Hello friends! Today I present to you our episode [almost] all about “Color Out Of Space.”
You may or may not remember that in Episode 79 we discussed Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau a documentary about the misadventures behind-the-scenes of screenwriter/director Richard Stanley. At the end of the show notes I posted a trailer to a movie Stanley had just made with one of our favorite actors, Nic Cage.
That movie is what today’s episode centers around.
Here’s a disclaimer for you all: When we watched this movie, Dave liked it and said as much when it was over. During today’s show, however, Dave seems to have changed his mind or is just fucking with me because why not.
Be that as it may, we go over this movie and talk about HP Lovecraft’s original short story on which this movie is based, The Colour Out of Space. Follow the link if you’d like to read it yourself [FREE!], which I do recommend doing, especially if you are a fan of the genre.
Tons of spoilers in this one, so if you want to see this movie and don’t want anything ruined for you, put this episode on the back burner until you’ve watched it.Read more
