Publisher's Summary

'The Cask of Amontillado' is Edgar Allan Poe’s short but enigmatic masterpiece. Set in an unnamed Italian City we hear the story of how Montresor lures Fortunato through the catacombs into the Montresor family vault and there chains him up and bricks him in for eternity. Why he does it we will never know, but he does so with a casual savagery that is truly chilling.
"Cask' was recorded on location in ancient vaults. Every footstep and cough, every brick and every echo are captured and you will never forget hearing the final, faraway declamation: 'In pace requiescat'
Pull on your headphones and Horror-Fi yourself. 'Revolutionise' is an often overused word; however this is what Horror-Fi achieve with their new recording technology/process for recording audio drama. Horror-Fi’s highly innovative production technique allows you the listener to immerse your aural senses in the very heart of the drama. Listen through head phones and experience the ultra vivid world the 3D Audio recording technique creates inside your mind.

What the Critics Say

"Have just listened to cask late at night with earphones! Can I say I thought this was tremendous, A real quantum leap forward. I know my Poe and I can't remember hearing a better audio adaptation of his work: Your Montressor is a terrific actor and, of course I was hugely impressed by the way the echoey vaults acoustic serves the drama." (Marty Ross)
"This is another type of experience, another level for audio drama, I have listened to plenty of excellent audio drama by the BBC but Horror-fi makes audio drama even better." (Elena Agullo Bernabeau)
