Directed by Richard Stanley. With Nicolas Cage, Joely Richardson, Madeleine Arthur, Elliot Knight. A secluded farm is struck by a strange meteorite which has apocalyptic consequences for the family living there and possibly the world.
Adapted from a Lovecraft story, so you know that there’s going to be some real mind breaking storypoints and that by the end of the story pretty much everyone involved is going to be dead, dying, or in an insane asylum. That all holds to be true here, with some really impressive visuals to boot. I was also impressed with the sound design and score too.
It has Nicolas Cage acting crazy, which is the best kind of Nicolas Cage acting.
