The wife of chemist Charles Dexter Ward and a private eye begin to suspect that some very unnatural experiments are being conducted in the old house.The film oozes the kind of other worldly, cosmic menace that the best of Lovecraft's works can do, with creatures that are malformed beyond recognition, surreal images, evil spells, wizards and so much more.--iMdb. The wife of alchemist/director Dan O'Bannon, Diane O'Bannon, brings the Director's Cut to fully put us under a spell.

DIANE O’BANNON met her future husband Dan at USC, while he was in pre-production on Dark Star. Following a years-long, on-again off-again connection, Diane and Dan married in 1986, a union that lasted until his death in 2009.

Diane continues to shepherd unproduced and unpublished Dan O’Bannon works into the wider world. She will present Dan's cut of "The Resurrected" She is currently preparing a publication of Dan’s own version of the Necronomicon, and is in negotiations regarding posthumous production of several of his screenplays. Additional information on these projects and others can be found on the Dan O’Bannon website, and on Dan’s official fan page on Facebook.

Diane lives in Los Angeles with her son Adam
