Trailer of the Week: Spookies (1986)

For this week's trailer, I've selected Spookies, a disjointed haunted house flick from New York that both confounded and amused me when I first saw it. When I was putting together the Regional Horror Films book, I found a number of articles and interviews online that detailed its troubled production history -- one that involved two separate directors and crews, as well as a lot of bad feelings.

Now Max Evry over at The Dissolve has gathered all of the major participants from both stages of filming for what has to be the definitive oral history of Spookies/Twisted Souls.
