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

Colour From The Dark scores!!!!
1 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From the first time I had seen this movie, I was awaiting it's release to DVD. As someone who loves the classic style of filming for horror movies, Colour From The Dark scores a direct hit. The movie moves at a great pace and has some nice twists that keep you glued in your seat. Debbie Rochon really reached out in this role and captured it perfectly of how it was to be played. She is an extremely talented actress and it shows in this movie. Colour is not the atypical horror film, where you're dealing with serial killers, cheap monsters, etc...Colour doesn't fit in with the typical low-budget movies, or even with the big Hollywood movies that fall short. Colour really knocks it out of the park. Dealing with the supernatural, Director Zuccon weaves it all very well. The entire cast was strong and put out excellent performances. I also give a lot of kudos to the set director, finding great locations to shoot. Fantastic.

Once again, Debbie Rochon is at her best. If you like classically style horror movies, you will love this. See for yourself. I highly recommend this movie and am glad to have it on my shelf.
