The cinematographic adaptation of the universe of H. P. Lovecraft expands a little more with a new film adaptation of one of his short stories. Following the trails that director Stuart Gordon and actors Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton opened with the 1980s classics From Beyond (1986) and Re-Animator (1985), now it comes The Resonator: Miskatonic U (2021). Although this time the tone is way less horror and more fantasy, but still keeping some fun blood splattery moments.
Set in the fictional college campus Miskatonic University in Arkham, Massachusetts where all sorts of fantastic and unworldly events have been known to unfold in Lovecraft lore, The Resonator: Miskatonic U (2021) follows six gifted students as they navigate life after one of them, Crawford Tillinghast, builds a machine known as theResonator. The machine allows one to experience multiple dimensions while navigating the unsavory beasts that dwell within them. But things get complicated when Tillinghast realizes that the prototype of his creation has not only released murderous and deadly creatures into his world but also has affected his own reality.
The Resonator: Miskatonic U (2021) has been produced, written, and directed by William Butler, an experienced filmmaker who has also been special effects artist in titles like From Beyond (1986), Ghoulies II (1987), Creepozoids (1987), Army of Darkness (1992), Demolition Man (1993), or From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) until moving in the last decades to the position of writer and director, being responsible for films like Madhouse (2004), Furnace (2007), or Dead Voices (2020).
Amanda Wyss, Michael Paré, Jeffrey Byron, Austin Woods, Dane Oliver, Amanda Jones, Christina Hélène Braa, Thomas Shevela, Alex Keener, Brynn Sicard, Josh Cole, and Hannah Hueston form the main cast.
The Resonator: Miskatonic U (2021) will be premiering on February 26th, 2021, exclusively on the Full Moon Features channel and app. Here you can watch its official trailer.
