We pay a set visit to The Resonator: Miskatonic U, as part of the H.P. Lovecraft inspired series that follows in the foot sets of From Beyond, Re-Animator and Lurking Fear produced by Charles Band and directed by Billy Buttler.
The Resonator: Miskatonic U releases this Friday, February 26, 2021 and along with our friends at Dread Central, we had the pleasure of experiencing a set visit.
First, let’s start with the films Synopsis:
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.
Like everything else these days, everyone was Covid compliant, Josh Millican of Dread Central and myself were both tested prior to our set visits, we both had our temperatures taken upon arrival and kept social distance from the cast and crew (except for the photo above with legendary producer Charles Band).
We got to watch William “Billy” Butler, bring what he wrote to life from the director’s chair as he had Pepto Bismol ready at the wait for any stressful situations that might arise on set.

I wish I could lie and say I didn’t fanboy out for Michael Paré, but I to mention that I watched Eddie and The Cruisers recently. I’m pretty sure he hates constantly hearing that by now, but it is still a classic and being on set with him and the entire cast of The Resonator: Miskatonic U made for an incredible time.
The cast also includes Amanda Wyss, Amanda Jones, Alex Keener, Christina Hélène Braa, Austin Woods and Dan Oliver who bring everything to life in what will be sure to be yet another cult classic produced by Charles Band.

R.C. began his journalism career in 1996 as a college freshman. He has been published everywhere from Pro Wrestling Illustrated to the Oakland Tribune and Orange County Register. His vision for FanboyNation was to return a sense of traditional journalism to a world full of sensationalism and geek rage. If you hadn't noticed, R.C. really hates taking selfies, but loves comics, animation, films and MMA.
