A cosmic nightmare from the minds of H.P. Lovecraft and cult director, Richard Stanley, Colour Out Of Spacefollows Nathan Gardner (Nicolas Cage), Theresa Gardner (Joely Richardson), and their three children, (Madeleine Arthur, Brenden Meyer, and Julian Hilliard), whose recent retreat to rural life quickly crumbles when a meteorite crashes into their front yard. The mysterious aerolite seems to melt into the earth, infecting both the land and the properties of space-time. Mutant forms of technicolour flora start sprouting, while local animals begin to display bizarre deformities. Soon, the Gardners realise that they too are susceptible to the extraterrestrial pathogen, and must escape the contagious cloud that has consumed their farm. With the help of a friendly hydrologist (Elliot Knight) and eccentric neighbor (Tommy Chong), the family attempts to battle a nebulous entity that they can barely begin to understand. What chance can a few humans have against a force capable of traversing the gulf between worlds, a nightmarish being that exists beyond the limits of the human spectrum?
