional actors and thrilling sound effects. 

Albert Wilmarth, a professor of folklore at Miskatonic University, receives a curious piece of mail. It contains a recording of a man claiming that strange creatures live in the remote regions of the mountains of Vermont - just as described in old folklore. Its author presents compelling evidence and Professor Wilmarth eventually goes to Vermont to investigate for himself. What he discovers there is far, far worse than anything he could have imagined. Can the professor escape with his life and sanity, or will he become a part of a horror descended from interstellar space?

COVID didn’t stop them!

DART does such a good job! Their adaptations of Lovecraft’s stories are amazing! This one is even more so. They took a great story and told it in a way that really brought the story to life and didn’t subtract from the original. I loved the Whisperer in Darkness before. Now it’s even better!

Superb Production, Chilling Story

The HP Lovecraft Historical society is back with all new episodes to thrill and delight you! This excellent edition was recorded remotely (a lovely PDF of notes is included), but as always the production is superb. Voice talent is incredible and it sounds like you are back in time. This tale is thrilling, creepy and fun. Be sure to pick up their efforts, they are excellent repeat listens.

Why are you reading this? GO GET THIS TITLE!

Honestly, the HPLS can churn these out all year long, and I will listen to everyone. They are incredible well put together, the acting is on point, the sound effectrs appropriate and not overdone, and, frankly, the whole thing feels like a theater going experience.

If you have any interesting in HO Lovecraft, his works, Cthulhu, or spooky stories in general: GET THIS. Get every title they ever have done or consider to put out.

If you love Lovecraft you can’t beat these audio dramas

A very creative and fine audio drama from the good people from the HPL Historical Society. I recommend this to any Lovecraft fan. Unless of course the Mi-go’s are on to you...

Excellent

Excellent, of course. Excellent, mature story by Lovecraft. It is a fine production by the HPLHS produced during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cylinder recordings

More reruns needed to make a proper review.

Unlike the previous dramatizations Dagon and At the Mountains of Madness, this one is in recording instead of radio broadcast. It's different and special in a good way.
