Festival veteran Tim Uren (of Chuck and Dexter and Ghoulish Delights, performs his solo version of H.P. Lovecraft’s classic tale of horror, “The Rats in the Walls."

The story depicts the last heir to a cursed lineage who returns to his ancestral home in England. The sound of vermin leads him to explore this ancient priory and discover the truth about his family and himself. Lovecraft’s skills as a master of dread are on full display in this story and the ending is both shocking and heartbreaking.

Tim Uren is a theater artist and board game writer who has worked on a number of Lovecraftian projects. As an actor, he and Joseph Scrimshaw portrayed hapless cultists Chuck and Dexter in the short films “Cthulhu for President” and “It’s the Great Cthulhu Chuck & Dexter.” Killing Joke Films joined with Uren for a filmed adaptation of “The Curse of Yig” in 2011.
