Forbidden Zone (In Color), directed and produced by Richard Elfman, is a surreal musical based on the live performances of the Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo. When Ma Hercules (Virginia Rose) and Pa Hercules (Gene Cunningham) purchase a house from a drug addled slum lord (also played by Gene Cunningham), their daughter Frenchy (Marie-Pascale Elfman) finds a secret door in the basement. It transports her to the Sixth Dimension where she is captured by the king of the realm, Fausto (Herv'' Villechaize) and imprisoned with his concubines. Frenchy's brother Flash (Phil Gordon) enlists the help of their grandpa (Hyman Diamond) to rescue Frenchy. There they encounter a host of odd characters, including an evil topless Queen (Susan Tyrell), a talking frog (Jan Stuart Schwartz), and even Satan himself (Danny Elfman). Featuring a musical score by Danny Elfman, this fantasy film is a treat for fans of Oingo Boingo, or of avant-garde cinema.
