4 stars out of 5 -- Entertaining, but also insightful about bizarre strands of 1980s film history...
May 29, 2015
Rating: 4/5 -- While the documentary's scattershot approach makes it less examination, more vivid highlight reel, there is no denying Electric Boogaloo's abiding fodness for its subject matter. Full Review
Apr 5, 2019
It is, as per usual for Hartley, a giddy, lightning-paced celebration of cheerfully terrible movies. Full Review

It isn't a bad thing Hartley's main concern is with having a good time, but there seems to be less attention to detail when it comes to the overall structure. Full Review

Product Description:

In the 1980s, the name Cannon Films became synonymous with gonzo cinema, and in this documentary from filmmaker Mark Hartley (NOT QUITE HOLLYWOOD: THE WILD, UNTOLD STORY OF OZPLOITATION!, MACHETE MAIDENS UNLEASHED!, the story of the house Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus built comes to life through the hilarious anecdotes of those who were there to witness the insanity first-hand. Franco Nero, Richard Chamberlain, Dolph Lundgren, Alex Winter, Lucinda Dickey and more reflect on the glorious heyday of the studio that delivered such 80's cult classics as BREAKIN', LIFEFORCE, INVASION U.S.A, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2, and of course one of the most notoriously awful musicals ever committed to film, THE APPLE.
