Color Out of Space

AKA: H. P. Lovecraft's Color Out of Space

Country: USA

Genre: Horror, Sci-Fi



One evening, a small meteorite crashes in the Gardner family's yard, accompanied by a loud explosion and a bright purple light. The purple-glowing orb soon collapses into dust, but not before infecting the local water supply. A city toxicologist warns the locals not to drink the well water, but his advice is ignored. The alien presence soon begins to have an ill effect on both the local wildlife and the Gardner family. The youngest child, Jack (Julian Hilliard) spends hours staring at the well, claiming he is talking to his "imaginary friends", and bright purple flowers begin to grow everywhere. As the days progress, so the Gardner family becomes increasingly unhinged...


  • Based on the 1927 science-fiction short story "The Colour Out of Space" by American author H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937)

If you like horror movies, this is for you. Interesting, somewhat unusual story, with good actors in their role. Definitely worth seeing.
