Colour Out Of Space - the resurrection of Richard Stanley
7 min
Colour Out Of Space is the first feature film that Stanley has made in 20 years, find out what put him into into exile and why it took so long for him to come back in this movie review.

Stanley's mainstream debut as a director was set to be a film adaptation of H.G. Wells’ The Island of Doctor Moreau in 1996.

That experience was enough to take him out of the game for 20 years.

Colour Out Of Space is a modern re-telling on one of HP Lovecraft’s short stories that first appeared in the science fiction magazine Amazing Stories in September 1927.

Richard Stanley and writer Scarlet Amaris have done an excellent job bringing Lovecraft’s story into the modern age. They’ve been loyal to the subject matter but still take enough liberties with the story to make it relevant and fun.
