Dennis Paoli guest of honor at HPLFF Mobile, AL, November 3-5
Dennis Paoli, the screenwriter of landmark films based on the works of H. P. Lovecraft like Re-Animator, From Beyond, and Castle Freak, as well as horror classics like Ghoulies 2 and Body Snatchers, is the Guest of Honor at the inaugural H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival in Mobile, AL, November 3-5th, where he'll present his newest film Suitable Flesh, based on H. P. Lovecraft's "The Thing on The Doorstep." In the wake of the Writer's Guild of America union strike, which saw new union contracts finally successfully negotiated after a heroic 148 days on the picket line, we're thrilled to host the writer of all of our favorite movies. Dennis worked hand in hand with director Stuart Gordon to bring Lovecraftian visions to life, and audience members who get to see Suitable Flesh will have serious resonator flashbacks to these classic works, largely due to Dennis's script, as well as the loving work of director Joe Lynch and producers Barbara Crampton (Dr. Catherine McMichaels in From Beyond) and Brian Yuzna (the Re-Animator series). This film is a serious homage to the erotic horror that many of us young Lovecraft fans in the 80s cut our teeth on.
The H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival will take place November 3-5 at the Holiday Inn in Mobile's historic downtown, with literary events at the Haunted Book Shop and evening film showcases at the Saenger Theatre.
