Suitable Flesh premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival on June 11, 2023, and was shown at the Fantasia Film Festival. The movie will be released theatrically and On-Demand (VOD) by RLJE Films on October 27, 2023, and will stream on Shudder soon after.

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

Director Joe Lynch said in a statement, “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. 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!”

Co-star and co-producer Barbara Crampton added, “We’ve been so fortunate to work with top talent both behind and in front of the camera on our recent films. 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.”
