The Yip of Cthulhu

About the Show


A disturbed scholar becomes obsessed with awakening a slumbering terror from the ocean floor – but it may be another beast altogether that drives him to the brink of madness.

This short film features a multimedia reading of a co(s)mic horror story by phillip andrew bennett low, excerpted from On the Concept of Irony (with No Reference to Socrates).
