Two weird tales adapted and performed by R M Lloyd Parry
“Any magazine-cover hack can splash paint around and call it a ‘Witches’ Sabbath or ‘Portrait of the Devil.’ But only a real artist can make it scare you…”
In these haunting short stories by H P Lovecraft, the American master of the weird tale, an art critic and a philosopher get pushed to edge of sanity by the images and sounds they confront.
Pickman’s Model introduces us to the uncannily brilliant paintings of Richard Upton Pickman, a genius shunned by the artistic establishment because of the sickening realism of his canvases. It is paired with The Music of Eric Zann, an eerie tale of inspiration and possession that Lovecraft himself counted as a personal favourite.
