Curse of the Blue Lights

Watched February 9, 2015

Starring: Claytan A. McCaw, Patrick Keller, Deborah McVencenty, Becky Golladay

A farmer is driving his tractor through a field when he stops by a scarecrow. At the foot of the scarecrow he finds a mutilated animal that is covered in strange corn goo. As the man investigates the animal, the scarecrow comes to life and vomits into the farmer's mouth. The farmer tries to run away but the scarecrow removes itself from it's perch, runs after him and kills him.

Two teen boys meet up after school to take their girlfriends to Blue Lights, the local make out spot. As they drive out there they spend a bunch of exposition time talking about what the blue lights are.  The blue lights are supposed to signify the Muldoon man, a crazy monster. On the way to make out point the teens almost run into a horse and carriage with the ghouls in it.

Much to their surprise as they are making out at Blue Lights, they see some random blue lights. They get out of their car to meet up with three guys they know from school. One of the guys just got a vintage 'cuda. The whole group wants to explore the blue lights, so they start off on a random path. One of the fatter guys who has a mustache (the same guys who owns the sweet 'cuda), trips and slides down the hill and hits his crotch on a mysterious shape. The group follows him and they discover that he hit his crotch on a blue stone arm. The rest of the body seems to be buried in the ground. Nearby they find a strange, stone disk with random writing on it. They take the disk, but as they are driving away they are pulled over for speeding. The cop doesn't believe their story about the stone arm, so they lead him to the spot. But instead of finding the arm, there is just a giant hole there now. The cop leaves after giving them a speeding ticket.  From the hole where the arm was they see marks that it was dragged away, and it looks like the arm was connected to something much larger. The rest of the kids follow the drag marks into a cemetery and deeper into a crypt. Within the crypt they see three ghouls who are trying to resurrect the Muldoon Man, which was the arm they found, by feeding him stewed up parts of humans they have killed.

The group gets scared and run away from the cemetery and the ghouls. They safely make it back to their car to drive away, only to be pulled over by the same cop. He continues not to believe their crazy story so he makes them all walk home. As they break up and head home, the first guy is taken by the ghouls. The cop car passes him and he is grabbed by giant long arms. Another of the group of three guys is taken and turned into a snake companion for the head ghoul.

The original make out couples go to a witch to try to figure out what the disk means. The witch is hard to decipher but she does make a potion that will kill the ghouls. The two guys are allowed to walk through a mirror she has that leads them to the house where the ghouls are. The girls wait with the witch. Two of the ghouls are sleeping when the boys find them. They manage to kill one but the other wakes up before getting the potion. After some runaround the boys escape. As the girls wait with the witch she becomes inhabited by the demons so they escape by walking through the mirror too.

Now the girls are in the house, the ghouls attack them and tie them up. It turns out that the ghouls need the disk as the final piece to bring the Muldoon Man back to life.  From the boys they get the disk, but the boys return with weapons to fight the demon ghouls. They fight the demons, but they have created a zombie army that attacks the girls.  They stab the main ghoul but he flips the lever to complete the Muldoon Man transformation. The other ghoul is melted into the goo that has been nourishing the Muldoon Man. The couples escape the crypt as the cops arrive and shoot the remaining zombies. The Muldoon Man comes for them with all his monster rage and bullets cannot pierce his tough hide. Luckily one the teen boys has a bottle of nitroglycerin that he throws in the path of the monster. The Muldoon Man steps on the nitroglycerin and is blown up.

The teen girls are useless, the effects are gross and great. The fat teen with a mustache dies with an awesome face melt. The witch is terrible and really hard to understand what she is talking about. They spend an insane amount of time in the car just getting to and from make out point. The Foley artist took it to the max in the with scenes with a wind chime that continues throughout.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable movie, it's my type of low budget horror movie.
