"Rise and see what a genius of science hath wrought!"
Faust. Frankenstein. Moreau. Jekyll. Rotwang. The "mad scientist" has long been a beloved—and feared—character, and it's one that clearly appealed to H.P. Lovecraft. HPL loved science, and he knew all too well the frailty of the human mind. This special anthology episode brings together four tales of science at its strangest and most terrifying. Can a doctor penetrate the mysteries of a simple patient's bizarre and fantastical dream-life in "Beyond the Wall of Sleep"? Can an investigator survive a weird encounter with a deranged inventor in “The Electric Executioner”? Can a scheme of revenge be carried out through strange entomological means in “Winged Death”? And what horrors shall be revealed by a scientist's strange resonating machine in "From Beyond"?
