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?

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

A Fun and Enjoyable Listen!

Lovecraft's stories are always great, even the lesser known and lesser preferred ones. but they can be a challenging read fir those not used to his antiquated style. This adaptation is a perfect 'translation' of sorts, to better help understand the plot, characters and dark happenings. Thoroughly enjoyable!

Fun to listen

Always fun to listen to Dark Adventure Radio Theatre books. The book is pretty much a HP Lovecraft theme based on cultists trying to resurrect and bring forth the darkness. Not the best one though. I would recommend reading Call to Cthulhu, At the mountains of Madness and The shadow out of time by Dark Adventures Radio Theatre.

Another great work by HP Lovecraft HS

The story was close to the original but adapted for radio so it was amazing. The background sound effects and ambience was perfectly done. If you are a fan of Lovecraft or something similar give this a try.

‘Based on the Lovecraft ‘ and a great listen for sure !

It’s not 100% true to the book but actually fills in a lot of space from the original book which I have read multiple times . It makes it a group story versus one mans solitary journey . Great rendition and worth the price of admission . Keep it up gents !

Great

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

The story was ok.

This was a good performance from the radio theatere team, it draws you in and makes the story come alive. I liked it, but it was not my favorite Lovecraft story.

Well produced

Great take on Lovecraft’s work. I’m glad they also were true to the more pejorative side of Lovecraft’s writing.

Wow. Amazing audio effects and music

Incredibly well done, the music and sound effects make the story come alive.
The actors are awesome too.

The story itself is one of the best by Lovecraft.
