Trailer of the Week: Curse of the Blue Lights (1988)
I overlooked this one when I published the book, but Code Red released this Pueblo, Colorado-based film on disc a few years back. Local filmmaker John Henry Johnson was at the helm, and the film is periodically screened in Pueblo by the Southeastern Colorado Heritage Center.
I can't actually find a trailer online (although one was included on the DVD), so here's the whole movie, thanks to a YouTube poster.
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.
