Forbidden Zone (1982) Or The Best White Elephant Yet!
Just cause it's dangerous doesn't mean you shouldn't visit
Genre: Comedy Fantasy Musical
Starring: Hervé Villechaize ("Fantasy Island" • The Man with the Golden Gun), Susan Tyrrell (Big Top Pee-wee • Powder)
Directed By: Richard Elfman (Shrunken Heads • Modern Vampires)
Overview: The Hercules family's basement contains a portal to the Sixth Dimension. When daughter Frenchy ends up in this Forbidden Zone it's up to her family to venture forth and rescue her from the diminutive King, his larger-than-life Queen and their host of wacky minions.
Forbidden Zone is a black and white fever dream of adult madness. What could easily have been a children's fantasy musical was gloriously put to death from the first shot to the final breath. With random humping, gratuitous nudity, potty-mouth characters and ever so adult situations Richard Elfman ensures that this musical extravaganza of the strange is rooted in the mature.

Overall Rating: 62% (Dare To Enter!)
To put it simply, Forbidden Zone is bad enough that it knows it's 'so bad it's good' and hence becomes good by being 'good at being so bad', which makes it really really bad... so good!
See what other critics had to say about the stinky movies assigned to them for the White Elephant Blog-A-Thon, being held over at Lucid Screening. My submission was Ghoulies. Oh yeah, I'm looking forward to that!
