Prelude to the Exorcist
3 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Richard Matheson, one of our great horror story writers, presents a story by August Derleth. Derleth wrote may stories, patterning himself after the master, H. P. Lovecraft. He founded Arkham House Books and kept in print many of the pulp science fiction and horror writers of his day. In this one we have what could be a tired plot. A man must stay in an ancestral home in order to receive the home for himself and inherit a bunch of money. He must promise to protect the being of a man who practices sorcery. He has apparently endangered his soul. After a series of weird encounters, forces are brought in. The atmosphere is wonderful here. The mansion is spooky and well put together. There is a deep darkness in every scene. Well done.
