“Magnificently Bonkers” - Variety

The latest gonzo extravaganza from Wakaliwood, Uganda — home of “DA BEST OF DA BEST MOVIES!” including cult hits WHO KILLED CAPTAIN ALEX? and Fantastic Fest 2016 Audience Award winner BAD BLACK — CRAZY WORLD is a non-stop barrage of insane energy, deft comedy, fantastic action, and boatloads of passion.

For the past decade, director, writer, producer, editor, and cinematographer Isaac Nabwana and producer/star Alan Ssali Hofmanis, have cultivated a filmmaking community in Uganda, dubbed Wakaliwood, to produce dozens of blisteringly energetic action films with an infectious DIY sensibility on budgets that rarely exceed $200 US dollars. Utilizing scrap parts to build props like helicopters, these real-life superheroes inspire more heart, imagination and soul than a thousand Hollywood blockbusters.

Conceived by Isaac Nabwana as a pre-emptive measure to discourage the kidnapping of his own children (seriously), CRAZY WORLD opens with the notorious Tiger Mafia (a frequent Wakaliwood antagonist) embarking on a child-abduction spree. Intending to sacrifice children in a misguided belief that their blood contains magical properties, the criminals make a crucial mistake when they snatch the WAKA STARS, Uganda’s pint-sized kung-fu masters. Before long, these badass brats start applying their martial-arts prowess and cunning wits to escape their captors, while their desperate parents commence a rescue/revenge mission of their own. (Peter Kuplowsky, Toronto International Film Festival)

CRAZY WORLD blew away the audience at its Toronto Midnight Madness premiere in 2019, and now that it’s streaming exclusively on Alamo On Demand you can experience this year’s most insane action movie for yourself.
