Default Forbidden Zone (Blu-ray): Official Announcement

Forbidden Zone (Arrow Video) Limited Edition Blu-ray



Step into The Forbidden Zone, a bizarro world of frog butlers, topless princesses, machine-gun toting teachers, eccentric dwarves, their demonic wives, and the Devil himself (Danny Elfman). You’ve never seen anything like it...!

Check your basement. Is there door to the 6th Dimension there? If so, you’re going on a wild ride into excess as you join Frenchy and Rene in a land of musical madness, despotic queens and strange frog man-servants.

If you’ve tired of Rocky Horror and had enough of Hedwig, it’s time discover The Forbidden Zone, a demented tribute to the hot jazz and dark glamour of a lost age, featuring new wave pop music and Cab Calloway-style insanity, filtered through the mind of a maniac!

Any word on why this release also looks to have been postponed slightly?
Amazon are now listing the release date as 21st May?...

That's the first I've heard of it as, for my review, I'm working on the assumption it'll be released on May 7.

Play have also now changed the release date but HMV still have it listed for release on 7th May?
I wonder if it's those damn printers again???
I'm not too concerned about any delay with this one though, so long as THBTC isn't going to get delayed too...

Yep, slipboxes messed up by the printers. Seems HBTC might be the same. Arrow confirmed it on Twitter.
