Description
The 50th Anniversary Special Edition of "Forbidden Planet" (1956) sees one of the best and most influential screen adaptations of Shakespeare's "The Tempest" set in the sci-fi world and dressed in unbelievable special effects. The film, starring Leslie Nielsen, Walter Pidgeon and Anne Francis, has worked as the prototype for every science fiction film to have been made in the last century. "Forbidden Planet" tells the story of a man who has created a paradise that he enjoys living in, only in another planet. Having no intention of returning to Earth, he sees rescue missions as a threat. Inventive, fun and incredibly original, this is a brilliant film which takes the term bizarre to a new, creative level.
