Color Out of Space

Color Out of Space

Despite hometown acclaim, problematic Zuckerberg lookalike H.P. Lovecraft was mostly a terrible writer, bogged down by adjectives but still largely unable to actually describe anything. If his stories are to have one use, though, let it be to provide fodder for Nicolas Cage to do his Crazy Nicolas Cage thing. Based on a story from 1927, Color Out of Space is director Richard Stanley’s first film in nearly a quarter century. Set in Massachusetts (but filmed for some reason in Portugal), it’s about a man (Cage) who lives in the woods, raises alpacas, and sees unspeakable terrors once a trippy purplish meteorite crashes on his lawn. The score was written by Canadian saxophonist Colin Stetson and it’s kind of fun on its own.
