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!]
