The H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society is an organization that produces "entertainments" inspired by the works of H. P. Lovecraft. They began as a roleplaying group running Call of Cthulhu-inspired LARPs, then branched out in other directions, including movies and radio plays done in a Retraux style appropriate to the time period in which the original stories were published.
Their productions include:
- A Very Scary Solstice (2003) and An Even Scarier Solstice (2006): Albums of Filk Songs applying Lovecraftian themes to Christmas carols.
- The Call of Cthulhu (2005): An adaptation of 1926's "The Call of Cthulhu" as a black-and-white silent film.
- Dark Adventure Radio Theatre (2006 on): Audio adaptations of Lovecraft stories in the style of The Mercury Theatre on the Air, complete with fake period advertisements.
- The Whisperer in Darkness (2011): An adaptation of 1931's "The Whisperer in Darkness" as a black-and-white talkie in the style of Universal Horror.
