Tom Stern and I directed this movie for Twentieth Century Fox. It was our theatrical debut, and the first time we had ever shot 35mm. Tom and I met at NYU and directed together for over seven years; music videos, commercials and our MTV Series The Idiot Box. Crazy days of youth.
Ricky Coogan (Alex Winter) is the friendly face of a chemical company who, in attempting to discover the effects of the toxins he’s peddling, travels to a mutant freak farm run by an eccentric scientist (Randy Quaid).
