"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate its contents..." Dark Adventure Radio Theatre: The Call of Cthulhu brings Lovecraft's tale to life as it might have been adapted for radio in the 1930s. In the style of The War of the Worlds, The Shadow and our own At the Mountains of Madness, The Dunwich Horror, The Shadow Out of Time and The Shadow Over Innsmouth, 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 and The Whisperer in Darkness). This globe-trotting tale of cosmic horror is one of Lovecraft's most enjoyed weird tales. Perhaps you've seen our silent film of the same story. Now you can close your eyes and listen as the horror unfolds before you, from the bayous of Louisiana to the remote South Pacific. It's a whole new way to experience a story cherished by Lovecraft fans as one of his best. In addition to the full 77 minute radio drama on CD, you'll get these carefully made props from the story to enhance your listening experience: • A clipping from the Sydney Bulletin, describing the strange idol found on the steam yacht The Alert • A page from Wilcox's dream journal where he recounts his bizarre nightmares of R'lyeh for Professor Angell • A photograph of the Esquimaux tupilak recovered by Professor Webb from the Greenland cult • The booking record and mug shot of the cultist Castro after his arrest by Inspector Legrasse These great props are complimented 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.
