Survivor Films investigate Arkham Sanitarium...


London based Production Company Survivor Films are aiming to improve on the formula started by Brian Yuzna with Necronomicon: Book of Dead, namely, the Lovecraftian horror anthology! The film, Arkham Sanitarium, will consist of three faithfully adapted shorts based on HPL's The Haunter of the Dark, The Shunned House and The Thing on the Doorstep, each set in 1930's New England. Each segment will be connected by an original 'wraparound' story, set in the 1950's, in which Alice Crow investigates strange stories surrounding the infamous Arkham Sanitarium. Shooting is set to begin in May 2011...

Check out Dave Wood's amazing poster art below, and watch this space for more...

About the film: 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...
