Today is a disrupted day due to errands and visits. But also I have to watch the Nick Cage movie of the H.P. Lovecraft story “The Color Out of Space.” Tyler Cook of the Portly Politico and I have agreed to each watch this stinkeroo and then review it to the best of our abilities. He has watched it and assures me it’s awful. So today I will bite the bullet and watch it before Camera Girl gets back from weekly shopping. I am dreading the experience already. The things I do for my art.
It has been brought to my attention that a film version of “The Color of Space,” one of the only good H.P. Lovecraft stories, was made last year and it starred Nick Cage. I vowed I would watch, no matter how bad. And to get my self in the mood to appreciate this cinematic experience, I watched a very funny SNL skit from back in 2012 when the show was only mostly bad.
Here’s the trailer for this magnum opus. How could it go wrong?
