Fresh new about the H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society’s second film, The Whisperer in Darkness, has come to light. When last we looked in on Whisperer, set in the low, green mountains of southern Vermont, the crew was wrapping up post-production. Now the film is complete and making the rounds of film festivals all over the world.
Locally, it screened recently at the Berkshire International Film Festival in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. The next regional screening is at the Fantasia film festival in Montreal on July 26th.
Work on the home video version continues as well, with standard DVD and Blu-ray versions in the offing. Features include lots of language tracks — 25 at last count — interviews, behind the scenes footage and more. Drop date is estimated somewhere within October 2011. Here’s to a Halloween treat!
