Reanimators, Elder Gods, and Flesh – oh my! Alumni Joe Lynch returns to Beyond Fest with this straight-from-the-heart love letter to Stuart Gordon by lovingly expanding the Lovecraft Universe. Heather Graham plays Elisabeth Derby, a successful psychiatrist with a beautiful family life who finds herself on the wrong side of the bars when she inexplicably murders a patient. Trying to piece together what happened with the help of her doctor, played by the legendary Barbara Crampton, the duo will soon discover an esoteric world of body-swapping and evil that is just too crazy to contain. Body horror, erotic thrillers, and cosmic terror collide in an unholy trinity with Lynch firing on all cylinders. This is one big screen experience that you’ll want to see with a wicked crowd.
