This classic cult horror film, from acclaimed writer/director Jeff Lieberman, is a masterpiece of psychological suspense and terror.

At a party, someone goes insane and murders three women. Falsely accused of the brutal killings, Jerry (Red Shoe Diaries Zalman King) is on the run. More bizarre killings continue with alarming frequency all over town. Trying to clear his name, Jerry discovers the shocking truth...people are losing their hair and turning into violent psychopaths and the connection may be a drug all the murderers took a decade before. Soon, if Jerry can t stop it, the horror will become uncontrollable...the horror caused by Blue Sunshine!

Format: DVD
1978's cult oddity "Blue Sunshine" is considered by some to be a minor classic from the late seventies indie horror scene. It is a movie that I remember enjoying upon my initial viewing many years ago. Now, seeing the 35th anniversary release, I'm not sure that its many delightfully strange elements combine to form a cohesive whole. The narrative promises a lot, and just when you think the big payoff is coming, the film abruptly ends. As a time capsule, a product of its era, or a nostalgia piece--I can see why Jeff Lieberman's (Squirm) movie might elicit interest. Ultimately, though, the film stands as an interesting curiosity that doesn't quite pan out as opposed to a fully satisfying film experience. With elements of satire, drug counterculture, horror, Hitchcockian innocent man thriller, and political skullduggery--I really rooted for this lunatic movie. But it simply doesn't have any follow-through. It introduces a number of intriguing themes but never seems to know what to do with them!

The film centers around an innocent man on the run played by Zalman King (of Red Shoes Diaries' fame). At a party he had attended, one of the guests (Billy Crystal's brother, in fact) goes berserk and murders several people. Tracking down convenient clues, it seems that this is not an insolated incident. Several normal citizens have turned to murder and the common threads seem to be a loss of hair and a degree from Stanford. Great job, Stanford! Is it tied to an experimental drug the victims used ten years ago? How does a local congressional candidate fit into all the unpleasantness? Will the lone hapless detective on the case catch King before he has a chance to unveil the truth? Will King's girlfriend get another hat?

This is an odd outing. Not a bad idea but it's handled poorly.

Here's the scoop. Zalman King is at a Christmas party with some friends. One guy goes nuts and kills three of the women. King becomes a suspect. Other psycho deaths happen in the area and King does a little investigative work of his own. He finds out all the killers were at the same university at the same time and all probably availed themselves to Blue Sunshine, one of the varieties of LSD making the rounds at the time. It's been incubating inside the takers these ten years causing them to all lose their hair and go violently bananas.

This is some pretty dumb stuff. Because of the obvious clues, the viewer puts everything together before the participants. It's just a matter of how it will all come together and that was really lame. It was clumsy and dumb. Characters did and said things that were not at all in line with the scene. And King's trying to find the center of it all, with the authorities' trying to track him down, didn't even reach the level of a made for TV movie. Jeff Lieberman's directing was stiff and some of the production values, particularly the lighting, were pretty awful. I liked Lieberman's "Squirm" quite a bit. His "Satan's Littler Helper" I could have done without. After seeing this I won't be quick to track down his other endeavors.

It was interesting to see Zalman King before he went into directing. Mark Goddard, of "Lost in Space" fame and Robert Waldon turned in decent performances. Everyone else was sub prime.

This needed a much better script. How it became a cult hit in some circles is beyond me. Unless you have a lot of time on your hands, I'd give it a pass.

This is one of those rare occasions where a film is capable of getting both a one-star rating as well as a five-star rating. The one-star here is for its lack of follow-through in its premise. Today, this idea has morphed into the 'Zombie Apocalypse' craze, without the ten-year delay! You can see the classic 'disco' scene where he goes bald n' nuts on yootoob, but the additional material included in this moo-vie makes it worth watching again, in the hindsight of our fading memories. Camp rules !! Hope the Brown acid at Woodstock doesn't result in this type of reaction, huh? 'Brown S*** shine?' Ouch ! Buy this DVD
