Daniel Kremer on

Blue Sunshine

Released 1978
Distributor Cinema Shares International Distribution

Director Jeff Lieberman’s acid-laced horror satire about a killer strain of LSD could have been the plot of the squarer-than-square Dragnet in 1968: party-goers are helping themselves to a brand of Psilocybin that results in murder sprees. And that’s not all, the drug makes your hair fall out (that’ll show those damn hippies). Zalman King and Deborah Winters star, and Lieberman wrote the uniquely plotted screenplay.

About Daniel Kremer

San Francisco filmmaker Daniel Kremer has provided audio commentary tracks for Kino Lorber, Shout! Factory, AGFA, and Scorpion disc releases, and essays for Twilight Time special editions. His acclaimed epic-length film Overwhelm the Sky (2019), adapted from a 1799 American Gothic novel, was screened internationally in classic  roadshow format, complete with overture, intermission, and printed souvenir programs. These deluxe screenings received  many accolades before Kino Lorber acquired distribution rights. Kremer's book Sidney J. Furie: Life and Films was published through Patrick McGilligan's Screen Classics Series in 2015. He is currently under contract at Oxford University Press for the first book about Joan Micklin Silver. His other films include the independent dramas Raise Your Kids on Seltzer (2015) and Ezer Kenegdo (2017). He  enjoys doing commentary tracks with fellow TFH guru Allan Arkush.
