Movie Info

This awful horror film, the directing debut of actor David Keith, is the second major adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's The Colour Out of Space, first brought to the screen in Daniel Haller's Die, Monster, Die. Wil Wheaton stars as Zack, eternal whipping-boy of a rural farm family headed by his religious fanatic stepfather Nathan (Claude Akins). A large meteor comes zipping through the clouds and crashes in the yard, where local scientist Carl Willis (John Schneider) cracks it open to leak slime

Audience Reviews for The Curse (The Farm)

This sci-fi horror film adapting H.P. Lovecraft's short story "The Colour Out of Space" freaked me out and it's pretty creepy. There were parts where you could tell it was fake, then other times things looked real.
Good performances by most of the cast. Paces moves along. Some nice shots of the Tennessee landscape. Good make-up and gross out effects.
Director David Keith loosely not only vividly evokes a thick and pungent down-home hillbilly atmosphere, but also does an expert job of creating and sustaining a spooky and unnerving tone.

This movie starts out kind of boring, but it gets better as it goes on. It's especially exciting at the climax. It might seem weird or confusing at times, but it's pretty good in the end.
