RLJE Films, Shudder Releasing Joe Lynch’s H.P. Lovecraft Movie ‘Suitable Flesh’ This Year

Suitable Flesh

RLJE Films and the horror streaming platform Shudder are teaming up to release Joe Lynch’s new horror ‘Suitable Flesh’ which is based on H.P. Lovecraft’s ‘The Things on the Doorstep’ and will be making it’s premier as part of this month’s Tribeca Film Festival.

The film will be featured alongside the works of other mainstream and indie filmmakers as part of the festival’s “Escape from Tribeca” lineup. RLJE Films and Shudder have acquired the film ahead of Tribeca’s event, according to Deadline.

Additionally, the film will be heading to theaters and on VOD platforms, such as PPV streaming platforms, later this year with a debut on Shudder’s streaming platform to follow.

“The cast of Suitable Flesh led by Heather Graham brings layered, complex performances to this new take on Lovecraft,” RLJE Films’ Chief Acquisitions Officer, Mark Ward said. “We are thrilled to premiere this film at Tribeca especially with longtime collaborators, actor/producer Barbara Crampton and director Joe Lynch.”

“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” Ward said in an official statement. “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!”

According to the official synopsis: “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.”

“We’ve been so fortunate to work with top talent both behind and in front of the camera on our recent films” Crampton said of the film in an official statement. “At Amp it’s about developing not only memorable, thought-provoking material for an audience, but also fresh and unusual enough to attract the very best creative collaborators. I was ecstatic when first the formidable Joe Lynch, then Heather Graham signed on – her natural charm is always in evidence, but we get to see a different untapped side of her abilities here. I’ve been thrilled to be invited to join seasoned pros at Amp, and we are only getting started.”

Heather Graham, Judah Lewis, Bruce Davison, Johnathon Schaech, and Jonah Ray also star.
