Clever, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you are interested in a radiotheater presentation of Lovecraft "horror " stories presented by well-voiced actors and spooky effects.

Don't see it if you would rather see a play of the stories and don't like fog machines. Read more

See it if You enjoy the old time radio show genre.

Don't see it if You have a short attention span.

"Last night’s performance of two well-known Lovecraft tales was a disappointment...'The Horror at the Museum' started out entertainingly...Alas, the presentation soon blew up into an orgy of yelling...'The Call of Cthulhu' fared better...The presentation did convey something of Lovecraft’s extravagant imagination and effulgent language...It’s possible–likely, I’d say–other stories in the Lovecraft arsenal are making better evenings of Halloween-themed theater."
