Nicolas Cage Blows Our Cinematic Mind Agin!
Nicolas Cage has been on a wild run of offbeat films lately – and they have been terrific! His latest film is no exception, so this “Cult Movie Monday” celebrates unique cinema that deserves to be supported!
“Color Out Of Space!”
This great new adaptation of an H.P. Lovecraft short science fiction story is a perfect pairing of Actor Nicolas Cage and Director Richard Stanley.
The film is opening this week, so it’s time to support this duo and their unique cinematic vision!
Stanley is the visionary Director of 1990’s “Hardware” and 1992’s “Dust Devil” – both incredible films….However, “Color Out Of Space” is his first feature since being fired from 1996’s notorious “The Island of Dr. Moreau”.
More on that in a minute, but first, the trailer for “Color Out Of Space!”
The Daily Beast has a great article about the film, calling it:
“a trippy and grotesque vision of the real and unreal colliding in the New England wilderness, energized by memorably out-there effects and its reliably rage-y leading man.”
And what else could you ask for?
The Daily Beast goes on to describe the film this way:
“Unholy rumblings, inhuman moaning, and merged-organism mutations become the order of the day, at which point the film truly taps into the idea that there are dark, distant places full of incomprehensible forces and fiends, and that encountering them invariably leads to a warping of time and space. It’s a grand portrait of normalcy twisted, tortured, and ripped apart by the great and awful things that lurk in the abyss.”
Well, I can’t wait to see it! You can read the entire article at The Daily Beast here:
Nicolas Cage is one of our greatest and most unpredictable Actors, never afraid to put it all out there!

Now back to Director Richard Stanley. He made two terrific films in the 90’s – then ran into this man:
I will admit that I am no longer a Marlon Brando fan: near the end of his life he found it entertaining to make life as difficult as he could for the Directors he worked for, and Stanley was no exception.
This documentary candidly looks at how awful Brando was to the Director, and how it cost Stanley his job…a fascinating documentary – you can see the trailer here:
