Based on H.P. Lovecraft‘s The Thing On The Doorstep, Joe Lynch’s (Wrong Turn 2, Mayhem, “Creepshow”) new movie Suitable Flesh world premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival to rave reviews this past June, and it’s now headed our way for the Halloween season.
Suitable Flesh is bringing Lovecraftian madness to theaters and VOD on October 27, 2023, and the film will later be hitting Shudder for exclusive streaming in January 2024.
While you wait, check out the brand new RED BAND TRAILER below, which accurately presents Suitable Flesh as the sexiest, kinkiest Lovecraft adaptation you’ve ever seen.
Lynch tells Bloody Disgusting this afternoon, “When it comes to creating an encapsulated version of a film, especially one that’s a tonal rollercoaster like Suitable Flesh, I don’t envy the task of the trailer producers to find that proper balance to seduce the viewer. But when I saw what the sickos at Sequence accomplished with this trailer, it kind of blew me away. They somehow struck the proper balance of creepy, sexy, campy and never forgot that we’re having fun with all these genres jumping into bed together for a proverbial roll in the hay.”
“Personally, I think this trailer FUCKS,” Lynch continues. “We think it’s the perfect taste of FLESH while it’s still jumping in the “FLESHtival” sack around the world this fall and “spreading” into theaters and VOD Oct 27th! “Lustcraft” Lives.”
Barbara Crampton stars in Suitable Flesh, exec produced by Brian Yuzna (Re-Animator). Screenplay by Dennis Paoli, the screenwriter of Re-Animator and From Beyond!
Both films, of course, were Lovecraft adaptations, and Crampton starred in both. With Paoli, Yuzna, Crampton, and Lynch all involved, this new one is something special for fans.
In Suitable Flesh, “After murdering her young patient, a once-esteemed psychiatrist helplessly watches her life spiral into a nightmarish maelstrom of supernatural hysteria and gruesome deaths, all linked to a seemingly unstoppable ancient curse.” Heather Graham, Judah Lewis, Bruce Davison, Johnathon Schaech, and Jonah Ray also star.
Meagan wrote in her Tribeca review, “The spirit of Stuart Gordon is alive and well in Suitable Flesh. Lynch captures the humorous, oft-sexy tone of Gordon’s ‘80s/’90s Lovecraftian horror output while putting his own stamp on it through keen instincts and modern storytelling.”
