• The folks at Survivor Films have begun shooting H.P. Lovecraft’s Arkham Asylum, an anthology horror film. Follow this link to see stills from the first story featured in the film: “The Thing on the Doorstep.”

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.

• Shock’s UK-based scribe Melanie Light is off working on various productions. Recently, she hit the States to shoot Escape You’ll find an image below along with her first short, Switch.
