Color Out of Space

New York Times Critics' Pick
110 mins.
Directed by Richard Stanley

After a meteorite lands in the front yard of their farm, Nathan Gardner (Nicolas Cage) and his family find themselves battling a mutant extraterrestrial organism as it infects their minds and bodies, transforming their quiet rural life into a living nightmare.

Based on the classic H.P. Lovecraft short story and marking the return of legendary cult director Richard Stanley (HARDWARE), COLOR OUT OF SPACE is “gorgeous, vibrant and terrifying” (Jonathan Barkan, Dread Central).

"COLOR OUT OF SPACE has more going on than just the squishy satisfactions of its old-school creature effects (reminiscent of Rob Bottin’s ingenious work on John Carpenter’s THE THING). Using shape-shifting as a messy metaphor for sickness and childhood trauma, Stanley and Cage leap so far over the psychological top that they never come back to earth." Jeannette Catsoulis.
