Damn Arbor's Halloween Spooktacular: H.P. Lovecraft's The Hound

Gentle Reader, we have a real spooky treat for you. We have found a painstakingly restored copy of the CTN classic adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's The Hound. Shot in the greater Ypsi-Arbor area in 1997 this shot-by-shot HD restoration was made from the original SVHS tapes. Check out what critics have to say about the Hound:
"Claustrophobic and intense"
~ Charles P. Mitchell / The Complete H.P. Lovecraft Filmography

"The combination of music, deeply shadowed visuals, and slow, tense pace make this little production far more effective than any single big-budget adaptation of Lovecraft's work."
~ Stephen Mark Rainey / Author

"A beautiful psychological mood piece that one quickly ends up comparing with the work of Val Lewton"
~ Richard Sheib / Horror Online

In terms of cinematic adaptions of H.P. Lovecraft's cannon, The Hound ranks somewhere between Stuart Gordon's Dagon (2001) and Dan Gildark's Cthulhu (2007). Without further ado, we proudly present, The Hound:
