Finally, a video re-release of Zapped!, most likely the finest 1980's T&A teenager flick of all time. If it had been available to buy 5 years ago, I wouldn't have had to steal my copy from a video store in Cleveland.
Let's make something clear first, this is NOT a good movie. It's really bad. So bad it's good. When you put together a team of mediocre television actors, Scatman Crothers, a loose plot that exists for no other reason than to show T&A, and some of the most absurd dream sequences ever put to film, you have nowhere to go but insanity. And that's just where Zapped! takes you. Once you see it, you'll never forget it, even if you hate it. It's a film that will never be truly appreciated for it's chaotic genius and pure intentions (those intentions being - "let's show the kids some nudity" - what's more pure than that?). But what can we expect from a society that gives Tom Hanks awards for sap like Forrest Gump and completely ignores his truly shining moments in The Burbs?
Now, if only they'd do a VHS reissue of Scott Baio's finest acting ever in the made for TV special "Stoned."
