The life and work of Providence's best-known fantasy and horror author, Howard Phillips Lovecraft, provide the backdrop for this walking tour.

Acknowledged genius of occult and horror fiction, Lovecraft's "Providence stories" (written between 1924 and 1935) provide the basis for this walk. Lovecraft wrote eloquently, and in great detail, about such landmarks as Prospect Terrace, the First Baptist Church, and Benefit Street houses. See the site of his former home, as well as the sights mentioned in The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, The Haunter of the Dark, The Shunned House, and The Call of Cthulhu. Lovecraft's own words offer a most amazing literary, historical, and architectural walking tour.
The tour lasts 90 minutes. 

Cost: Tickets are $19 per person, and includes a ticket to the Vortex Horror Festival

The tour departs from the John Brown House at 52 Power Street, Providence

Film: Location of choice at the Vortex, Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Horror Film Festival, Providence, RI.
