Barbara Crampton and Graham Skipper can be spotted in a quick clip from Suitable Flesh featured in a promo for the Tribeca festival
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 have been made before: Re-Animator, From Beyond, Castle Freak, Dagon, Masters of Horror : Dreams in the Witch-House – as well as producer Barbara Crampton (Castle Freak) and the new Lovecraft adaption SuitableFlesh. Crampton will also be acting in the film which will premiere at the Tribeca Festival in June… and a short video promo for the festival shows a glimpse of Crampton as Suitable Fesh! You can check it out in the Twitter embed 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 a psychiatrist who becomes obsessed with a young client with multiple personalities.Bruce Davison (X-Men
), Johnathon Schaech (That Thing You Do!), and Graham Skipper (The Mind’s Eye) are also in the cast. Skipper appears alongside Crampton in the very short clip from Suitable Flesh that’s featured in the Tribeca promo.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. Crampton, Vice President of Production and Development for Amp, is responsible for worldwide sales. Amp aims to create material that is not only memorable and thought-provoking for audiences, but also unique and fresh enough to attract the best creative collaborators. I was thrilled to be invited to join seasoned pros at Amp, and we are only getting started. I’ve been thrilled to be invited to join seasoned pros at Amp, and we are only getting started.“Lynch added: “
When I read Dennis Paoli’s adaptation of the story, I felt like there was a fantastic opportunity to update and subvert Lovecraft’s often old-fashioned sensibilities in a way that felt modern, relevant and even dangerous, with a pinch of 90’s neo-noir and a dash of eroticism to spice up the stew. Working with Amp and such a fantastic cast – including Heather, Judah, Barbara, Bruce and Johnathon – we’re so excited that this sexy, funny, scary film isn’t just a modernized love letter to Lovecraft, but the kind of provocatively entertaining “sin-ema” I believe audiences are salivating for!“Re-Animator, From Beyond, Castle Freak, Dagon,
and Masters of Horror: Dreams in the Witch-House were directed by Stuart Gordon, who passed away in 2020. It’s great to see Crampton and Yuzna continue the Lovecraft series that Stuart Gordon started. I actually find it to be a bit heartwarming.
