@HPLHS giving away “The Color Out of Space” audiobook today.

Note, not the DART.



Man, adapting “The Colour Out of Space” would be tough.

I mean, I’m glad that somebody’s trying to adapt HP Lovecraft’s classic science fiction/horror story for the big screen, but it’s not the easiest story to show over the course of an hour and a half. It would have made a perfect Twilight Zone episode, or maybe a radio program, but there’s a distinct lack of physical action in the story. Which is fine for horror! In fact, it’s one of the things that makes “The Colour Out of Space” such a great story; the ‘monster’ is right there, right out in the open, and nobody can do anything about it.

But that’s hard to pull off in a visual medium; at least, it’s hard to sustain. You can get a half hour of good footage out of it, sure. But if you wanted to make a movie… then what do you do?
