The film: Forbidden Zone

The guest: Rob Godinez (No Trauma)

Among the first of the oft-lauded Midnight Movies that featured Eraserhead, Rocky Horror Picture Show, and El TopoForbidden Zone is something of an amalgam of at least two of the aforementioned titles. It has in common with Eraserhead, its black and white presentation and near incoherent plot that rewards repeat viewing. And it is a musical with zany characters much like Rocky Horror…however, where Rocky Horror is a send up of those “dark and stormy night” thrillers, Forbidden Zone seems to be a blender full of nonsense with a dash of satire on Southern California cultural stereotypes… This episode of “WDWJW” has Rob and I discussing the ’81/’82 classic musical Forbidden Zone. Is it worth a watch or skip it outright?
