Colin digs up Dan O'Bannon's H.P. Lovecraft adaptation The Resurrected (1992 - aka Shatterbrain aka The Ancestor), based on "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward". A beautiful woman hires a private investigator (24's John Terry) to find out what's gone wrong with her scientist husband (Chris Sarandon), stumbling onto a centuries-old conspiracy involving a 1770's warlock and black magic. Listen as we talk about the literary influence of Lovecraft's fiction on the horror genre, name drop both The Call of Cthulhu and The Haunted Palace (a 1963 version of the same story) and more on this week's exciting episode!
