Trailer of the Week: Invasion of the Blood Farmers (1972)
Upstate New York experienced the Invasion of the Blood Farmers (1972) thanks to producers Ed Kelleher and Ed Adlum (interviewed in my upcoming book). They followed up with Shriek of the Mutilated (1974).
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.
