The trailer for the new film PICKMAN’S MODEL, a new independent film based on the H.P. Lovecraft short story has been posted on YouTube. The film begins with a simple invitation to view Pickman’s work at his isolated studio in Boston’s North End. And ends with the apprehension that what lurks in the foreground of Pickman’s work is far more sinister than the art itself.
“Pickman’s Model” is directed by Gary Fierro. Justin Tacchi adapted the screenplay from the classic H.P. Lovecraft story. Makeup/FX created by Norman Bryn (Saturday Night Live, Kreating Karloff). It will star Conor Timmis (Kreating Karloff) as “Richard Upton Pickman”, Jesse Murphy (Banshee!!!) as “Thurber”, and Derek Meinecke as “Eliot”.
