As reported by Derek Fetters in Audiodramatalk.com, Canada’s premier horror magazine, Rue Morgue, gives mention to audio drama’s only Lovecraftian soap-opera, The Unspeakable and the Inhuman in their most recent issue #86 on page 10.
Featured in a single paragraph in the “Roadkill from the Info Highway” section, Rue Morgue mentions the U&I Myspace page and as well as providing a positive review of the show!
So exactly what is “The Unspeakable and the Inhuman”
From the Myspace page is written:
“WHAT THIS IS
A serial audio-drama, soap opera inspired by the works of H. P. Lovecraft
Actually this is just the extended pilot, created initially to get feedback from people at the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival in Portland, OR, which happend Oct 6-8, ’06. We’ve decided to put the episode up here, and a few scenes which didn’t make onto the original disc, to help promote it. When we go into full production you may hear different actors, different effects, and cleaner sound.
HOW THIS HAPPENED
My friend Sam had an idea for a series of short films – a soap opera inspired by H. P. Lovecraft. At that time I had begun to develop a company that would produce serial audio drama for podcast.
We decided to team up, turning the soap into an audio serial. We were working on the series bible when we realized the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival was a month away. With such a perfect test audience soon to be assembled in Portland, OR we scrambled to create what became an extended pilot of our series – which we named The Unspeakable and the Inhuman, and that’s what you’re listening to here.” “
That’s more than good enough for us. Check out the horror at neohoodoostudio.com !
