Die Farbe (The Colour) is a new German adaptation of “The Color Out of Space” by director Huan Vu. We saw it and thought it was the kind of Lovecraft movie that would appeal to our crowd. So, we worked with the filmmakers to produce a DVD of the movie for the US market which we’re distributing. Check out the trailer below.
A young American goes on a quest to find his missing father. He returns to Germany where his father was stationed at the end of WWII. He slowly uncovers the strange cirucumstance of how a meteor crash in a remote German valley made an alien impact that affects his family still today.
Die Farbe is in German – with some scenes in English – and the film is subtitled in English. It’s shot in highly atmospheric black and white and, while it does expand on the story, on the whole it’s quite faithful to Lovecraft.
