    Resumo The Dunwich Horror

    A classic tale of terror and grotesquerie by the original master of horror

    H. P. Lovecraft proclaimed his Dunwich Horror "so fiendish" that his editor at Weird Tales "may not dare to print it." The editor, fortunately, knew a good thing when he saw it.

    One of the core Cthulhu stories, The Dunwich Horror introduces us to the grim village of Dunwich, where each member of the Whateley family is more grotesque than the other. There's the grandfather, a mad old sorcerer; Lavinia, the deformed, albino woman; and Wilbur, a disgusting specimen who reaches full manhood in less than a decade. And above all, there's the mysterious presence in the farmhouse, unseen but horrifying, which seems to be growing . . .

    Wilbur tracks down an original edition of the Necronomicon and breaks into a library to steal it. But his reward eludes him: he gets caught, and the result is death by guard dog. Meanwhile, left unattended, the monster at the Whateley house keeps expanding, until the farmhouse explodes and the beast is unleashed to terrorize the poor, aggrieved village of Dunwich.

    As chilling today as it was upon its publication in 1929, The Dunwich Horror is a horrifying masterwork by the man Stephen King called "the twentieth century's greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale."

    Mais Informações The Dunwich Horror

    Set in the creepy village of Dunwich, a disturbed man named Wilbur Whateley ages quickly - far too quickly. A grown man by age ten, locals shun him and his family, and animals, fear and despise him.

    All the while, his sorcerer grandfather indoctrinates Wilbur into certain dark rituals and the study of witchcraft. For his grandfather is harbouring a terrible being, a grotesque monster which must be fed cattle, draining them of blood before devouring them completely. And when the truth behind the creature's origins and Wilbur's parentage is revealed, the true terror begins.

    A grotesquely disturbing tale, "The Dunwich Horror" was almost not published for being 'too weird'. But thankfully for horror fans and Lovecraft fans alike, his works have now been recognised for the horror masterpieces and genre-defining classics that they are.
