    JEFF LIEBERMAN’S “LOST” FILM REMOTE CONTROL COMES TO BLU AND DVD!

    Cult NYC based filmmaker Jeff Lieberman is best known for his trifecta of scrappy shockers, 1976’s SQUIRM, 1978’s BLUE SUNSHINE and 1981’s JUST BEFORE DAWN, with many in-the-know viewers having an affinity for his wild 2004 black comedy horror film SATAN’S LITTLE HELPER.

    Here’s a little compilation I made for FANGO’s mixcloud player on the eve of the North American release of COME OUT AND PLAY, the elusive Makinov’s remake of Narciso Ibañez Serrador’s WHO CAN KILL A CHILD?.
