This film combines three 1972 amateur shorts produced by Shawn Malone. In “Attack of the Giant Turtle,” a turtle tramples several scale model homes and a locomotive. “SFORZ” and “The Cosmic Idiot” capture Malone’s friends donning disguises and dancing on command. A young Malone produced this and many other amateur films in Houston during the 1970s, casting his family and friends as the featured players.
