Here's an intriguing bit of lost film history -- an independent film, made entirely by a crew of women filmmakers, featuring cinematography by none other than New York's own Roberta Findlay. Anyone know what happened to the 1973 production Double Circle, a.k.a. The Waiting Room? Director/producer Karen Sperling was the daughter of producer Milton Sperling and granddaughter of Harry Warner. She previously made the film Make a Face (1971).
The Dead Next Door is a blog about regional or "backyard" horror and science fiction films made from the late 1950s to the earlyl 1990s (and beyond). These films were released during the peak years of independent film production, created by a motley crew of seasoned pros, gifted amateurs, and enthusiastic genre fans, along with dozens of eccentric dreamers -- doctors, lawyers, insurance salesmen, publishers, commercial filmmakers, TV production crews and moonlighting pornographers -- all looking for their big break or a fast buck or both.
