Last night I watched Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau for the first time. Tonight, at the Alamo Drafthouse, I watched Color Out of Space, directed and co-written by Stanley. This movie was produced by Spectrevision, which some of you might recall is also the producer of Panos Cosmatos’s film, Mandy.

I found Color Out of Space to be... interesting. I didn’t love it, nor did I hate it, leaving my overall reaction somewhat middling. In a way, it seemed slightly underdeveloped. Much of the running time felt akin to being on a plane going down the runway at an attention-keeping pace, but ultimately never leaving the ground. While the very end did spike in intensity, I felt like everything leading up to it bordered on a tease of something more interesting or psychologically stirring.

I do recommend giving this movie a chance. I don’t think it requires being seen in the theater for whatever your personal maximum takeaway would be, however. You will get your Cage rage, if you’re hoping for that.
