Good while commuting on bus

You need adequate concentration for listening to this audiobook. Thus listening to the audiobook while commuting on bus is far better compared to while working, driving by yourself or walking.

Have you got the Innsmouth look?

My first foray into DART and it was fantastic. Great story and very suspenseful. The voice acting was excellent and bought the story to life.

Another fantastic production from Dark Adventure!!

This is the third production the HPL Historical Society made in 2008 and it is as good as all those before it. This has always been one of my favorite Lovecraft stories and there have been several dramatizations of it, but this is the best by far. Loved the ending!!!

Flawless.

This is my favourite audio drama of all time. Matt Foyer is stunningly good as Robert Olmstead. I’ve listened to this tens of times. The production is simply put flawless.

Great Stuff

This dramatization mostly follows the original story. It has a story telling frame not in the original. The HPLHS has produced another fine presentation. This is both entertaining and an interpretation of Lovecraft 's work.

Terror in New England Town

This was another fabulous episode of the Dark Adventure Radio Theater. A young man learns the horrors of a town, not believing the warnings and stories he’s been told. Fantastic cast and excellent production. If you enjoyed this, be sure to pick up more episodes to delight and entertain you.
