On this week’s annotated deep dive, The Cultists present Richard Stanley’s Color Out of Space (2019). The cult director of Hardware (1990) and Dust Devil (1992) returns to the big screen after a decades-long hiatus with this H.P. Lovecraft adaptation about a color so unfathomable that it can’t help but destroy everything its light touches. Lovecraft’s writings—packed full of thick lurking atmospheres and cosmic “unseeable” horrors—are notoriously impossible to translate into film. Will Richard Stanley succeed where so many before him have failed? And can you really make a horror movie about the insidious, reality-defying nature of the color pink? London and Benji set forth to find out, along the way discussing how COoS compares to its short story source material, as well as comparing it to the lineage of COoS adaptations that have come before. Other topics include: John Dee and Enochian magic, The “Simon” Necronomicon, Alpaca farming, and why choosing Magenta as the film’s stand-in alien hue is actually really very cool. Episode Safeword: “monochromatic”
