    This was an odd duck of a movie. It starts off with a teenage girl in a Wiccan outfit riding back to her house barefoot on horseback. Nicolas Cage plays her whackadoodle father (a new look for him). Finally we have the stoner brother, nagging mom and precocious younger son to round this functional family out. And then an alien meteor hits the front lawn near the drinking well causing the shit to hit the fan, specifically into a color palette that is part Mandy and part Annilhation. And then it all goes completely to hell (in a good way) with a disturbing/gory (ala The Thing) third act. I have to admit this was fun to watch, but if you want to be really creeped out, read the original HP Lovecraft short story.

    An idiosyncratic horror piece. I'm not entirely sold on some of the weirdness of early scenes, that being said its second half is memorable and effective.

    Colour Out of Space was one of the biggest joys that 2019 cinema brought me. I was genuinely thrilled by it from about fifteen minutes in right up until the credits rolled. Not to mention for several days afterwards.

    Richard Stanley hit the scene with the cult gem Hardware and was primed for big things with The Island of Dr Moreau, but sadly Val Kilmer destroyed that dream. I honestly feel Stanley would've knocked The Island of Dr Moreau out of the park. But, like all gifted filmmakers, they tend to find their feet, and that's the case here. Color Out of Space is an incredibly cerebral experience and right up there with some of my favourite films of the year. Nicolas Cage is quite tame early on, but with all solid Cage performances he gets the opportunity to dial it up to 11. This film is utterly insane and with Stanley now demonstrating his ability for the genre, I only hope he can return much sooner. The film won't appeal to everyone, but if you're a fan of the genre, stop reading this review and track it down. 03/03/2020
