A teaser trailer has been released for director Joe Lynch’s H.P. Lovecraft adaptation Suitable Flesh, starring Heather Graham

Fangoria got the exclusive first look at a teaser trailer for the upcoming 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)… and that teaser trailer can now be seen in the embed above!

Suitable Flesh just had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival last weekend.

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.

Paoli and Crampton worked with director Stuart Gordon on the Lovecraft adaptations mentioned above. Gordon passed away in 2020, and it’s really nice to see his collaborators continuing to dig into Lovecraft and honoring his memory. I’m hyped for Suitable Flesh and can’t wait to check it out.
