The Colour out of Shape

Jonathan Davies leaves his home in Arkham, Massachusetts
hoping to find his father, lost to him somewhere in Europe
since the end of the Second World War. His search takes him to
an isolated valley in Germany, where his father, who had been
stationed there as an army medic, last was seen. But the valley
and the forests hide a dark secret from the past. Jonathan finds
an old German man living in the area, who not only met his
father, but was also there when there were still people living
in the valley, when the mysterious meteorite fell to earth and
when the strange things first started happening.
The Colour Out of Space is an ambitious German film adaptation
of H.P. Lovecraft’s classic short story published under the same
title. This serious film convincingly captures the dark ambience
of the celebrated author’s original tale. A must see for all
hardened Lovecraft enthusiasts, as well as anyone who likes a
good horror mystery film!
