The Whisperer in Darkness: The Trailer
Lord Bassington-Bassington is working on the program for the next Little Storping in-the-Swuff Howard Phillips Lovecraft, Lewis Theobald III and Sundry Mythos Writers Cinematographic Festival (and Open Absinthe Bar). And to his lordship's delight, work on the dramatization of H.P. Lovecraft's "The Whisperer in Darkness" seems to be continuing at a good pace.
The project is done by The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society, who gave us the excellent silent version of the Call of Cthulhu a few years ago. "The Whisperer in Darkness" will use a more commercial approach (it's a talkie), but it still looks like that rarest of cinematographic creatures: The faithful H.P. Lovecraft adaptation.
The trailer for "The Whisperer" is too broad to be embedded in the Chronicles, so you'll have to go to their blog or to YouTube to see it. Do this.
This will, quite possibly, be the most satisfying Lovecraft film ever produced.
