Genre: Action

Plot: Cult director Monte Hellman (TWO-LANE BLACKTOP, THE SHOOTING) returns to the screen after a 9-year lapse with this incredibly strange picture which was shot in the heart of Spain. Based on the novel by Alberto Vazquez Figueroa (whose other books inspired the films DESERT WARRIOR, ORO ROJO, and OCEANO), IGUANA features another cult favorite, Everett McGill (Big Ed of TWIN PEAKS' Big Ed's Gas Farm), in the lead role. McGill is Oberlus, a 19th Century sailor who is cursed with a grotesque facial deformity and as a result is taunted with the nickname Iguana. After he is relentlessly abused and tortured by his callous shipmates, he finds himself stranded on a deserted island. Unfortunately for a group of shipwrecked sailors, they seek refuge on Oberlus' land at a time when he's finally become fed up with the entire human race. It isn't long before he begins to wreak havoc on them, forcing two of the shipwrecked sailors, Sebastien (Michael Madsen) and Gamboa (Fabio Testi), to stand up for their crew, saving the lives of everyone in the process. Difficult to label, IGUANA features an unsettling blend of action, gore, humor, and drama, making it a hard-to-find, but always interesting film.
