Jeff Lieberman, Blue Sunshine, 1978

Blue Sunshine

29 May 2014

When several old school friends start losing their hair and becoming crazed homicidal maniacs, there must be a connection. But what?

Jeff Lieberman throws down a Cronenberg style mystery thriller, mixing in socio political elements in a post war suburban America, politicians with dark pasts, side dealing doctors, and a hero who repeatedly finds himself in rather awkward predicaments. Blue Sunshine is a trip, from the first scene to the climatic final mall-based disco-tastrophe.

Presented in 35mm by Cigarette Burns, and with an introduction from Jon Towlson, author of Subversive Horror Cinema: Countercultural Messages of Films from Frankenstein to the Present (McFarland & Co, 2014).
