A story of cosmic terror about The Gardners, a family who moves to a remote farmstead in rural New England to escape the hustle of the 21st century. They are busy adapting to their new life when a meteorite crashes into their front yard. The mysterious aerolite seems to melt into the earth, infecting both the land and the properties of space-time with a strange, otherworldly color. To their horror, the Gardner family discover that this alien force is gradually mutating every life form that it touches...including them.
A meteorite strikes earth, carries with it some powerful extraterrestrial influences and transforms its environment in spectacular and terrifying ways. The worst fears and weaknesses of each person it reaches are manifested in ways peculiar to them.
This HP Lovecraft story includes some of the best, well-crafted CGI I have yet seen. Nicolas Cage stars and performs well in his characteristic unhinged way. Color Out of Space includes a faithful portrayal of whippoorwills, which I hear in Ontario on Gillies Lake and so I vouch for the faithfulness of the depiction. I wish for depth in dialogue and acting. Filmed on location in Portugal. The director and all the actors were present and responded to audience questions at this world premiere at the Toronto international film festival.
