Storyline

Pietro and Lucia live on an isolated farm with Alice, Lucia's younger sister. Poor farmers, they live tilling the soil. Pietro is a good worker and a strong man who, unlike his three brothers, is not at war because of a deformed knee. Lucia is a beautiful and reserved woman dedicated to her family. Their life is peaceful and good, in spite of the hard work. One day, while drawing water from the well, Pietro and Alice accidentally free something from Earth's womb. A strange and alien color flashes underwater, at the well's bottom, then disappears. From that moment on, inexplicable events start happening all around the farm, and by night the surrounding vegetation glitters with a sinister glow. The color soon takes hold of the whole farm, and dwelling inside Pietro and his family's minds, it brings them into its sick world of pain, blood and death. Written by Ivan Zuccon

Zuccon continues to improve
26 February 2010 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

The third film adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's short story "The Colour Out of Space," this low budget ($100,000) flick from Italy is decent for the money. Set during WWII, it focuses on farmer Pietro (Michael Segal), who lives on the farm with his wife Lucia (Debbie Rochon) and her mute sister Alice (Marysia Kay). One day strange lights emerge from their well and the water it provides turns into some kind of healing elixir. The vegetables grow to massive sizes and Pietro's bad knee that kept him out of the service heals up (bummer). But Lucia starts to slowly go mad and turns into a hideous Linda Blair looking mofo.

Director Ivan Zuccon made some waves with his low budget Lovecraft anthology THE SHUNNED HOUSE (2003) and this continues to deliver on that promise. The film has oodles of style, even if it is shot on high end Beta, which makes it looks kind of like a soap opera. He's still not totally there as a director (he seems to have fallen in love with using digital embellishments like bad looking computer fog), but I still think the guy has plenty of talent and is one to watch. Just ditch the video, son. Also, how can you not love a film where characters named Luigi and Giovanni are played by English and Irish actors?
