Arkham Sanitarium

About the film:
Arkham Sanitarium is an anthology of three short stories faithfully adapted from the works of H.P. Lovecraft – each of the three stories is set in 1930’s New England (specifically Providence, Rhode Island and the fictional town of Arkham, Massachusetts). The stories are connected by an original ‘wraparound’ story. In this story – set in the 1950’s – Alice Crow investigates the strange stories surrounding the infamous Arkham Sanitarium.

The Haunter of the Dark
Robert Blake, author and artist returns to Providence to research a shadowy cult for his new book – against the warnings of his friend Ambrose Dexter he tracks down the old church where the cult performed their dark rituals – in the dusty, decrepit ruins he finds an ancient device that summons a monstrous creature intent on destroying him.

The Shunned House
Phillip Whipple, a Miskatonic University medical student returns to Providence to help his uncle Elihu move house. Phillip finds his uncle’s notes on ‘The Shunned House’ – an old, crumbling place with a bad reputation. Phillip was trapped there once as a child and saw something he couldn’t explain so with his uncle’s assistance, the pair seek to uncover why an alarming number of people have died there.

The Thing on the Doorstep
Edward Derby, a poet and fantasist, falls for Asenath, a cold but hypnotically beautiful student at Miskatonic University – the pair wed shortly after despite Edward’s close friend, Daniel Upton having concerns about the marriage. Daniel’s worries are well-founded – Asenath is the daughter of Ephraim Waite – an old man rumoured to be a practitioner of black magic before his recent death.

  1. Looks VERY interesting indeed. I”ve as yet to see THE THING ON THE DOORSTEP realized as fully as the story promises. So I wish you best of luck in the production.

  5. Hi- I’m just curious what the status is on this film, since it’s been over a year now since the site was last updated!
    I really hope the film is still alive and well in post-production: I had eagerly been watching the progress on this site for some time, looking forward to seeing the finished movie, and it’s a bit discouraging that so much time has passed with no word.

    The film looks absolutely amazing: if the material released so far is an accurate indicator, it looks like this could be the best Lovecraft movie since Dan O’Bannon’s The Resurrected in 1992.

    I wish you the best of luck in completing what I can tell has been an extremely challenging passion project. I, and other Lovecraft fans, can’t wait to see it!
