VYNÁLEZ ZKÁZY - "The Deadly Invention" (The Fabulous World Of Jules Verne) (1958)


Sometimes you just have to just come out and say it, shit is fucked up right now! That being said, "The Fabulous World Of Jules Verne" is prefect for the ocassion!

This Czechoslovakian movie is insane, that is insane in a "Mysti-Mation" Silver Apples kind of way!

The Silver Apples references have no real basis, except they're just one of my favorite bands and like this film, they were way ahead of their time, and will keep you wondering! If you don't believe me, then listen to this:

Nothing really much matters except since that this was 1958, and the people who made this movie just might be from another planet! The 13th planet from the Sun, Planet Dali!!

I can't help but think that Monty Python's Terry Gilliam must have seen this movie when he was 18 and in art skool!

Wasn't this a bootleg alternative Grateful Dead album cover for "Shakedown Street?"

Moog Synthesizers, banjos, and ratz! Just what the WTFAXTLY?

This could have possibly been a collaboration between Silver Apples and Procol Harum if they were artists instead of musicians!

Monkey money and monkey brains will save the world no doubt! 60 years later, and we're about to find out! Wonder indeed!!

I don't think it's hard to know why that to this day, this is the most successful Czech film ever made!


I'm gonna stay here all night! It really is amazing to look at!

Successive attempts to collect more data have been fruitless!

This was 60 years ago, and I don't know about you, but I still don't have my own personal submarine or flying car!!

"Vynález Zkázy" looks cool.......

.....And is surreal as Hell!!

"I've learned what truth denies, I never knew I had a choice!" - Silver Apples
 Let's just try and avoid this ending!

Well, if anyone ever asks for a list of movies to watch while high on drugs, I guess you can include this thing on the list. Along with Yellow Submarine, Head, Fantasia, and 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Don't forget "Wonderwall" to top off that afternoon!

I have a whole list too. Ones like Candy, Psych-Out, The President's Analyst.
