SUITABLE FLESH MOVIE REVIEW
Who among us hasn’t had the dream of swapping bodies with someone? In fact, we’re all friends here. Let’s be honest with each other. Who among us hasn’t had at least one dream where we specifically swap bodies with Heather Graham? No? Only Jordan, Lewayne, and T.C. are willing to admit that? Fine, fine, we’ll leave that for our therapists to work out. Which, as another fantasy, we’ve all imagined our psychologist as Heather Graham too, right? Still no from all of you? Huh, weird. Not exactly Lovecraftian weird. But still weird. Well, as a stroke of luck, the Screener Squad has been given the perfect movie for all those glorious fantasies. Suitable Flesh is a psychological sexual thriller written by Dennis Paoli, who wrote Reanimator back in 1985, and directed by Joe Lynch. Based on the 1937 H. P. Lovecraft short story “The Thing on the Doorstep”, it stars Heather Graham as Dr. Elizabeth Derby, a psychologist who has recently seen a client, Asa (Judah Lewis of The Babysitter). Liz fears that Asa’s Dissociative Identity Disorder is actually supernatural, in what could be referred to in horror terms as a Charles Lee Ray disorder. What unfolds is a sexual thriller with plenty of blood spilled and skin revealed, exactly what the Squad was hoping for.

Jordan Cobb (Screener Squad)
Born with a comic book in one hand, a camera in the other, and in front of the television as WrestleMania played out, Jordan Worth Cobb was thus birthed into this crazy world. A Digital Filmmaking major from the University of Central Arkansas, Jordan has done it all in film from directing, writing, editing, and producing in addition to skills involved in film and TV criticism, journalism, and years of podcasting experience. On any given day, her ADHD riddled brain bounces focus from film to pro wrestling to TV to superheroes to noir to video games to espionage and yes, even to sports. She played little league you know. For more of this eccentric nerd, you can follow her on Twitter here and read her original writings on Deepest Corners of My Notebook.
Lewayne White (Screener Squad)
Lewayne’s earliest memories are of watching movies and reading comics, which instilled in him a sense of wonder, a vivid imagination, and unrealistic expectations. It also means he spends a lot of time watching movies, writing scripts for them, and trying to get them made. He lives in the middle of middle America after landing there as a child, and has remained there mainly because he hates packing.
