Summary

Dark Adventure Radio Theatre's Bad Medicine brings three classic tales of horror and medicine to life in a 1930s-style radio drama. Edgar Allan Poe's "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar" and H. P. Lovecraft's stories "Cool Air" and "The Picture in the House" are brought to life by a talented cast of professional actors, exciting sound effects and thrilling original music by Reber Clark.

This special anthology episode brings together three tales of unusual physicians and their even more unusual treatments. Can an aged physician stave off the grasp of death in "Cool Air"? Will a determined mesmerist unlock the mystery of mortality in "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar"? And can an alienist free a young man crippled by horrifying memories in "The Picture in the House"? 

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

Superbly creepy stuff!

I’m a big fan of the HP Lovecraft Historical Society productions, and I’m thrilled to see them available on Audible. This one’s a bit of a departure, adapting three stories (two from Lovecraft, one from Poe), but it’s a great introduction to the HPLHS. Give it a try, then pick up the rest. You won’t be sorry!

Good stuff

Great stories and a perfect rendition of each one. Cool Air is one of my favourites so enjoyed the modern take on the protagonist.

Deliciousness

This anthology was truly terrifying and kept me on the edge of my seat. The stories are all classics and the performances were top notch! Can't wait to listen to more!
