Three previously un-filmed Lovecraft stories are finally to make it to the big screen! “Arkham Sanitarium” will be the first feature film from the London based independent studio Survivor Films. They are about a week away from finishing filming, and a release date of October 2011 is expected. The film will cover 3 of Lovecraft’s tales – “The Haunter of the Dark,” “The Shunned House” and “The Thing on the Doorstep” – held together by the device of Arkham Sanitarium. The victims in these various tragedies are inmates, their tales investigated by a lady reporter whose narrative provides the structure of the film. It’s difficult to say how good this low-budget film will eventually be, but a review of the script from TwitchFilm.com is cautiously optimistic. You can keep up to date with the production blog over at Survivor Film’s blog.
