Ontological INCUBATOR
St. Mark's Church
New York City


A haunted portrait of evil and isolation; a young Robert Bloch is enlightened by the aging H.P. Lovecraft.

A moody piece of unearthliness set in Arkham, Mass in the 1930's. The simple ticking of a tube-powered metronome conjures horrific visions as insanity takes hold of an aging writer.
