I watched this movie on the Sci Fi Channel sometime between 1992 and 1996. It may have been produced in the late 80s. I vaguely remember watching it as a kid but it took place in the desert. It was most likely low budget and may POSSIBLY be based on a novel.
I think that people in a town started to get sick or started disappearing. I remember a teenage kid getting cut on either a vehicle or construction vehicle and his blood was either blue or green. I also remember towards the end of the movie over a hill in a desert I think, there was some sort of bubble pod or containment that was either lit or blue that was holding people from the town. I think that the main protagonist jumped into it? I don’t remember the plot, only smalls bits and pieces. It reminded me of the body snatchers and how people were acting different/getting sick.
