Grimm brings out The Whisper in the Darkness

TWIDWStill2Grimm Up North in collaboration with THE HORRORSHOW.TV are proud to announce the UK release of The Whisper in the Darkness out now.

Produced in 2010, THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS was lovingly crafted by a collection of stalwart HP Lovecraft Society members, as part of their continuing mission to faithfully adapt the author’s oeuvre from the page to the screen.

THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS, Directed by Sean Branney, is considered by many critics to be the most authentic movie adaptation of Lovecraft’s writing and is presented in sumptuous vintage style; the elegant black and white cinematography makes THE WHISPERER IN DARKNESS look and feel like a 1930’s classic universal horror movie akin to Frankenstein, Dracula and King Kong.WITD-Poster-Artwork
