Publisher's Summary

For decades, an old Providence church has stood empty, silently looming in the city's skyline. As a young writer looks into the history of the abandoned church - and the cult that once resided there - an ancient horror stirs. Will he be able finally to solve a mystery shrouded in darkness, or has he merely paved the way to become its next victim?

Loved the final sentence!

My first HPLHS experience, and I have never read the story before, so I don’t know how it compares to the original, but this version was very good.

The sound effects and different character voices really brought the story to life. It was quite creepy in certain parts and was a nice bit of entertainment for an hour or so.

Fall into the Ebon Darkness of Oblivion...

A fairly typical, but still frightening Lovecraft story.

This story accompanies "The Shambler From the Stars" by Robert Bloch.

A tale of the empty black void that lies between worlds and how gazing too long thereupon can drive any normal person into madness, the Haunter in the Dark is Enjoyable and chilling as always.

While as usual, listening to Lovecraft's stories without adaptation can be frighteningly dull, the HP Lovecraft historical society again brings to life a chilling tale. Stellar work.

Spooky Episode

This was another great episode of the Dark Adventure Theater. Many themes are relevant today, freedom of religion and immigration feature in this haunting story. Superb cast and production as usual.

WOW WOW WOW!!!

This story is actually the second in a kind of trilogy with Robert Bloch writing the first and third stories. However even as a standalone tale, this is amazing. One of the scarier stories DART has done, there are some really great performances and scoring to this. Really makes me hope DART will do the other two stories at some point.

True Excellence!

I cannot praise this enough & I will be buying as many of these old radio style dramatizations as I can find. There is simply nothing even close to these works around. Mr. Lovecraft would've been proud.

Amazing!

This is an amazing production - the dramatization is "on the edge of your seat" worthy!!

So, I'm off to find my next listen by the H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society!

Great

These dramatized versions of HPL are very good. They are well worth the money and time.
