- Video Junkie Review
"Zuccon makes the most of his medium, pushing it to limits heretofore unseen... Also notable on the acting
front is Marysia Kay, who is totally believable in her role as Alice, and it
is through her acting and Zuccon’s directing that Rosina actually becomes more than a prop but a full
- Horror Society Review
"I found Marysa’s performance as Alice to be innocent but incredibly chilling."
- Movie Outlaw review (Mar 2010)
"Moody, beautiful and with a deliberate pace, Ivan Zuccon’s Colour from the Dark is at once pure Lovecraft and something unique unto itself."
- Unrated Review (Jan 2010):
"rich in rustic horror... the scene enhanced by Marysia Kay's performance that exudes both childlike
vulnerability and schizophrenic menace." ... "cements Zuccon's position as one of the leading Italian
filmmakers working within the supernatural tradition"
- From Behind the Couch Review (July 2009):
"Zuccon easily sets his viewers on edge and creates an uneasy malaise that practically wafts

with such a low budget."
- Horror Fanatics Review (May 2009):
"I went into this film expecting to enjoy it as I did Zuccon’s previous

the Dark is by far the best Lovecraft adaptation I’ve seen, with genuinely
terrifying imagery, beautiful attention to detail, and a well rounded, brilliant cast"
- Goshzilla Review
- Bloody-Disgusting review

justice by capturing the bleak, grotesque and utterly frightening atmosphere of the source material very, very well."

"I have been able to watch Ivan grow and develop as a director since his feature debut...
he gets better with every film. I think this may be his best yet... it’s magnificent."
