Celebrate Halloween at the Gene Siskel Film Center with this faithful adaptation of one of H.P. Lovecraft’s creepiest stories, produced by the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society in a visual style that harks back to 1931. Folklore professor Albert Wilmarth of famed Miskatonic University in Arkham, Massachusetts, drops in on his fellow folklorist pen-pal deep in the Vermont woods to follow up on reports of alien sightings in the region. His host, an oddly indisposed man, is welcoming, but something is not quite right in this too-quiet household… DigiBeta video. (BS)
