Trailer for Lovecraftian Horror ‘They Remain’

The H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival will host the World Premiere of They Remain 7:00PM on Saturday, October 7th, with an encore screening on Sunday, October 8th.

We now have the official trailer for this highly anticipated film, written and directed by Philip Gelatt (Europa Report) and adapted from Laird Barron’s short story “-30-”, which will be shown first to the festival audience on the 60ft screen of the historic Hollywood Theatre in Portland, OR. Gelatt will be in attendance to walk the red carpet, introduce the film and do Q&A afterward, and will participate in panel discussions throughout the weekend.

Harper and Henderson portray scientists employed by a vast, impersonal corporation to investigate an unspeakable horror that took place at the remote encampment of a mysterious cult. Working and living in a state-of-the-art, high-tech environment that is completely at odds with their surroundings, they spend their days gathering physical evidence, analyzing it, and reporting on their findings.

When Henderson’s character discovers a mysterious artifact of unknown origin, the dynamic between them changes: secrets are kept, sexual tensions arise, and paranoia sets in. Having lost all sense of what is real and what is imagined, all he knows is that the horror they have been sent to uncover now threatens his very survival.

William Jackson Harper and Rebecca Henderson both star.

They Remain will open theatrically across the US in Fall 2017.

    Really happy to see Laird Barron’s work finally getting adapted. Hope to see more in the future. Guy is one heck of a writer, and though he dabbles in the cosmic horror genre that Lovecraft created, his body work is definitely its own thing.

      Laird Barron is easily one of the best horror writers alive today.

    Every time I see “Lovecraft inspired” I get my hopes up only to be disappointed or angry (see The Void)

      What’s your problem with The Void?

      • Papa_spoosh

        Do I need to rewatch the void? I thought the acting and dialogue was such shit… like theres some ” your daddy was a better cop than youll ever be” day-time drama dialogue going on for these very underwritten characters and in the end it felt like they pieced together scenes from their favorite movies. The Thing, very clearly. The Exorcist 3 ( they literally have the robed cult member walking with a knife exactly like in “that scene”), and in the end it was essentially a very left field Hellraiser knock off. I remember thinking it didn’t make a ton of sense towards the end but they had sorta lost me with the dialogue at that point so I might have been half paying attention. Is it wort a rewatch?
