Here's an underrated flick made in Georgia by some indie filmmakers from Hollywood. Normally that would preclude the film from my definition of "regional," but this one makes the cut thanks to director Tucker Johnston, who previously worked on Southern Shockers with this film's co-writer, Ken Sanders. You can read a little more about the film here.
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.
