Christopher Webster [Celluloid 02.27.09] movie trailer news horror

I'd heard of this production of Lovecraft's Colour from the Dark before but only watched the trailer for the first time this morning. I was expecting the usual low budget adaptation you always seem to get with films based on Lovecraft's work and essentially that's what I got; except director Ivan Zuccon has given us so much more. The trailer is not only well put together, but features a bevy of impressive and innovative FX shots and filming techniques. The one at the end of the trailer where a hallway expands is particularly chilling.

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.

The use of black and white and colour is also interesting. Check it out after the break.
