More of a thriller/suspense than horror, I'm not quite sure why it's on Shudder.
Like all great horror, Colors is about perception and the deceitfulness of the human mind. This is one of the most horrifying of the giallo movement and one of my favourite horror films in general. Let this one fuck with your head for 90 minutes (and then for the rest of your life).
**spoiler/tw at bottom of review** I really thoroughly enjoyed this. While the overall plot may be semi typical sexy-psychedelic-demon cult gaillo there is something about the acting, imagery and overall tone that makes this one a unique standout. As a huge nerd about vintage/20th century fashion, the fabulous costuming, hair and set design were an unexpected treat. If you're a fan of mod, early 70's style you really don't wanna miss this. Doesn't skimp on the blood or gratuitous nudity, has a relatively solid and 100% enjoyable plot, aesthetically pleasing. 10/10 have watched again. **TW abortion and possible non-consensual drug use
GOD this slapped so hard. Surrealist scenes of mental decay juxtaposed against a Rosemary's Baby-esque Satanic conspiracy plot, with the added twist of never quite knowing what's real and what's fake because of our limited narrator. SO glad Shudder introduced me to this one.
