quietearth [Celluloid 12.23.07] movie news horror

Being a big Lovecraft fan I thought this sounded good. There's been a long tradition of adapting his works into movies, going back to the 60's and maybe even earlier, so this is not something new, especially for this Italian director, Ivan Zuccon. Based on "The Colour Out of Space", Colour from the Dark is the follow-up to the forthcoming film, Nympha. I have not actually watched any Zuccon films, so if you have, please let us know your opinion. Trailer after the break.

"The 1940's, and World War II is raging. Pietro and Lucia live on an isolated farm with Alice, Lucia's younger sister. Alice is a 15 year old who suffers from severe mental problems. Poor farmers, they live tilling the soil. Pietro is a good worker and a strong man who, unlike his three brothers, is not at war because of a deformed knee. Lucia is a beautiful and reserved woman dedicated to her family. Their life is peaceful and good, in spite of the hard work. One day, while drawing water from the well, Pietro and Alice produce a casual and apparently insignificant incident, which frees something from Earth's womb. A strange and alien colour flashes underwater, at the well's bottom, then disappears. From that moment on, inexplicable events start happening all around the farm, and by night the surrounding vegetation glitters with a sinister glow. The colour soon takes hold of the whole farm, and dwelling inside Pietro and his family's minds, it brings them into its sick world of pain, blood and death..."
