Publisher's Summary

An ancient evil awakens in the Southern Ocean, inspiring madness in all who sense its coming. The stars are right again in this audio adaptation of the classic story by H. P. Lovecraft that has inspired millions through literature, games, movies, comics, and the horror of their own imaginations. That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons even death may die.

Confusing Audio Mix

Great story & great performance by the readers, however the sound mix was not good at all. The volume levels of the background sounds often overwhelmed the narration making very difficult to follow the story in several key places. If this production would have cost more than $4 I would ask for my money back.

These guys had fun!

What made the experience of listening to The Call of Cthulhu the most enjoyable?

Creepy Cthulhu music.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Call of Cthulhu?

The police in New Orleans breaking up a cult ceremony.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Reminded me of War of Worlds, it only needed Orson Welles.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Finally it can be seen by all.

Any additional comments?

Altogether lovely and fun, would love a broader spectrum of short stories dramatized like this.

Decent horror

The narration is very engaging. Story is good but drags on at times. Would recommend.
