Publisher's Summary

When you think on the mysterious, the uncanny, the unexplained - one name comes to mind: Houdini! Dark Adventure Radio Theatre celebrates Houdini’s enduring legacy with a special tale from Houdini himself as told by master storyteller H.P. Lovecraft. Journey with us back to a time before the war, as Houdini searches for his next great illusion in exotic Egypt. His quest to master the Orient’s mysteries leads him to temples deep beneath the desert sands, and into the clutches of fearsome Bedouins. Not even the great Houdini can escape the thrilling and horrifying secrets which have lurked for untold millennia under the pyramids in “Imprisoned with the Pharaohs”!

Such a fun episode!!!

Fans of the earlier episode of DART will definitely find this episode to be different, but I enjoyed the change of pace. I typically like my Lovecraft dark, ominous, and serious, but this was something else. This was much more an adventurous episode; it felt like I was watching the Brendan Fraser "Mummy" movies which I also really enjoy. I wouldn't want ever episode to be like this but something about this really worked, great job HPLHS!

Better than the original

This is better than the original in that it has modern sensibilities. I recommend it.

Fun With Houdini in Egypt

This is another excellent entry in the outstanding Dark Adventure Radio Theater series. This one is a bit different since we are following Harry Houdini and his wife during a thrilling adventure in Egypt. The production is outstanding as usual and the voice talent is simply superb. I have nearly all of these adventures and love them all!

A rare miss

I've enjoyed most of these, crafted with great pulp attitude and flair. But this one was was a rare miss, focused so much on Houdini the actual horror and the big reveal at the end that was the core of the original Lovecraft story fell flat. The horror aspect to a major back seat here to its loss. Music, acting and sound effects all spot on as usual for the genre.

Evil and Egyptology

What did you like most about this story? My educational background was in Archaeology, so this theme suited me fine, despite Mr Lovecraft taking liberties. Expect to be immersed in the mystery of Egypt. What did you least like? Racism, but it is Lovecraft, after all. How was the quality of the narration? Exceptional quality as always produced by the HP Lovecraft historical society.
