Three classic Lovecraft tales told using animated clay puppets and miniatures. 'The picture in the house' - a man shelters from an approaching storm in a seemingly abandoned house. He finds an old book entitled "Regnum Congo" and an old man who is obsessed with a disturbing illustration within it. 'The Dunwich horror' - in which a university Professor is awoken one night by the barks and snarls of his watchdog and when he goes to the university library makes a grim discovery. 'The festival' - A solitary stranger travels to an ancient seaport upon the Winter Solstice for a once-in-a-century festival.
