Straight out of a Lovecraft tale, a renaissance hero and his gang stop a deranged scientist who opened a portal to another dimension during an ill-advised experiment in BUCKAROO BANZAI.

Dr. Buckaroo Banzai is a real renaissance man: a physicist, neurosurgeon, test pilot, and even a rock musician. Is there anything he can’t do?! Well, when it comes to saving the world from the band of inter-dimensional aliens the Red Lectroids, he and his crew The Hong Kong Cavaliers are really put to the test. Buckaroo Banzai (aka The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension) is brilliantly adventurous and unique film that spans so many genres and has a rather complicated backstory that involves a secret device called an “oscillation overthruster,” traveling to other dimensions, alien hitchhikers, and a madman scientist. A must see!
