In this second adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's story "The Colour out of Space," a huge, glowing meteorite falls on a farm in Tellico Plains, Tennesse. After the meteorite melts into the soil, strange mutations occur on the farm. The fruit and livestock become filled with maggots, cabbage and chickens become filled with green slime, and certain members of the farm family become swollen, slime-drooling mutants. Now two of the farmer's children who wisely avoided the meteorite's contamination seek outside help.
From the darkest part of the heavens, terror has arrived.

Contrary to the actual films credits, producer Ovidio G. Assonitis in an interview says Lucio Fulci was not his partner on producing the film. He states that Fulci was only the director of the second unit.
Producer Ovidio G. Assonitis says the film was inspired by the social crisis of the farmers during the Ronald Reagan administration in the United States during the 1980s.
Despite the titles, all three sequels have nothing to do with this original film or each other. All the sequels used the "Curse" name to capitalize on the cult success of the original.
