With all of the other peculiar things that happen regularly in Florida, you might have missed this: The cast and crew of the obscure Tampa-lensed shocker Satan's Children will reunite for a 40th anniversary screening this Saturday (Nov. 15) at the Tampa Theatre.
Appearing for a Q&A after the screening are Stephen White (Bobby), Rosemary Orlando (Monica), John Edwards (Joshua), John Mocsary (make-up effects artist), and Bill Dudley (sound recordist).
According to the promo below, Florida-based actor/director/Tim Ritter collaborator Joel D. Wynkoop will host the proceedings. You can read more about the film's director, the late Joel Wiezycki, here.
Before he made the insane faux-bigfoot horror film Blood Stalkers (1978), Robert W. Morgan had already established himself as a well-known (and a bit eccentric) bigfoot expert. This documentary follows Morgan and his team as they hunt for the Sasquatch in the Pacific Northwest. Portions of the film were later re-purposed in the very similar Bigfoot: Man or Beast film released by director Lawrence Crowley which includes additional, un-related footage.
Vinegar Syndrome has released the film on a double-bill with Cry Wilderness (1986), a family-friendly bigfoot flick.
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.
