Dunwich horror

"Let me tell ye suthin'--some day yew folks'll hear a child o' Lavinny's a-callin' its father's name on the top o' Sentinel Hill!" - Old Whateley


The Dunwich Horror is the title given to an entity from the short story of the same name, which is part of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos. The Dunwich Horror is a partially human monstrosity created when Noah Whately supposedly invoked the entity Yog-Sothoth to impregnate his daughter with a being which would bring about the end of humanity and open up the gate for the Great Old Ones to once again roam the world. Unlike its brother, Wilbur Whately, the other twin was unable to pass for human. Not only did it supposedly "resemble its father" far more than Wilbur did, but it was also invisible to the naked eye. For years, it was kept in the Whately's barn, being fed animals as it continued to grow and change. Finally, the entity grew to a large enough size to burst from the barnhouse and go on a rampage through the countryside. The monster was eventually stopped by Professor Henry Armitage, who managed to destroy it via a spell from the ancient Necronomicon. The hideous creature's first and last words were a cry to help from its father before it was obliterated by a bolt of magical lightning.
