Color Me Thrilled
Updated: Jul 4, 2020
Big, bold, gorgeous, and very weird, Richard Stanley has returned to filmmaking with an outstanding new movie, The Color Out of Space. Based on an old H.P. Lovecraft story, Space is about a family unit living out in the woods up in the northeast whose fairly ordinary lives get interrupted by the arrival of a strange meteor that crashes near their house and next to a well on their property. What happens next is a gradual, terrifying unfolding of spreading cosmic horror, as the family is subsumed by whatever has infected the earth and, most importantly, the water.
