Making its Blu-ray debut next week is Stuart Gordon’s adaptation of the H.P. Lovecraft story. Obsessive scientist Dr. Pretorius (Ted Sorel) and his assistant (Jeffrey Combs) invent the Resonator, a device designed to stimulate the brain’s pineal gland and expand the powers of the mind. The machine gives them more than they bargained for when a parallel universe inhabited by slimy creatures ready to prey on humans reveals itself. Pretorius meets a sticky end, returning as a grotesque, deformed being.

Born from a love of horror, ponderous thoughts and meandering topics, Exquisite Terror is a periodical that takes a more academic approach to the genre.
