1978's Blue Sunshine was low budget horror-auteur director Jeff Lieberman’s second film entry in his far too-slim resume, following the worm-has-turned horror of 1976's Squirm and preceding his cut-above 1981 slasher flick Just Before Dawn. Starring future Two Moon Junction/Wild Orchid softcore auteur Zalman King, the trip begins at the Cult Fiction Underground at Logue’s Black Raven Emporium, 2915 Gallatin Rd., tonight and Saturday at 8 and 10 p.m.
