On the black moors of northern England in the shadow of a modern missile base, a band of Druids enacts their pagan rites… Rites that unleash a nightmare vision of two unspeakable horrors – ancient supernatural evil and nuclear catastrophe…
Room 5064 Productions are producing a full cast audio drama adaptation of classic folk horror novel THE HUNGRY MOON, with permission and input from its legendary author Ramsey Campbell.
First published in 1986, THE HUNGRY MOON won the British Fantasy Award for Best Novel. Set in an isolated Peak District village, it brilliantly combines the fear of a nuclear holocaust with the resurgence of an ancient supernatural evil. Stephen King, a longstanding fan of Campbell’s work, said of THE HUNGRY MOON:
“[Campbell] uses the Lovecraftian themes of survival, the occult and the things which may live at the rim of our universe in a way that rings true for our time.”
THE HUNGRY MOON by Ramsey Campbell, dramatized for audio by Ian Winterton, will be produced by Ian Winterton and Room 5064’s Creative Director Gareth Kavanagh and is scheduled to be released as a full-cast 140-minute audio drama in September 2020 with an RRP of £12.99 for download, or £15.99 for double CD with download.
