John Connor [DVD News 08.21.15] musical cult fantasy avant-garde

Richard Elfman's (brother to composer Danny Elfman's) Forbidden Zone, is widely considered the most classic of cult classics. The Citizen Kane of underground movies if you will. It's a film where sexy Frenchy falls into an insane underworld ruled by a horny little king and his jealous queen. Where Chicken-boy comes to the rescue, only to have his head cut off by the soul-singing Devil himself--played by Danny Elfman and the Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo. I mean, come on!

Frog butlers, topless princesses and rioting school kids sing and dance in unforgettable musical numbers by Danny Elfman, Cab Calloway, Josephine Baker and other greats.

Now Forbidden Zone is hitting shelves on September 29th in a special edition DVD, Blu-ray and soundtrack packages. And each edition contains the black and white and color transfers of the film for the first time ever.

Our own Hal McDermot reviewed the film and interviewed Richard Elfman, so be sure to check those links out!

The set features a terrific booklet and loads of bonus features.
