Mandy & Color Out of Space

Jasper returns and he brought with him a magenta-soaked Nicolas Cage double feature! Up first is the heavy metal revenge fantasy Mandy. This surreal film is directed by Panos Cosmatos and combines 70s and 80s genre schlock with arthouse stylization.

Then we follow up with another colorful and stylish Nicolas Cage gone mad (or rather, more mad than usual) film, Color Out of Space. Director Richard Stanley returns to filmmaking after 20 years with this beautifully shot and disturbing adaptation of the H.P. Lovecraft tale. Of course, it wouldn’t be Grawlix Cinematic Universe unless we then try to mash these films together in some kind of ultimate, unholy Nic Cage horror epic. Enjoy!
