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
If you enjoy the works of H.P. Lovecraft, then "The Color from the Dark", which is heavily influenced by "The Color Out of Space", should suit you well enough. I am a big fan of Lovecraft's writing and all things Lovecraftian.
I happened to come across this 2008 movie by sheer random luck and had to watch it of course. And the movie surprised me quite nicely, in a most positive manner, luckily.
This is not a movie with a budget amount that will cause you to faint. But director Ivan Zuccon managed to make due with an estimated budget of $100.000. And it was quite well put to use where it really mattered and counted. The effects were actually quite good.
It is a movie with a small ensemble of cast members, so there was a lot of pressure on those actors and actresses. And for most parts they did perform quite well.
This is an atmospheric horror movie that uses dread and impeding doom, much akin to what Lovecraft did himself. So thumbs up to the director for that accomplishment.
"Color from the Dark" is well worth watching if you enjoy a solid story-driven horror movie, and of course if you are a fan of Lovecraft.
