∑Online Now Color Out of Space Watch Movie



6,5 of 10. When an iridescent meteorite plummets from outer space and into the property and foundations of a remote New England estate, a malignant force begins to insidiously permeate the lives of an unassuming family. The effects are gradual - time begins to dilate, nature assumes an otherworldly hue - and all things bright and beautiful eventually mutate and corrupt under its influence. So proceeds this eerie adaptation of the short story by H.P. Lovecraft, one of horror's most haunting, here presented by the enigmatic South African filmmaker Richard Stanley. Returning to Midnight Madness 29 years after his hypnotic killer-robot fandango Hardware first premiered in the section, Stanley summons his uniquely hallucinogenic sensibilities to envelope his endearing characters in surreal, incremental dread. At first, their domestic bliss is quietly fraught with an undercurrent of unnerving tension, before eventually boiling over into delirious, acid-fueled terror. The patriarch of this doomed brood is none other than Nicolas Cage, continuing his recent renaissance as a midnight-movie staple with an increasingly unhinged performance that reliably ricochets among every technique in the Stanislavski playbook. The rest of the ensemble, which includes Joely Richardson and Tommy Chong, play effective foils to Cage's delirium, but the real star of the show is the alien entity itself. This all-consuming, dispassionate menace manifests itself in a series of grotesque, body-horror, and psychedelic spectacles, worthy of its ineffable literary origins. . genre=Horror. writers=H.P.

This movie is 100% the movie they wanted to make.
I have read some Lovecraft but this was not one of the ones I have read.
From the trailer I thought it would be similar to the 2000 Japanese horror film Uzumaki where people are menaced by the geometric concept of spirals. I thought people in this movie would be menaced by the color Pink. And they more or less are, but it is just so much more. So much more.
The cast does a really great job the whole time.
Tommy Chong is very Tommy Chong, and yet adds levels to it not seen in That 70's Show or the Cheech and Chong movies. I have met people like this character.
Nicolas Cage is a very Nicolas Cage father. The mother, the kids and the Water Surveyor are all great.
They keep calling the young son Jack Jack. So thinking about the Incredible superhero baby is a happy thought to hold on to in a reality warping horror movie.
The colors and effects are all spot on and great. Other reviews I have seen have likened it to a 1982 movie by John Carpenter and that comparison is apt.
The January 22nd 2020 screening I went to included a video at the end from the Hollywood Premiere where Oswald Patton spoke with Nicolas Cage and Richard Stanley about the movie and Stanley said this was the first of a series of Lovecraft films from him. The next being The Dunwich Horror, which is great news. This movie was amazing and I am super down for more.

No need to see this now. Thanks to the editor of this trailer. Cool, but the visual affects make it feel just like a cgi fest. Also- is anyone getting extreme Berzerk vibes. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. I need season 2. Just let yourself enjoy it. Starts slow, introducing the cast and setting the scene. Is there something about this region that attracts weird stuff like you would find in a pulp science-fantasy-horror-fiction story? Soon something bizarre and unbelievable occurs, and the horror and distortion of ordinary reality begins relentlessly creeping in. Never mind if it does not make sense in places. Something from the unnamable beyond will do what ever it does, and there is no escaping the influence of. we know not what.
I wondered as a kid what would happen if a droll wit like James Whale adapted this popular story. It would be hard to get closer than this mix of humor and horror. Sometimes you have to let really crazy situations be funny, if just for a moment. Toward the end it is just good Lovecraftian bizarreness and pretty fun. Tommy Chong, all-purpose entertainer, delivers strange dialog straight. from the story to very good effect as things start to come apart. The entire cast is good. I might have shot this in black and white but the colors we are actually seeing could pass for refracted and reflected elements of something else. No problem.
This movie pays homage to a singular literary talent who found movies a waste of time, and does it well. Clearly made with love.

I was at Lovecraft's grave in Providence just last week, and didn't know this movie was out. It's like I willed it into existence. If it played in my local theater in five minutes, I'd be on my way right now. I had never realized Sam Neill was so involved in cosmic horror! D As for Peter Weir, his Picnic at Hanging Rock also pretty much dwells in metaphysical horror. The upside down. One half is more like 2019 and the other half is far from being top action movie. Nice, I approve of any Lovecraft sci fi starring Nicolas Cage. Looks awesome.

What about Phantoms? It's one of my favorites.
