Suitable Flesh: Joe Lynch’s H.P. Lovecraft movie gets a retro-style poster

The H.P. Lovecraft adaptation Suitable Flesh, coming our way from Joe Lynch and Barbara Crampton, has received a cool retro-style poster

Director Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2, Mayhem) has teamed up with screenwriter Dennis Paoli – who has contributed to the screenplays for some of the most popular H.P. Lovecraft adaptations ever made; Re-Animator, From Beyond, Castle Freak, Dagon, Masters of Horror: Dreams in the Witch-House – and producer Barbara Crampton (who was in Re-Animator, From Beyond, and Castle Freak) for the new Lovecraft adaptation Suitable Flesh, which is set to have its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival this month and has secured a worldwide distribution deal with RLJE Films and the Shudder streaming service. In the build-up to the film’s premiere, the folks at Collider got the exclusive first look at a poster for Suitable Flesh, and now you can check it out at the bottom of this article!

Described as an “erotic body-swapping horror”, this adaptation of The Thing on the Doorstep stars Heather Graham (Boogie Nights) and Judah Lewis (The Babysitter). Graham plays psychiatrist Elizabeth Derby, who becomes obsessed with helping a young patient suffering extreme personality disorder. But her desire to help leads her into dark occult danger as she tries to escape a horrific fate.

Bruce Davison (X-Men), Johnathon Schaech (That Thing You Do!), and Graham Skipper (The Mind’s Eye) are also in the cast.

Crampton produced the film alongside Bob Portal, Inderpal Singh, and Joe Wicker for Amp, in association with Eyevox Entertainment. Brian Yuzna, who produced Re-Animator, From Beyond, and Dagon (and directed the Re-Animator sequels) is on board as executive producer, as are Eyevox’s Rick Moore, Amp’s James Norrir and Nina Kolokouri, and Lynch. Amp is handling worldwide sales – and Crampton is the Vice President of Production and Development at Amp.

RLJE Films will be giving Suitable Flesh a theatrical, VOD, and digital release later this year, and then that will be followed by a streaming release on the Shudder service.

The poster for Suitable Flesh has a very cool retro style to it that makes me even more eager to see how the movie has turned out.
