I just have three quick unrelated things to mention today.
The third is the most interesting; it's an exciting bit of news about the movie Outta Control. Have you ever heard of it? It was released back in 1990 straight to video, and although it used to be available for rental locally it is so obscure that even the mighty IMDb doesn't currently have a record on it. It relates to Saugus because the vast majority of it was filmed in town (apparently there are a few minutes of Revere and East Boston footage in it as well) as its storyline involves terrorists in Saugus. It even includes coverage of one of the Saugus Fotomats being leveled by a bulldozer.
Even though none of the (scarce) online reviews of the film are positive, I've been trying off and on to get more information about Outta Control for years just for the historical interest. Unfortunately none of the regional video stores that definitely used to have copies (except for possibly the City Video in Provincetown which supposedly still has at least one copy -- I've not bothered to drive all the way down to confirm it) still do, so it isn't a simple matter of just renting it and watching its credits.
The exciting new bit of info is that I found someone who thinks he has a copy and will be sending it in to the Saugus Historical Society. Hopefully then we'll be able to learn more about it, including everyone who was involved with making it.
If anyone does know anything about Outta Control (or has even just seen it), please comment...
