Suitable Flesh

If anybody ever tells you to go fuck yourself. You tell them you have.
19 April 2024

A psychiatrist (Heather Graham) starts an affair with a young patient (Judah Lewis) but it soon becomes clear he is stricken with an ancient curse.

An H.P. Lovecraft story brought to the big screen in the style of a 90s erotic thriller. It’s tongue in cheek fun, and while it’s not really my cup of tea some game performances from Heather Graham and Barbara Crampton do make Suitable Flesh pretty entertaining.

I wouldn’t say it’s funny or scary enough to really leave a lasting impression but it does manage to get by on a certain throwback charm.
