Oingo Boingo and Elfman fans should be getting excited about the summer with the arrival of Aliens, Clowns & Geeks. The film is from the Richard Elfman who over 40 years ago gave us the cult favorite Forbidden Zone. The movie introduced a lot of people to the music of Oingo Boingo, the band that featured his brother Danny. Now they’re back along with Richard’s son Bohdi Elfman (Criminal Minds) for another wild cinematic journey. The movie also features George Wendt from Cheers and Steve Agee from Peacemaker. The DVD and Blu-ray come out in June. Here’s the press release from MVD Entertainment:
