Hey everybody! How was your week? Oh really? Good to hear! Anyways, we have another Fond Object Sunday Movie Night coming at'cha this week, and it is gonna melt your brain!

Since the last couple of weeks the movies we have shown have been a bit on the grim side, we decided to lighten things up this week with the whacked-out FORBIDDEN ZONE!

Forbidden Zone is a 1980 musical comedy film based upon the stage performances of the Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo. Originally shot on black-and-white film, the story of Forbidden Zone involves an alternate universe accessed through a door in the house of the Hercules family. Directed and produced by Richard Elfman, who co-wrote the film with fellow Mystic Knights member Matthew Bright, it was the first film scored by his brother Danny Elfman. The film stars Hervé Villechaize, Susan Tyrrell and members of the Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo, and features appearances by Warhol Superstar Viva, Joe Spinell and The Kipper Kids. Herve Villechaize kicked his cheque back into the production, even painted sets on weekends. The only actual paid actor was Phil Gordon, who played Flash. All the other SAG actors kicked their cheques back into the show.

Forbidden Zone was made as an attempt to capture the essence of The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo's live performances on film, and also as a means for both Richard Elfman to retire from music to work on film projects, and to serve as a transition between Oingo Boingo's former cabaret style and a new wave-based style.

If you have not seen this little gem of a movie, then you will definitely want to be here on Sunday night!
