Lovecraft’s novella “The Thing on the Doorstep.” Most of SUITABLE FLESH is in the form of an extended flashback, as psychiatrist Dr. Elizabeth Derby (Heather Graham), currently confined to a padded cell, explains her version of recent events to her friend and colleague Dr. Daniella Upton, played by Barbara Crampton (one of the film’s producers). Joe Lynch directed and is one of the executive producers on SUITABLE FLESH, which was written for the […]Read On »

Lovecraft Director: Joe Lynch Distributor: RLJE Films/Shudder Release Date: October 27, 2023 SUITABLE FLESH is body-swap horror based on the story “The Thing on the Doorstep” by H.P. Lovecraft. If the film doesn’t feel especially Lovecraftian, it’s worth it to check out the original, at least after viewing. This shows us how nimbly screenwriter Dennis Paoli (a stalwart collaborator of the late Lovecraftian filmmaker Stuart Gordon) has retained the tale’s […]Read On »

Simmons, Sylvia Grace Crim, André Lamar, Tordy Clark Writers: Joshua Hull and David Ian McKendry, story by Todd Rigney Director: Rebekah McKendry Distributor: Shudder Release Date: August 18, 2022 For a while, GLORIOUS seems like it may be priming us for a cosmic horror dirty joke. After all, the fate of the universe hinges on action largely set in the men’s room of a rest stop. To the great credit of director Rebekah McKendry, screenwriters Joshua Hull and David Ian McKendry, working from a story by Todd Rigney, and lead actors Ryan Kwanten […]Read On »

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Portia Chellelynn, Michelle Morris, Julie Anne Prescott, Erin Trimble, Shonda Laverty, Andie Noir, John Johnson, Joe Padgett, Solon Tsangaras Writers: Bobby Easley & Ken Wallace Director: Bobby Easley Distributor: Horror Wasteland Pictures International Release Date: July 5, 2022 (digital/DVD) Fun fact: H.P. Lovecraft’s 1932 short story “The Dreams in the Witch House” really is partly about geometry. Lovecraft’s protagonist, Walter Gilman, is a mathematician trying to prove that certain shapes and planes, in relation to one another, can create gateways to other universes. That angle (pardon the pun) has been adopted in H.P. LOVECRAFT’S WITCH HOUSE, […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Katia Winter, Ted Levine, Michael McMillian, Jenny Gabrielle Writer: Blair Erickson, story by Daniel J. Healy Director: Blair Erickson Distributor: XLrator Media Theatrical Release Date: January 10, 2014 Although it relies to a large extent on found footage, fear not the format – THE BANSHEE CHAPTER is actually a well-made, delightfully acted and best of all honestly scary brain twist of a horror movie. Between some cleverly edited real footage (we hear from President Bill Clinton, of all people), the name-check of H.P. Lovecraft and a character clearly patterned after Hunter S. Thompson, it’s a trip in […]Read On »
