ChatCast 54: Richard Stanley on ‘Color Out of Space’

February 12, 2020

Richard Stanley is in the house! We continue to unleash our Fantastic Fest conversations held last year in the great state of Texas. H.P. Lovecraft + Richard Stanley + Nicolas Cage = "Color Out of Space." The film is one helluva wallop and lives up to its magical ingredients in ways we were not expecting, but thoroughly enjoyed.

Getting the chance to talk to Stanley regarding his obsession with Lovecraft and his desire to challenge the writer's nastier sensibilities was a true delight, and one we'll cherish for some time to come. We talk about why 'Color Out of Space' was the only Lovecraft tale he could tackle, how his mother influenced his artistic vision and the dreams that came to him as he was mucking about in such dark realms.
