Experience three of the best-known stories by H.P. Lovecraft - the legendary doomed author Stephen King calls “The 20th century’s greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale” - curated and read by award-winning filmmaker Richard Stanley.
Nyarlathotep is the prose poem that marks the first appearance of "The Crawling Chaos", an Outer God in the Cthulu Mythos and one of Lovecraft’s most famous creations. Based on a vivid nightmare that Lovecraft experienced, the poem has been described as “a bleak view of human civilization in decline, and explores the mixed sensations of desperation and defiance in a dying society.” The Colour Out Of Space is one of Lovecraft’s best-known tales, a sci-fi/horror classic about a meteorite that crashes in the fictional town of Arkham, Massachusetts and proceeds to deform all vegetation on “the blasted heath” while driving its inhabitants slowly and homicidally insane.
The Dunwich Horror is the legendary core tale of the Cthulhu Mythos and perhaps Lovecraft’s most popular story. Set in the Miskatonic Valley of New England, it is the saga of deformity, prophesy, the Necronomicon and inhuman abomination that Twilight Zone Magazine called “One of the most terrifying horror stories of all time”.
Three Weird Tales of H.P. Lovecraft is read by acclaimed South African writer/director Richard Stanley, whose sci-fi/horror cult classics include Hardware, Dust Devil and his 2019 hit The Color Out Of Space starring Nicolas Cage and adapted from the Lovecraft classic.
