Lovecraft story, this will mark the film’s first screening in America! Visit the Two Boots site for more details HERE! And purchase tickets for Sunday night’s screening HERE!
From the imagination of H.P. Lovecraft and the vision of director Ivan Zuccon comes a new tale of cinematic terror. Based on the classic story "The Colour Out of Space", COLOUR FROM THE DARK is the follow-up to Ivan’s forthcoming film, NYMPHA.
The 1940’s, and World War II is raging. Pietro (Michael Segal) and Lucia (Debbie Rochon) live on an isolated farm with Alice, Lucia’s younger sister (Marysia Kay). Alice is a 15 year old who suffers from severe mental problems. Poor farmers, they live tilling the soil. Pietro is a good worker and a strong man who, unlike his three brothers, is not at war because of a deformed knee.
Lucia is a beautiful and reserved woman dedicated to her family. Their life is peaceful and good, in spite of the hard work. One day, while drawing water from the well, Pietro and Alice produce a casual and apparently insignificant incident, which frees something from Earth’s womb. A strange and alien colour flashes underwater, at the well’s bottom, then disappears. From that moment on, inexplicable events start happening all around the farm, and by night the surrounding vegetation glitters with a sinister glow.
The colour soon takes hold of the whole farm, and dwelling inside Pietro and his family’s minds, it brings them into its sick world of pain, blood and death…
