Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: R (Violence, Nudity, etc.)

Tentacle Ratings

A rough measure of how "Lovecraftian" the work is:

  • SS___ (Two Tentacles: barely Lovecraftian)

Based (loosely) on "The Colour Out of Space (fiction)", but the "colour" infestation seems to have taken on more traditionally demonic possession qualities in this adaptation.

Note: This rating is not intended as a measure of quality, merely of how closely related to Lovecraftian "Weird" fiction the work is.

Reviews

Review Links:

  • TheUnspeakableOath dotcom (link) - "If you can overlook those missteps, chalking them up perhaps to the director's personal views coming through the story he’s trying to retell, then you’ll still find a good, scary and rather faithful version of The Colour Out of Space."
  • HorrorNews dotnet (link) - "I highly recommend this as a great “put the fear of the devil into you ya” type of film."
