Studio is RLJ/Image, this may be potentially eligible for a Vudu Insta watch digital copy as was my puppet master 4K movie (not MA). If bought through Walmart that is. Not sure. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Color-.../456103525

RLJ movies have dropped to $7.96 so I'd probably bite at that price.

I had no idea this was based on a story by Lovecraft. Surprised Hollywood hasn't done more with his stories.

I'm coming at it from the other direction, I knew it was a story, but had no idea there was a Nic Cage movie made out of it.

This movie is nuts and Nic Cage is his bat guano insane in it. If you liked Mandy, you'll probably like this one too.

I think the reason why a lot of HP Lovecraft stuff isn't getting turned into movies is because of his views on racism and bigotry. Could you imagine the backlash, in this day and time, of a major studio releasing something of his?

Aside from his personal views of which I wasnt aware, his stuff doesnt translate particularly well. One might think with all the advances in CGI this wouldn't be as much of an issue.

For this particular movie, not a bad price but I also will wait until the price drops further. This screams potential BF deal...

Dang. Would have purchased if Digital was also included. This movie was really out there but I enjoyed it.

Guillermo Del Too tried to, but the story wasn't Hollywood enough.

Almost any time you see a price ending in 96 cents at Amazon, it's a Walmart pricematch, and I know the physical 4K+Bluray has been $12.96 at some Walmarts intermittently. Just like others have said, $12.96 is a bit high, but at $7.96 I'd bite for the physical 4K+Bluray set.

FandangoNow had some 99 cent rental deals on some Nic Cage movies, including this, Mandy and Grand Isle. That's the only reason I have seen it.

I write (sometimes quite detailed) notes for myself after watching each. I'd post it here except I don't think SD has a SPOILER option to hide the text. Suffice it to say that while Color Out of Space had some interesting ideas, a lot of them were never explained nor explored fully. So it had bits and pieces of good ideas and weird stuff. Overall I was disappointed yet again by the never-ending stream of Nic Cage B movies (seems we get 3-5 per year).

Mandy was mostly trash to me but it had a few moments. I had to read the detailed plot synopsis after watching the movie to understand what actually happened because it was not clear and the movie was so dark at times I couldn't see what was going on. In fact, IIRC you had to wait until 85 minutes into the movie before Nic got into gear for revenge. The rest of it was overlong shots of whispered dialog (so soft I had to turn on subtitles), them doing boring stuff, or pervs and psychos doing bad things. I think there was a 1-2 minute single take of him sitting on a toilet drinking alcohol and screaming intermittently (knowing him and how he likes to overact that was probably his favorite scene). I'd be hard pressed to buy Mandy at any price, even $5 at Walmart if I ever saw it, even for the 1 minute Cheddar Goblin spot.

I like Nic Cage just for his screen presence (I won't say his acting ability although he has that ability and chooses not to use it most of the time), but he makes some pretty weird choices. I didn't like Grand Isle much either... it was mediocre/average at best. In a world where there are so many movies made, there's much better stuff out there. The hard part is finding it.
