CinemaBandits Review: The monster-creation budget must've been rather small for the producers of Forbidden World... I've seen scarier things snaked out of my sink!

Unless a hair-clip with eyes frightens you, you're probably not going to be scared by much in this little stinker of a movie... except, maybe, the insipid 80's soundtrack!

Colby, our intrepid intergalactic hero, is called in when a food research space lab is overrun by an angry plant. You see, Colby is a tough guy space ranger who's only called in when every other attempt to eradicate the unruly weed has failed.

And boy is he in for a heck of a fight... this is one bad fern! It's has already killed two nutritional lab assistants and a janitor!

Colby swoops in with his trusty robot sidekick (who looks like a stormtrooper from Star Wars... but sounds alot like a boy who hasn't hit puberty yet) to kick some shrubbery-butt!

For some unknown reason, he's joined by the female half of the Swedish pop-group ABBA. And, even though there's a really mean bush on the loose, they still manage to prance around in one-piece jump-suits for awhile.

See that girl, watch that scene, diggin' the dancing queen!

However, bra-less Swedes in high-heels or not, this ill-tempered seedling is havin' none of it... and soon red-tinted corn syrup & green-tinted chlorophyl starts a-flyin'!

Thanks to some space-age weapons (that look suspiciously like they were scrounged up at the local automotive repair shop) and some ingenuity, Colby is able to out-smart the depraved herb... and save half the members of ABBA!

Swedish disco lives to boogie another day!
