It seems fitting that the same group who brought us the silent film adaptation of The Call of Cthulhu (pictures without speech) should now bring us a radio play adaptation (speech without pictures).

Dark Adventure Radio Theatre: The Call of Cthulhu
Dark Adventure Radio Theatre: The Call of Cthulhu brings Lovecraft's tale to life as it might have been adapted for radio in the 1930s. In the style of The War of the Worlds and The Shadow. Dark Adventure Radio Theatre dramatises HPL's story with a huge cast of professional actors, exciting sound effects and thrilling original music by Troy Sterling Nies (composer for The Call of Cthulhu and The Whisperer in Darkness). This globe-trotting tale of cosmic horror is one of Lovecraft's most enjoyed weird tales.
In addition to the full 77 minute radio drama on CD, you'll get these carefully made props from the story to enhance your listening experience:
- A clipping from the Sydney Bulletin, describing the strange idol found on the steam yacht The Alert.
- A page from Wilcox's dream journal where he recounts his bizarre nightmares of R'lyeh for Professor Angell.
- A photograph of the Esquimaux tupilak recovered by Professor Webb from the Greenland cult.
- The booking record and mug shot of the cultist Castro after his arrest by Inspector Legrasse.
