Storyline

This story revolves around a student of metaphysics, Charles Dexter Ward who befriends Erich Zann an aging violinist who lives on the floor above him. Charles is fascinated and then drawn to Zann's sinister yet wonderful music that he hears late at night drifting down from above. He, of course, discovers more then he bargains for when he peers at what beckons beyond that strange curtained window in Zann's room. Written by Ørnås

A Beautiful Film
7 February 2002 | by (Portland, Maine) – See all my reviews

This is an outstanding production of one of Lovecraft's best stories. I never would have thought it was possible to translate the story onto film, but John Strysik and his cast succeed with wonderful results. After years of obscurity the film has recently been shown at a few genre film festivals and appears on the first of the Lurker in the Lobby video compilations, meaning it is finally available for a wider audience to enjoy. I highly recommend seeking it out and seeing for your self how well Lovecraft can be adapted.
