Forbidden Zone

My newest film in­fat­u­a­tion is Forbidden Zone, a cre­ation by The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo and fea­tur­ing a great sound­track en­hanced by Danny Elfman.

True to my ever-eclec­tic film taste, this cult mas­ter­piece com­bi­nes my fa­vorite German Expressionism, old style Bosco car­toon­ish­ness, ex­tra-di­men­sions, midgets [Herve Villechaize!], frog but­lers, hot top­less wom­en, and bondage in­to a strange con­fec­tion of joy [to me at least]. This is def­i­nite­ly some­thing you should see at some point in your life. Many thanks go to Ballroom Johnson and Andy at The Lit for in­tro­duc­ing me to this film. I now own it on DVD, though it took 6 weeks to get it. Here is an­oth­er take on it and the of­fi­cial site [im­ages]. Thanks to YouTube, you can see some clips:

• Squeezit the Moocher [Danny Elfman as Satan!]
• Bim Bam Boom
• Pico and Sepulveda
Learn Your ABCs
• Witch’s Egg [Susan Tyrell!]
