One of the creepiest of ABC’s popular “Movie of the Week” series in the 70s, Bad Ronald stars Scott Jacoby as the stammering, geeky Ronald, who just  can’t get an even break among the jocks and Marcia Brady lookalikes who populate his school. After he accidentally kills the most popular girl in class, his mother devises a plan to hide him in the walls of the house and tell the police he has run away. But when mother goes to the hospital for surgery and doesn’t make it home, the house is presumed vacant and sold to another family. Little do they know that Bad Ronald is lurking in the walls, spying on them through little peepholes!

Des courts métrages d'Halloween qui donnent la chair de poule! De monstrueuses chansons ringardes! Des histoires d'épouvante à la lumière de chandelles!  Les légendes garage The Cynics de Pittsburgh sont les invités de Blue Sunshine pour cette programmation double de party d'Halloween qui inclut la projection du rarement présenté Bad Ronald en magnifique 16mm, suivi d'une performance live de The Cynics un peu plus loin au Divan Orange! L'une des plus frissonnantes de la populaire série “Film de la semaine” de ABC dans les années 70, Bad Ronald met en vedette Scott Jacoby dans le rôle Ronald, le nerd bégayant, qui ne peut jamais obtenir de répit de la part des gars populaires et des sosies de Marcia Brady de son école. Après avoir accidentellement tué la fille la plus populaire de sa classe, la mère de Ronald conçoit un plan où elle le cache dans les murs de sa maison et informe la police qu'il a fugué. Mais lorsque la mère doit subir une opération à l'hôpital et ne revient plus chez elle, la maison est présumée vide et vendue à une autre famille. Si seulement ils savaient que Bad Ronald rôde dans les murs, les espionnant à travers de petits trous! L'un des grands succès culte à retardement dans la même veine que The Little Girl Who Lived Down the Lane!
