Full Moon's Newsflash Vol. 123

Band and Butler team for MISKATONIC U: THE RESONATOR!

While the pandemic rages, effectively putting the larger scale, internationally mounted DEADLY TEN film slate on pause, Full Moon will be launching an ambitious slate of smaller pictures to be released in 2021, starting with MISKATONIC U: THE RESONATOR, a new horror film inspired by both the works of legendary fiction writer H.P. Lovecraft and beloved genre director Stuart Gordon.

MISKATONIC U: THE RESONATOR tells the tale of Crawford Tillinghast, who builds a machine known as the Resonator. 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.”

Filmmaker and actor William Butler (MADHOUSE, DEMONIC TOYS 2, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, FRIDAY THE 13th: THE NEW BLOOD) is writing and directing the picture, a tribute to his long history with producer Charles Band and Gordon.

"Since I worked on both RE-ANIMATOR and FROM BEYOND in the 80's, I have nothing but respect and admiration for my friend Stuart and the Charles Band legacy," says Butler.

"While our MISKATONIC U: THE RESONATOR is inspired by that legacy, it would be foolish to try and exactly reproduce Stuart's brilliant style and sense of storytelling, but there will certainly be many nods and homages to his brilliant work. In my entire career I have never been so honored to be one of the team members building what will certainly be Full Moon's newest juggernaut franchise.

The one thing I can promise is lots of blood and gooey rubber monsters. It feels so good to go back to my roots when I first got my start as a slime jockey for Charlie and I am so grateful and honored to be helming this project."

MISKATONIC U: THE RESONATOR will go into production in Los Angeles in early December with more new Full Moon movies to be announced in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
