While H.P. Lovecraft regarded The Music of Erich Zann as one of his greatest works, he could have never predicted that his prolific short story would some day be turned into an astounding short film.

Adapted by Jared Skolnick, a Massachusetts-based filmmaker and photographer, this award-winning rendition has screened at film festivals all over the globe: from Cyprus to California, New York to Oregon — even Lovecraft’s hometown of Providence, Rhode Island — bringing Zann’s music to the ears of all those brave enough to listen.
