PORTUGAL, United States | 111 minutes | 2019

A meteorite falls to Earth near Arkham. Soon, the place is overrun by the shadows. Death stalks the town, madness reigns, and it starts to look like the rest of the world might follow… Richard Stanley (Hardware, Dust Devil) is finally back, adapting H.P. Lovecraft’s most famous story, with none other than Nicolas Cage (reinvented between Mandy and the next Sion Sono film). That’s a sure-fire recipe for cinematic delight. But what does a colour fallen from the sky look like? How will the monstrous creatures inhabiting the Blasted Heath look? And what about the famous Lovecraftian terror that defies description? Come and see for yourself…

In collaboration with Fantasia.

"Calling Color Out of Space weird seems like an affront to weirdness. This movie transcends the weird, dipping into territory that I don’t think they’ve invented words for yet. Watching Cage lose his shit is an absolute blast." Slash Film
"Gorgeous, scary, unhinged. If this movie marks the return of Richard Stanely to narrative filmmaking, it’s one helluva resurrection." Dread Central
