Colour From The Dark (2009)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
07.09.09

Colour From The Dark (2009) Ivan Zuccon's newest is an adaptation of the H.P. Lovecraft story, which has previously been adapted to the screen as the movies DIE, MONSTER, DIE (1965) and THE CURSE (1987).

It's 1940's Italy. Lucia (Debbie Rochon) and her husband Pietro live on an isolated farm, making a meager existence. Also with them is Lucia's younger sister, a mentally handicapped 23 year old girl named Alice. The movie begins with Alice having a creepy nightmare involving the well outside, a nightmare which eventually comes true.

They've disturbed something in the well and now it's filled with a strange light and substance. Their crops mysteriously grow overnight and Pietro's lame knee, which kept him out of the fighting, heals. Even Alice begins to speak. However, this improvement is short-lived, as within the week everything literally goes to hell. The "light" from the well starts sucking away all of their life force. Lucia begins to lose her mind and is locked away by Pietro. By the end she looks like the possessed Megan from THE EXORCIST and is responsible for the deaths of several characters.

A lot of care is taken with the cinematography (also by director Zuccon), as well as the lighting, to create a creepily beautiful backdrop against which this descent into madness happens. The CGI special effects are subtle enough as to not distract from the story, And the screenplay itself is different enough from those previous movies that COLOUR FROM THE DARK is it's own thing. COLOUR FROM THE DARK is one of the better horror movies of 2009.
