Electric Boogaloo: The Untold Story of Cannon Films
PAPER-THIN PLOTS… WOODEN ACTING… RUBBER CHEQUES…
Strap yourselves in and take an off-road cinematic rampage through the bowels of Hollywood’s least-loved film studio, CANNON FILMS.
Responsible for churning out a breathtaking cavalcade of hits and misses (including DEATH WISH II, BREAKIN’, INVASION USA and MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE) that showcased ninjas, nudity, creaky monosyllabic action heroes, threadbare plots and accidental moments of near-genius – the folks at Cannon botched plots, bounced cheques and burned careers – and in doing so forever changed the way movies were made and marketed.

KARATE-KICKIN’ MIDGETS… PAPER-MACHE MONSTERS… BUSTY BABES WITH BLADES…
Join us for a non-stop Filipino femme-fest, all the way from the jungles of the Pacific via the trash cans of the critics!
Boasting cheap labour, exotic scenery and non-existent health and safety regulations, The Philippines was a dreamland for exploitation auteurs whose renegade productions were soon engulfing drive-in screens around the globe like a tidal schlock-wave!
This is the ultimate insiders account of a far away backlot where stuntmen came cheap, plot was obsolete - and the make-up guy was packin’ heat!

No, we only ship inside the US
Most orders for in-stock items take less than 24 hours to ship (may take longer if you place an order over the weekend). Pre-orders are shipped as soon as the product arrives. International pre-orders may not come in before the street date. This is especially true with Australian pre-orders.
We only use USPS for all shipments. If there is an issue after your order ships you will need to contact your local post office.
All items that come with a slipcover will say so in the product page.
Pre-orders will not say WITH SLIPCOVER until the product comes in.
Slipcovers are not guaranteed to be in mint condition.
If you can order it, it's either in stock or a pre-order. If an item is out of stock you will not be able to add it to your cart. It's rare but our inventory may not be correct. So in some cases an item may have to be shipped separately.
We do not sell bootlegs. All product arrives from the distributor or is directly from the filmmakers. All items are new and sealed. Some indie titles or signed editions may not have shrinkwrap.
