    As far as Disney theme park movie adaptations go, this one falls somewhere between Tomorrowland and The Country Bears.

    The Japanese director of Hausu (1977) brings his trademark insanity to this manga adaptation about a school that time-slips into a future desert wasteland. It’s Lord of the Flies meets Goonies as the stranded schoolchildren struggle to survive amidst psychedelic storms and giant cockroach monsters, all beautifully scored by Joe Hisaishi, famous for his evocative work on Ghibli films. A bizarre mix of Japanese and phonetic English only enhances the weirdness and at times the acting is so bad it’s good again. Stick around for the spontaneous song and dance numbers.
