In 1931 H.P. Lovecraft wrote his classic tale of alien horror, "The Whisperer in Darkness". Lovecraft is now considered one of America's foremost writers of horror fiction, standing alongside the likes of Stephen King and Edgar Allan Poe. His story, which blends horror and science fiction, relates the adventure of Albert Wilmarth, a folklore professor at Miskatonic University, as he investigates legends of strange creatures rumored to dwell in the most remote mountains of Vermont. Wilmarth's investigation leads him to a discovery of horrors quite beyond anything he ever imagined, and ends in a desperate attempt to escape the remote New England hills with his life and sanity intact.
The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society adapted Lovecraft's story as a feature-length motion picture, shooting it in the style of the classic horror films of the early '30s such as Dracula, King Kong and Frankenstein. As with their previous silent movie adaptation of Lovecraft's "The Call of Cthulhu", the HPLHS used their Mythoscope(tm) technique to evoke the look and feel of early cinema. This production shot on location in Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts to authentically capture the actual locations depicted in the story. A cast of Los Angeles actors, including Matt Foyer and Barry Lynch, bring the sweeping period tale to dramatic life. The result is a motion picture (a talkie, no less) that expands Lovecraft's short story into the kind of thrilling cinematic experience that Lovecraft himself might have enjoyed in 1931.
