Barry Mahon's Wonderful Grade-Z Oz!, 26 April 2000
Author: Son of Cathode from New England

Made by exploitation wunderkind Barry Mahon, this well-scrubbed Grade-Z fantasy has all the earmarks of Mahon's other stuff: cute young girls in miniskirts (borrowed from Mahon's adult films); spare, theatrical sets, lots of dull talking scenes, and some passable but silly music. It works better as a filmed stage play than as cinema, but as a bad kiddie film, it can't be beat. Mahon's son Channy is hilarious as a long-haired hippy-child mistaken for a princess(!), but the best character is Jack O'Lantern, a skinny guy wearing a huge grinning pumpkin head; he always looks like he's about to keel over. The funny trailer for this movie made two odd claims: "You'll be OZ-ified!" and "Never before shown anywhere!"
