It should have been epic
11 September 2019 | by shakespeherian_ragSee all my reviews

You know the short story, Color Out of Space? Telling a tale of a place where things are beautiful and wondrous on the outside, but full of death and ash on the inside?

That is this film.

On paper it has everything you want in crazy HP Lovecraft adaptation:

Nicolas Cage channeling his signature "German Expressionist" style, think Vampire's Kiss Nicolas Cage, check

Richard Stanley directing, check

An appearance from Tommy Chong, check

Practical effects channeling the best 80s Cronenberg and Carpenter, check

Perfect psychedelic movie poster art, check

Alpacas, alpacas, alpacas, check, check and check!

As I write these aspects of the film I am remembering the crazy excitement I had going into the screening at TIFF's Midnight Madness. It should have been epic! Either an epic success or an epic failure, but still epic.

And yet, with all these wonderful ingredients, the chemistry does not work. It was meh. Painfully dull and scattered, like a student film with a big budget. Go ahead and watch it but keep very low expectations, you might enjoy it if you do.
