2 crazy cult classics from Japan in 1 special edition set!
Three unpopular brothers, Masaichi, Masaru and Masao, are struggling to be popular among the girls. Luckily enough, they finally get a chance to have a co-ed picnic with some pretty young ladies! With 21 free-associative episodes ranging from a nonsense "sci-fi" comedy to a dance-battle daydream, FUNKY FOREST: THE FIRST CONTACT will challenge your mind and melt logic, as its unique characters find themselves in warped dimensions way past our imagination.
Six years after directors Shunichiro Miki, Katsuhito Ishii and Hajime Ishimine teamed up to deliver Funky Forest: The First Contact, Shunichiro Miki, flying solo this time, is back to deliver THE WARPED FOREST, a film full of nipple guitars, giant store owners, wiener guns and the Pinkie Pankie monster.
