Blurb:

PSYCHOSIS…
It started off as a great party – just eight of them in a ski-lodge in upstate New York. But then the last guest, Frannie, arrived. There was something wrong with Frannie’s hair. And something very wrong with his eyes. And what he did to three of the girls was too hideous for description….
That was just the start. After that, things began to happen all over New York – ugly things: psychosis, insanity, murder – and no one could find an explanation. The police were helpless – because they didn’t know that behind all the grisly happenings lay a single, uncontrollable horror. A horror called
BLUE SUNSHINE…
Based on an original screenplay by Jeff Lieberman
