Shudder has announced its acquisition of exclusive U.S. streaming rights for Richard Stanley’s COLOR OUT OF SPACE, starring Nicolas Cage, Joely Richardson, and Madeleine Arthur. Shudder also announced its new streaming rights for THE SHED, the sophomore feature from writer/director Frank Sabatella, starring Jay Jay Warren, Cody Kostro, Sofia Happonen, Frank Whaley, Siobhan Fallon Hogan, and Timothy Bottoms. Both films will premiere on Shudder later this year.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing Shudder members Stanley’s masterful adaptation of one of H.P. Lovecraft’s most influential stories—as well as another unforgettable Nicolas Cage performance—and Sabatella’s inventive new take on the vampire genre,” says Shudder General Manager Craig Engler.
In Color Out Of Space, a meteorite lands in the front yard of Nathan Gardner’s (Cage) farm. He and his family find themselves battling a mutant extraterrestrial organism that infects their minds and bodies, transforming their quiet rural life into a living nightmare.
The Shed follows Stan (Warren) and his best friend Dommer (Kostro), who have put up with bullies their entire lives. All of that changes when Stan discovers he has a murderous vampire living in his shed. Seeing the bloodshed and destruction the monster is capable of, Stan knows he has to find a way to destroy it; however, Dommer has a much more sinister plan in mind.
The deals were negotiated by Emily Gotto for Shudder and Debra Fisher for RLJE Films.
