Color Out of Space

Movie • 2019 • Horror  

Report
The Gardner family moves to a remote farmstead in rural New England to escape the hustle of the 21st century. They are busy adapting to their new life when a meteorite crashes into their front yard, melts into the earth, and infects both the land and the properties of space-time with a strange, otherworldly colour. To their horror, the family discovers this alien force is gradually mutating every life form that it touches—including them.
This movie contains 47 potentially triggering events.

The family's dog runs off and we hear it whining in pain offscreen as it is hurt and possibly killed. We later see the dog again, now mutated and gory - whether or not it is alive at this exact point is kind of ambiguous, but the dog definitely dies.

Three children, two of which are older and seemingly teenagers, are left otherwise unsupervised for a night due to a medical emergency. The parents attempt to keep in touch and return promptly, but there are a few scenes where the children are stressed at being left alone.

it’s passively mentioned during the dad’s psychotic break that he’s “not a monster” like his father, but he is verbally abusive and later hurts his daughter and throws her in a room with a monsters despite her pleas and bargaining.

No direct gaslighting. However characters try to reassure/convince themselves and eachother that everything is fine when it clearly isn't.

As the family is affected by the supernatural changes that occur in the movie, their father becomes more aggressive. He verbally berates the kids and yells, mostly at Lavinia, who he laters grabs and pulls through the house, causing her to protest that he's hurting her. He also shoves her.

There may be an alcohol addiction, but it's hard to say. The father is seen drinking often to cope with bizarre and horrifying events. He also acts agressive and irrationally afterwards, though it is due to an outside force rather than the drinking. It could remind people of living with someone with an addiction or substance/alcohol problem.

Lavinia's horse runs off into the woods and isn't seen again for the rest of the movie, and it can be assumed from events in the movie that it dies off-screen.

The family's alpacas become mutated and gory and are shot partially on-screen as a mercy killing. In another scene, the mutated corpse of several woodland animals merged together is shown. It can also be assumed from events in the movie that many animals die off-screen.

Several dead animals and body horror of those animals. It is very gory in parts. Although, they are not shown on screen for very long, in my opinion. What is happening to the animals apparent in much of the film, however.

Mantis-like creatures are seen flying around as a result of the meteorite, and when first introduced we are shown a close-up of one's face. They don't have any specific role in the horror beyond being just one of many strange things happening in the woods.

No one is burned by fire on or off screen, graphically or otherwise. The sheriff who comes to assist Howard at the farm near the end of the movie is consumed by the Color, but it is very fast and the audience doesn't get a good look at what happens. Another character afterward describes the sensation of this as being similar to burning, but it is clearly not a fire, and he seems to be speaking metaphorically. When examined by police, the alpacas appear to have radiation burns, but it is unclear whether they have actually been burned or if it is a mutation that merely resembles it.

While chopping carrots, a character cuts off the tips of their own fingers. We see the injury on-screen and it is later bandaged. If you're okay knowing that this happens but don't want to see the actual finger trauma, leave when you first see the carrots being cut. The carrot chopping scene is long enough that you'll have time to close your eyes or walk away from the movie before it happens.

The movie as a whole is about characters who lose their sanity and grip on reality as a result of an external, supernatural force. For the most part, this is shown in the sense that characters' personalities change subtly and slowly as they are pushed to the edge. In a few scenes characters' eyes or foreheads glow as an indication that this supernatural force is controlling them.

A character visits the hospital to treat an injury, but the hospital itself is only shown on-screen briefly when we see a character attempting to call others from the hospital. No medical equipment or medical procedures are shown on-screen. We later see the character who went to the hospital with their injury bandaged, and it is stated that they had received successful surgery off-screen.

Theresa, the mother, has cancer. It's referenced multiple times throughout the movie but never discussed at length - it's mostly established as just a fact of her character. We don't see her receiving treatment, but we do see her hair falling out in a few scenes.

Users often seem to vote Yes to this question due to body horror and this movie has a lot of it (people's bodies mutate in grotesque ways, at one point two characters fuse together horrifically). As the other comment stated, this isn't really dysmorphia.

Characters are continuously in anxiety-inducing situations, and they do become more frantic as the story progresses, but a character does not specifically have an anxiety attack as would be caused by a mental health condition.

It isn’t exactly birth, at one point the mother and youngest child mutate together. The mother’s body “reabaorbs” or “reassimilates” the child’s body into her own and there is at least one baby cry during one of these scenes.

The parents fall in bed together and kiss in a scene clearly intended to lead to sex, but are interrupted before they can really do anything. This is referenced once later. Lavinia and Ward have some romantic chemistry and have a couple moments that could be potentially seen as sexual (she calls attention to him looking at her legs, her mother says she's "sending him signals") but nothing explicit happens. That's the extent of the sexual content.

As others state, there is a point in which the two parents in the film are driving home. There is a mutated cat in the road and there are bright lights, raised voices, loud noises, and they nearly hit the cat, but break just in time.

Blood and gore feature extensively throughout the movie, especially in the form of body horror. If that's a particularly upsetting thing for you it'd likely be best to just skip this movie.

One character falls into a well but it's unclear whether he dies from drowning
