Full Moon launches 2021 slate with new Lovecraft film
While the pandemic rages, effectively putting the larger scale, internationally mounted DEADLY TEN film slate on pause, Full Moon will be launching an ambitious slate of smaller pictures to be released in 2021, starting with MISKATONIC U: THE RESONATOR, a new horror film inspired by both the works of legendary fiction writer H.P. Lovecraft and beloved genre director Stuart Gordon.
MISKATONIC U: THE RESONATOR tells the tale of Crawford Tillinghast, who builds a machine known as the Resonator. The machine allows one to experience multiple dimensions while navigating the unsavory beasts that dwell within them. But things get complicated when Tillinghast realizes that the prototype of his creation has not only released murderous and deadly creatures into his world, but also has affected his own reality.”
William Butler (MADHOUSE, DEMONIC TOYS 2) will direct. Charles Band will produce.
The film will go into production in Los Angeles in early December. It will feature plenty of the sort of gooey practical special make-up effects that served as the hallmark of Band and Gordon’s collaborations and will sport cameos and performances from many of the original cast members that have long been associated with Gordon and the films from Band’s Empire Pictures universe.
“After working side by side with Stuart on From Beyond and many other subsequent genre productions, it is a complete honor and privilege to be able to bring to life a project that is inspired by his brilliant mind and passion for the work of H.P. Lovecraft,” said Band. “We’re very excited to be embarking on this ambitious and reverent entertainment.”
