FORBIDDEN ZONE
1982, 74 min, USA, Dir: Richard Elfman

A mysterious door leads to the Sixth Dimension - get ready for a wild ride - in one of the greatest cult classics of all time! Beautiful young "Frenchy" (Marie-Pascale Elfman) slides through cosmic intestines into a subterranean world ruled by horny midget King Fausto (Herve Villechaize) and his jealous Queen Doris (Susan Tyrrell). "Chicken-boy" (Matthew Bright, director of FREEWAY) comes to the rescue, only to have his head cut off by the soul-singing Devil himself - played by Danny Elfman and the original Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo. Frog butlers, topless princesses and rioting school kids sing and dance in unforgettable musical numbers by Danny Elfman, Cab Calloway, Josephine Baker and others. An experience you will never forget!
