Suitable Flesh trailer: Joe Lynch’s H.P. Lovecraft movie will be in theatres and on VOD next month

A trailer has been released for the H.P. Lovecraft adaptation Suitable Flesh, directed by Joe Lynch, starring Heather Graham

One of my most eagerly anticipated horror releases of the year is the H.P. Lovecraft adaptation Suitable Flesh, which is coming our way from the team of director Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2, Mayhem), 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). The film is set to receive a theatrical and VOD release on October 27th, courtesy of Shudder and Vertigo Releasing – and with its release date just a month away, a trailer for the film has been unveiled. Check it out in the embed above!

Suitable Flesh is also set to reach the Shudder streaming service in January of 2024.

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.

Paoli and Crampton worked with director Stuart Gordon on the Lovecraft adaptations mentioned above. Gordon passed away in 2020, and they’re paying tribute to him by bringing the world Suitable Flesh. I can’t wait to check it out.
