Lost Cult Film 'The Blue Man' (Eternal Evil) To Screen At Fantasia

There is some exciting horror news coming out of Montreal in advance of the Canadian genre film festival Fantasia.  Deep in the vaults of the Cinamathteque Quebecoise they've discovered a 35mm print of director George Mihalka's 1985 film, The Blue Man AKA Eternal Evil. Mihalka is probably best known to American audiences as the director of the 1981 horror classic My Bloody Valentine. Not only will the film screen at Fantasia, but Mihalka will be available for photos and questions after the screening. Said screening is set to take place on July the 26th at 7:00pm at the Cinematheque Quebecoise. The Blue Man AKA Eternal Evil stars Karen Black along with Winston Rekert. Check out a couple of posters for the film below, along with an extended synopsis below.

"A director going through a creative slump, Paul Sharpe is forced to shoot insipid TV commercials just to keep his Montreal-based production company afloat. Dissatisfied of his life both at work and at home, he finds solace in the arms of his mistress, Janus, who introduces him to the world of astral projections, an esoteric practice in which the spirit dissociates itself from the body to freely explore its surroundings. But are these astral journeys really harmless? Not only is Paul’s son convinced that he’s seeing a transparent blue being flying around the house, but people close to Paul are now starting to die one after another while he sleeps. Furthermore, it appears that the victims’ bones and internal organs are literally shredded from the inside. With a cop investigating the string of murders, the noose is tightening around Paul as he comes to realize that this whole ordeal can probably be traced back to a documentary he made a few years earlier."
