Nicolas Cage’s Mandy follow-up both in being a neon-hued, nostalgically bonkers horror pastiche and a product of oddball-genre production company SpectreVision, Color Out of Space is certainly apt to be something. And now we have our first look at what it may be with the film’s trailer.
Director Richard Stanley’s first narrative feature since getting booted off 1996’s The Island of Dr. Moreau, the film is based on a H.P. Lovecraft tale, taking the “wealthy New Yorkers move to the country for a real scare” setup of Beetlejuice to an even weirder place.
Our TV-VCR back-end helper (not a euphemism) saw the film at Sitges and called it a fun ’80s-style flick with a great Cage performance and some fantastic practical body-horror hurt by some cheaper CGI work. So consider us pumped for whatever bat-shit stuff is to come when this hits theaters January 24.
