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.

I knew heading into Color Out of Space that the combo of director Richard Stanley and actor Nicolas Cage would make for some strange business. What I didn’t know was how solid and legit spooky this adaption of H.P. Lovecraft would be! This movie is something else. Sure, we’ve seen this story done before but we’ve never seen it done as well as this. The plot here involves a story about a family trying to deal with some things. One of which being the mother of the house hold having cancer. One day something crashes down on their land and from there it is a roller coaster ride of weird. Whatever it is invades the land, the food, and eventually the people causing all sorts of chaos. We have some creepy stuff, gross stuff, but it all makes for what could be the best thing I’ve seen so far in 2020. Richard Stanley has really outdone himself with this film and I’m happy to see it finally come to life.

Nicolas Cage has been known to do some wild and crazy roles and this is another one of those roles that you’ll know him for after you see it. He goes into some very “Cage-like” places and that really makes the movie become one of the more creative and interesting things I’ve seen in a bit. That doesn’t even cover the visual part of things that go into some very trippy areas and turns the last part of the movie isn’t something to be seen. Color Out of Space is one of those movies that I really hope gets the credit it needs once the year ends and everyone talks about all the good movies this year. It is early to make any statements regarding such but I feel we might be looking at the year’s best right now here with this odd mind-trip of a film.
