‘Suitable Flesh’ Red Band Trailer: Heather Graham Stars In Joe Lynch’s Gory, Erotic Lovecraft Horror

There are few horror writers who capture the macabre, the erotic, the cosmic, the supernatural, and the just plain weird as H.P. Lovecraft, which is also why so few adaptations of his work can measure up. But if there’s one filmmaker that I’d trust to knock it out of the park, it’s Joe Lynch, who has never been shy about trying new things and pushing the limits. And it looks like he’s doing just that with Suitable Flesh, a sexy, unflinching horror that has burned it up on the festival circuit and is finally being released next month.

Starring Heather Graham, the film centers on a well-meaning psychiatrist who becomes obsessed with helping a patient with extreme personality disorder. However, her life takes a nightmarish turn involving the occult, supernatural forces, an ancient curse, and murder. The film is based on H.P. Lovecraft’s short story The Thing On The Doorstep.

This looks like the kind of horny, brutal no-holds-barred body horror that my friends and I would be plucking off the VHS store shelves. I’d expect no less from Lynch, director of films such as Wrong Turn 2, Mayhem, and a personal favorite, Everly. He’s also one of the hosts of the long-running Movie Crypt podcast.

Also starring Judah Lewis, Bruce Davison, Johnathon Schaech, and horror icon Barbara Crampton, Suitable Flesh hits theaters on October 27th. Check out the new red band trailer below.
