The Dunwich Horror is the story of Wilbur Whateley, son of a deformed albino mother and an unknown father, and the strange events surrounding his birth and precocious development. Wilbur matures at an abnormal rate, reaching manhood within a decade--all the while indoctrinated him into dark rituals and witchcraft by his grandfather. Lurking in the quiet village of Dunwich, a supernatural horror lies in wait in this classic tale of horror by H.P. Lovecraft.

When a cute college coed and her professor visit the library at the infamous Miskatonic University, they discover a young man who wishes to check out the dreaded Necronomicon. An ancient book for divining demons, the Necronomicon allows its user to bring hell to Earth, and human sacrifice is the required offering.

Written in 1928, The Dunwich Horror was first published in the April 1929 issue of Weird Tales. It is considered one of the core stories of the Cthulhu Mythos.
