Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Canon Films Trailer

Do you remember Cannon Films and all of their crazy films? During the 70s, 80s and 90s, Cannon was infamous for making low-budget B-movies with international action stars that would earned cult followings despite being pretty bad. The studio was actually the run by Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus, two Israeli cousins who moved to Hollywood and decided to make movies the way they wanted to make them, with the stars (and nudity and violence) they wanted to see. Mark Hartley's doc Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films tells the complete story behind how it came together, how they earned a place in Hollywood history, and how it all came crashing down. It's a fun, nostalgic doc - fire it up.

First NSFW trailer for Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films doc on Vimeo:

Full description from Vimeo: "A documentary about Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus - two movie-obsessed cousins whose passion for cinema changed the way movies were made and marketed - and the tale of how this passion ultimately led to the demise of the company they built together. Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films is not just a hilarious tale of scattergun movie making, but of two cousins whose passion for cinema changed the way movies were made and marketed, and how ultimately this passion would come between them and the company they built together. This is a one-of-a-kind story about two-of-a-kind men who (for better or worse) changed film forever." The documentary is directed by Mark Hartley (Not Quite Hollywood) and premiered at TIFF & Fantastic Fest. Stay tuned for release details.

Ahhh... childhood memories...

So many video shop classics right there. Van Dammage was in Breakin' the movie also? Ice T too. American Ninja though! Set me up for love of some of the worst movies ever.

Fantastically terrible.

Lou Ferrigno's Hercules and Missing in Action were the best!

I just saw some of Hercules on tv the other night, it was properly bad but with so much camp it was good.

Carpola on Oct 6, 2014


yeah, terrible ones, true; but god, oh my god, regardless the fact they were so distasteful, I liked them...

I love this shit. Takes me back to the only good memories of my childhood. They can just keep making movies like this all they want. I loved Not Quite Hollywood and Machete Maidens and I can't wait to see this. Yes, fucking please!
