Anthony Michael Hall and Ilan Mitchell-Smith play nerds who feed a centerfold into a computer and generate their own real-life fantasy woman in the form of Kelly Le Brock. As she teaches the boys how to be men, they deal with a number of comic complications and supporting characters, including a hilarious Bill Paxton.
A coal miner (Emil Jannings) encounters the demonic Algol, who divulges the secret of harnessing the rays of the star Algol as a source of energy; the miner becomes the most powerful man in the world, with every country dependent on his energy supply. A sci-fi morality tale with inventive art direction by Walter Reimann, this tinted and toned restoration features a recorded score by Stephen Horne.

The long-planned second feature from the creative team behind DELICATESSEN is just as bizarre, sinister and wildly imaginative as its predecessor, mixing elements of Dr. Caligari, Victor Hugo and Rube Goldberg into the story of a kind-hearted circus strongman (Ron Perlman) and his coquettish 7-year old side-kick (Judith Vittet), who attempt to stop a wicked scientist (Daniel Emilfork) from stealing the dreams of little children.
