The film is directed by Richard Stanley (Hardware, Dust Devil) who will make his return to the Midnight Madness lineup after 29 years. He co-wrote the screenplay with Scarlett Amaris (The Theatre Bizarre).

“We’re beyond excited to be reteaming with SpectreVision and XYZ Films for COLOR OUT OF SPACE,” said Mark Ward, Chief Acquisitions Officer for RLJE Films. “Nicolas Cage unleashes another memorable performance – an incredible follow up off the heels of MANDY. 

COLOR OUT OF SPACE is based on the short story by H.P. Lovecraft.  After a meteorite lands in the front yard of their farmstead, Nathan Gardner (Nicolas Cage) and his family find themselves battling a mutant extraterrestrial organism as it infects their minds and bodies, transforming their quiet rural life into a technicolor nightmare.
