As we’ve been reporting, Full Moon Features is furthering the Miskatonic U series (previous films include From Beyond, Re-Animator, Lurking Fear) with a new, two-part feature film, The Resonator: Miskatonic U, inspired by both the works of legendary fiction writer H.P. Lovecraft and beloved genre director Stuart Gordon.
Today, we’re thrilled to share the film’s trailer and final poster! Have a look-see below and read more about The Resonator: Miskatonic U below.
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 follows six gifted students as they navigate life after one of them, Crawford Tillinghast, 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.

Starring acclaimed and internationally beloved cult film actors Michael Pare (Eddie And The Cruisers, The Philadelphia Experiment, Streets Of Fire), Amanda Wyss (A Nightmare On Elm Street, Fast Times At Ridgemont High, Dexter, Charmed) and Jeffrey Byron (Metalstorm, Dungeon Master), and created by horror powerhouse, Charles Band, and writer-director William Butler (Madhouse, Furnace And Demonic Toys 2), the film went into production in Los Angeles in early January. It promises to feature plenty of the sort of gooey practical special make-up effects, along with cameos and performances from many of the original cast members that have long been associated with Gordon and the films from Band’s Empire Pictures universe.
