After a meteorite lands in their front yard, Nathan Gardner and his family find themselves battling an extraterrestrial organism as it infects their minds and bodies, and turns their lives into a living nightmare. Color out of Space is an adaptation of a cosmic horror story by HP Lovecraft. Nicolas Cage shines as a goof dad who grows progressively more insane. Lovecraft has been notoriously hard to adapt to film but Color Out of Space manages to capture what’s uniquely terrifying about Lovecraftian horror while making it accessible to a contemporary audience.
Color Out of Space is now streaming on Shudder.
