Lovecraft’s “Color Out of Space” Still Happening

Three years ago came word that SpectreVision, an indie horror production company, planned to produce a film adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s famed short story “The Color Out of Space”.

Set in the wild hills west of Arkham in Massachusetts, the story follows a narrator who pieces together the story of a ‘blasted heath’, an area where many years ago a meteorite crashed.

As a result, the life force of anything living nearby is drained. Yet at the same time flora grows huge and strange, whilst animals are deformed and humans either go insane or die.

At the time Richard Stanley, who hadn’t helmed a film since the disastrous production that was 1996’s “The Island of Dr. Moreau,” was slated to direct and pen the screenplay with plans to shoot in early 2016. That didn’t happen and now, in an interview this week with Birth.Movies.Death, SpectreVision’s co-founder Josh C. Waller says they are still moving forward with it:

“It’s moving along. We announced that we were going to be doing it, what, three years ago? Let’s just say that we’re getting a lot closer. Significantly closer. Like, it’s coming up, so I will be busy with Richard on set with that sometime in the near future.”

Lovecraft’s famed novellas and short stories have included the likes of “At the Mountains of Madness,” “Shadow over Innsmouth,” “The Whisperer in Darkness” and “The Call of Cthulhu” with his works going on to heavily influence writers and directors like John Carpenter, Guillermo del Toro, Stephen King and Alan Moore.
