By the way the German translators totally messed that scene up. Let me re-translate what they translated into German (and I swear that this is the truth):

"Green sky in the morning brings sorrow and pain"

"And green sky at night?"

"Makes the neighbour horny!"

Just another fine example of the quality work of our translators.

You guys in Sweden don't dub movies, right?



WOW! That puts a whole new spin on the movie.

Re: Your theories on the green lights


But the WTF moment just came when I first saw the US version in English (2004 when the DVD was released). It was then when I realized how bad the dubbing really is.

There are also some careless mistakes. For example in the scene when Ray and Art talk to each other in the backyard and Vince brings the human bone Ray once calls Art by his own name "Ray".

On your roof? Was your middle name Safety or Lewis? I hope you weren't a Rummsfield.

I like to think that the lights serve as a warning. I mean, Ricky Butler even says Green sky at morning, neighbor take warning. Green sky at night, neighbor take flight. And we pretty much only see the green lights around the Klopeks, or their house.

Re: Your theories on the green lights


I read somewhere that green light is one of the few colors that rarely appears in nature ( sunlight is yellow or orange or reddish, moonlight is blue). So any use of green light creates an unsettling, eerie, unnatural quality. That's why so many horror movies and alien movies utilize green light for mood and atmosphere.
