"My COLOUR FROM THE DARK takes place in Italy, in the 1940s, with WWII raging," Zuccon tells Fango. "Pietro and Lucia live on an isolated farm with Alice, Lucia's younger sister.... Poor farmers, they live tilling the soil. Pietro is a good worker and a strong man who, unlike his three brothers, is not at war because of a deformed knee. Lucia is a beautiful and reserved woman dedicated to her family. Their life is peaceful and good, in spite of the hard work. One day, while drawing water from the well, Pietro and Alice accidentally free something from Earth's womb. A strange and alien color flashes underwater, at the well's bottom, then disappears. From that moment on, inexplicable events start happening all around the farm, and by night the surrounding vegetation glitters with a sinister glow. The color soon takes hold of the whole farm, and dwelling inside Pietro and his family's minds, it brings them into its sick world of pain, blood and death."
COLOUR FROM THE DARK is a co-production between Zuccon's Italian Studio Interzona company and Canadian producers David Bond and Jeff Thomas from Exofest. "We have a better budget than SHUNNED HOUSE," says Zuccon, who also helmed the two direct-to-video BEYOND films, "but we will shoot again in DigiBeta. But the Canadian guys have a connection with a Hollywood-based company and will transfer the movie to 35mm for a U.S. theatrical release." -Tony Timpone

Review on MJSimpson.co.uk (8th Nov 2008)
18th Nov 2007, DreadCentral.com - "Our resident Cthulhu worshipper D.W. Bostaph threw me a heads up that the films trailer is online, and I gotta say its pretty slick for a low-budget indie shot in Italy. Debbie Rochon stars as a dedicated framers wife who becomes a raging monstrosity after something is unleashed from the Earths womb via their well. Its interesting because its a period movie (set in the 1940s), though I wonder how much that will come into play in the final film." - Johnny Butane
