Barbara Campton and writer Dennis Paoli are no strangers to HP Lovecraft. They are about to combine powers to make another HP Lovecraft movie. Dennis Paolli worked with the late and great Stuart Gordon on a lot of wonderful Lovecraft work including Re-Animator, Beyond, Castle Freak and other. It just so happens that Crampton starred in many of Paoli and Gordon’s works.
The upcoming untitled film is based on Thing on the doorstep and is said to be an “erotic body-swapping” horror film.
“We have been so fortunate to work with top talent both behind and in front of the camera on our recent films. Crampton said. “At Amp it’s about developing not only memorable, thought-provoking material for an audience, but also fresh and unusual enough to attract the best creative collaborators. I was delighted when first the formidable Joe Lynch and then Heather Graham signed on – her natural charm is always on display, but we get to see another untapped side of her abilities here. I was delighted to be invited to join the seasoned professionals at Amp and we are just getting started.”
The upcoming project stars Heather Graham, Bruce Davison, Johnathon Schaech and Judah Lewis. In the Lovecraft adaptation, a psychiatrist who becomes obsessed with a young client with multiple personalities. Graham is ready to play the lead.
