SYNOPSIS
COLOR OUT OF SPACE is a story of cosmic terror about The Gardners, a family who moves to a remote farmstead in rural New England to escape the hustle of the 21st century. They are busy adapting to their new life when a meteorite crashes into their front yard. The mysterious aerolite seems to melt into the earth, infecting both the land and the properties of space-time with a strange, otherworldly color. To their horror, the Gardner family discover that this alien force is gradually mutating every life form that it touches…including them.

"Full-bore, glorious B-movie Cage: Cranked up to 11, spattered with gore and bellowing about alpacas." New York Post

"It's disorderly fun that sports a directorial personality distinct enough to make one grateful for Stanley's return." Variety
