Shudder Acquires Color Out of Space The Shed

Shudder has acquired the exclusive North American streaming rights for both Richard Stanley‘s H.P. Lovecraft adaptation Color Out of Space and Frank Sabatella‘s vampire film The Shed, Deadline reports today.

The films are slated to arrive on the streaming service in the US, Canada, UK and Ireland later this year.

Both films were also released on Blu-ray/DVD earlier this year via RLJE Films.

"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," said Shudder’s GM Craig Engler. "The first half of 2020 has been the most successful in Shudder history, and these two great films will be part of an already-strong second half of the year, alongside titles like Scare Package, The Beach House, La Llorona, Scare Me and our upcoming original documentary on the history of Queer Horror."

In Color Out of Space, "After a meteorite lands in the front yard of their farm, Nathan Gardner and his family find themselves battling a mutant extraterrestrial organism as it infects their minds and bodies, transforming their quiet rural life into a technicolor nightmare."

And in The Shed, Stan and his best friend Dommer 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 - but Dommer has a much more sinister plan in mind."
