Randolph Carter moves into a squalid boarding house in the summer of 1925 where he becomes friends with a mysterious doctor who revives him after a near-fatal heart attack. Soon after Carter discovers the awful truth about the doctor, and the fragile line that separates life and death. Featuring a stellar performance by Jack Donner as Dr. Muñoz, Cool Air remains a haunting reminder of the power of the human will.
Cool Air is a spectacular piece of work, and it demonstrates the importance of getting good actors... In adapting this story, one of the few HPL stories where there are no characters who are actually evil, the story of Dr. Muñoz is expanded upon with the addition of a lost love interest, increasing my sympathy for the character and making the ending even sadder and quite moving.
Plus: Nyarlathotep, The Hound, An Imperfect Solution, The Hapless Antiquarian, and interviews with the cast & crew of Cool Air, bonus shorts, and an interview with scholar S.T. Joshi.
Running time approximately 148 minutes.
