Christopher Webster [Celluloid 09.24.15] scifi horror cult thriller



Elijah Wood's production company SpectreVision just announced they will produce Richard Stanley’s new film, Color Out of Space, an adaptation the H.P. Lovecraft tale and Stanley's first official film since 1992's Dust Devil.

Perhaps most famous for his breakout science fiction horror hybrid, Hardware, Stanley was

the subject of the recent documentary Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley's The Island of Doctor Moreau (Review).


SpectreVision recently released the horror comedy Cooties and were behind one of the year's most acclaimed films A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.


“H.P. Lovecraft is the undisputed father of literary horror, and yet, bafflingly, there has yet to be a cinematic treatment that captures the dark beauty of the man’s oeuvre,” said SpectreVision cofounder Daniel Noah, in a statement. “Richard Stanley’s note perfect adaptation of Color Out of Space represents an epiphany for me — as it no doubt will be for legions of Lovecraft devotees around the world.”


Casting is currently underway on Color Out of Space and the plan is for the project to start shooting in early 2016.


More as it comes, Folks!

Obviously Mr. Noah's never seen the H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society's Call of Cthulhu. Still, here's hoping the film turns out well.

I finally got around to watching Hardware. Wow... it's *dreadful* in every way other than inspiring actual dread. I hope Stanley has learned a lot since the 90's.
