Frightful and Dark.

A perilous exploration of the antediluvian past, and a journey through the pain of mental trauma and wild locations, the Shadow out of Time is a great way to experience the dark perspective of Lovecraft. As an Australian, i loved the exploration of the Outback!

Wow I never knew this story was so good!!!

I have always found this Lovecraft story to be a little less interesting than some of his better know work. Wow was I wrong. This just became one of my favorite Lovecraft stories and the best episode of Dark Adventure yet! The way these radio shows bring to life Lovecraft's work while still maintaining the elements of the written versions that make his writing so captivating is amazing.

Favorite of the Dark Adventure series

This is exceptionally well produced and performed. I particularly commend the performance of the main character, but they all do an excellent job with the diction and vocabulary of the time period. It’s quite immersive.

The intro announcer is a bit corny, but if you listen to the other HPLHS radio dramas, you might catch a few references to the “sponsors”, which I found clever.

Terrifying Secret Buried by Amnesia

Another fantastic episode of Dark Adventure Radio Theater. A professor loses the memory of five years of his life. This adaptation was outstanding as usual. The production, sound effects and music are wonderful. What really sets this apart is the superb vocal talents of the actors. Every voice is pitch perfect in character and they perfectly immerse you in this world. So much fun!
