THESE VINTAGE RADIO RE-CREATIONS ARE JUST TERRIFIC. A BIT PRICEY BUT YOU ALWAYS GET THE LITTLE EXTRA TOUCHES, LIKE FAKE NEWSPAPER CLIPPINGS ETC., THAT MAKE LISTENING TO THESE CDS MORE THAN JUST AN AUDIO EXPERIENCE. IF YOU LOVE THE WRITINGS OF LOVECRAFT THEIR PRODUCTS ARE A MUST-HAVE!

Yet another 'new' classic from the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society! Let us all hope that a few more quality HPL stories emerge from these great actors. Perhaps, shall we say: The Whisperer in Darkness next? There's a great one. Also, how about a collection of shorts on a two-disc set; shall we say: The Shunned House; The Terrible Old Man and maybe The Horror at Redhook? Just a humble suggestion....
Another great job by HPLHS! I wish the story was longer, but the source material was short as well. Right amount of Houdini and creepy. Bring on The Rats in the Walls or my guilty favorite - The Mound!
5.0 out of 5 starsHPL, Houdini, & Horror in a Hammer-style Egypt
Reviewed in the United States on April 7, 2016
The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society's Dark Adventure Radio Theatre has taken one of HPL's less known stories (and ghost-written for Harry Houdini, no less), Imprisoned with the Pharaohs, and recast it as a old-time radio drama, complete with sound effects and cheeky radio advertisements. The resulting show is, admittedly, a smidge slow to get going, but, when it does, it rivals the great Hammer Horror Mummy films in terms of exotic Egyptian adventure. Highly recommended, especially the CD version which comes with a slew of props to support the radio drama.
Note: This listener picked this one up at NecronomiCon 2015 and thus the lack of the confirmed purchaser (from Amazon) notation on this review.

This is a strange entry into the HPL cannon in that it is written as if the author is the famous escapologist Houdini. It contains some beautifully atmospheric writing and the evocation of the Egyptian streets and landscape are stunning. Aside from a few weird mispronunciations Staten Elliot is an excellent reader and keeps the listener enthralled throughout. Another winner from Fantom films
