Grimm Up North
Our friends at Grimm Up North, in collaboration with The Horror Show, have announced the UK release of H.P. Lovecraft’s The Whisperer in Darkness, available now. Read on for the details of this Christmas treat!
From the Press Release:
Grimmfest festival favourite H.P. Lovecraft’s The Whisperer in Darkness is finally available in the UK to stream or download at Horrorshow.TV, the UK’s new home for watching all the latest horror movie releases.
Completed in 2012, THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS was produced as a labour of love by the H.P. Lovecraft Society in their continuing mission to faithfully adapt Lovecraft’s films in the style from the era they were born in, as seen in 2005’s silent expressionist picture The Call of Cthulu. THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS, directed by Sean Branney, is considered by many critics to be the most authentic movie adaptation of Lovecraft’s writing and is presented in sumptuous vintage style. The film utilises the cinematic technique Mythoscope, which creates the feel of vintage motion pictures through modern techniques to provide elegant black and white cinematography, making THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS look and feel like a 1930’s classic Universal horror movie akin to Frankenstein, Dracula, and King Kong.
THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS is based on Lovecraft’s science fiction/horror novella which was originally published in 1931. The film follows the weird journey of real life folklore professor of the Miskatonic University, Albert Wilmarth (Matt Foyer), as he delves into the legends of strange creatures that are said to inhabit the most remote mountains of Vermont. After farmer Henry Akeley (Barry Lynch) sends tales and photographs of otherworldly footprints and grotesque creatures found in surrounding rivers, Wilmarth arrives in Vermont to uncover the terrifying truths behind these legends, which extend to visiting strangers from outer space and the darkest pits of hell.
The Horror Show is a brand new digital streaming service exclusively for horror fans. As well as the short films offered as part of their ‘Short Stack’, they will be adding new horror features from well known favourites to lesser known films. This is the first of a series of Grimmfest festival films to be made available on the website with more great movies coming soon under the Grimmfest banner.
