Great performance

The actors are great. They make you see the words. The added sound effects bring the story to life (a car driving by, a horse drawn carriage, people talking in the background, glass breaking). Every character has a different voice. Great reading. I loved it.

Best version of this story yet!

I've listened to several different readings of this story as well as several dramatizations of it and this one has surpassed them all. It stayed true to Lovecraft's work while bringing that work to life in such a cool way. Please keep these Daek Adventure programs coming!

great rendition

I've seen and read reanimator and this dramatization makes the story even better. I hope they try to make this version into some sort of film.

excellent adaptation of a classic

All I have to say about this work is I adore the HP Lovecraft Historical society. i was thrilled from the start to finish. can't wait to hear others. I have Dagon to hear next.

Fantastic Version of My Favourite H.P. Lovecraft Story

Well that was exciting!
True to the original story but with the added sound effects and different voices it was a real treat!

Like all of Lovecraft’s works, it was a product of its time and so there is the inevitable racism. It is pretty offensive, so I thought I’d mention it.

Five stars, as the story was really brought to life.

Chilling Stuff!

Clearly, "Herbert West" has become the inspiration for much of what we now perceive as standard "Undead Fiction".

An good story, though not overly horrific, and brilliantly narrated as always.
