Astoundingly CHEAP!! 4 Feb 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
THE WONDERFUL LAND OF OZ and JACK AND THE BEANSTALK are both directed by BARRY MAHON, a veteran exploitation film maker.
WONDERFUL LAND OF OZ stars the tone deaf Channy Mahon as TIP who fans of the books will know is really Princess Ozma enchanted as a boy. Channy Mahon "sings" several HIDEOUS tunes amidst sets that look like they were set up on a elementary school stage and created out of paste and construction paper. This movie was done on the cheap. Frankly that is what is fun about it. It is absolutely fascinating to watch because it is just truly terrible. I have NEVER seen anything that compares to the outright and unabashed CHEAPNESS of this flick. The songs are wretched and sung by people who just can't sing. The GUMP is the most wretchedly constructed prop ever. And the effects for when it flys...well they certainly are special.

JACK AND THE BEANSTALK has much better songs, although they still suck. And it looks a little bit more polished and not quite as cheap. It also thankfully does not star the uninspiring Channy Mahon. We do get to see the evil GIANT launch into a terrible little ditty called FE FI FO FUM at least three awful times.
The wonderful thing about this DVD is that it contains probably 20 odd trailers for bottom of the barrel childrens trash epics from the 60's and 70's...and maybe even the 50's.
These trailers have to be seen to be believed. MEXICAN IMPORTS like LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD AND THE MONSTERS must have employed a crew completely on drugs. The dubbing just in this trailer alone rivals any bad dubbing I have ever seen. Your jaw will drop when you see just how profoundly disturbing this trailer is. There are no words to describe my utter sense of wonder when I watch the trailers on this disc. THE SECRET OF MAGIC ISLAND is a movie I just have to see. It features a cast of live animals doing all kinds of ridiculous things like taking showers and plotting schemes. IF YOU ARE FAN OF TRASH!! YOU MUST BUY THIS DISC IMMEDIATELY!!!
This disc is the perfect gift for that insipid child in your life who is only intelligent enough to barely comprehend POKEMON. Get the child this disc and they will hate you forever for marring their lackluster BARNEYesque existence with something they won't understand but will none the less disturb them.

Top-Notch DVD 23 Jan 2003
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
This has to be one of the most interesting DVDs ever made! It not only has two examples of the kiddie matinee genre, but it also has about 20 trailers of other films of this type! The best is "The Secret of Magic Isalnd", which has an organ-playing cat, a villainous monkey, an all-bird choir practice, and more wackiness for the family! There are 3 cheap cartoons, a novelty short, and a half-hour condensation of "The Magic Land of Mother Goose", directed by Herschell "Blood Feast" Lewis! The films are cute and even charming.- Jamie Teller(13).

Barry Mahon Strikes Again 28 Oct 2011

If Dungeons of Harrow had been a musical, watching that might-- MIGHT prepare you for Wonderful Land of Oz.

SEE the army of teenage 60s hotties in their "evil drum majorette" outfits!

SEE the talent-free Channy Mahon yowl his way through this "musical."

SEE the plywood nailed together in a configuration that vaguely suggests the outline of the Emerald City! (And every other location.)

See the community theater wicked witch (and Tin Man and Scarecrow and...).

If you love jaw-dropping cinema, if your favorite part of Game of Death was the first few minutes, if your idea of a good time is to repeatedly stammer "I-- I can't believe they even TRIED to do this!"

You will love Barry Mahon's The Wonderful Land of Oz.

Jack and the Beanstalk is the same drill, made with more effort, and far less ambitious-- and it lacks everything that makes "Oz" so hideously riveting.
This movie has haunted me nearly my entire life!!!! 30 May 2013

I was never sure if I had dreamed or imagined that my grandmother had taken me at 5 years old to a not-the-real-thing Wizard of Oz movie, but for 45 years I've had a vague image in my head of an army of pretty girls armed with knitting needles. In the throes of insomnia one night I started searching the web, and found out my partially repressed memory, was real!!!! I couldn't resist and spent some good dollars on this abjectly horrendous movie, just to see the knitting needle soldiers once more!!!!

It was worth every dollar to feel what must have been the same pain my grandmother surely felt having shelled out cash on this piece of dreck back in '68.

Craptastic cinema at its worst. But at least I know with certainty that I'm not the one who actually invented this miserable excuse for a movie!

One of the worst movies I've ever seen! And the extras are bad too! The Trailers are a symphony of bad film suffering. A must have for the bad movie buff!
