In the 1980s, the name Cannon Films became synonymous with gonzo cinema, and in this documentary from filmmaker Mark Hartley (Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of Ozploitation!, Machete Maidens Unleashed!, the story of the house Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus built comes to life through the hilarious anecdotes of those who were there to witness the insanity first-hand. Franco Nero, Richard Chamberlain, Dolph Lundgren, Alex Winter, Lucinda Dickey and more reflect on the glorious heyday of the studio that delivered such 80's cult classics as Breakin', Lifeforce, Invasion U.S.A, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, and of course one of the most notoriously awful musicals ever committed to film, The Apple.
