Iguana movie scene

Everett McGill is the 19th Century sailor known as Iguana

Everett McGill (TV’s Twin Peaks) stars in Monte Hellman’s (Road to Nowhere, The Shooting) strange, rarely-seen 1988 adventure film Iguana.

McGill portrays a grotesquely disfigured harpooner known as “Iguana,” who is severely mistreated by his fellow sailors on a whaling ship in the 19th century. One night, Iguana escapes and takes up residence on a remote island, where he makes himself the absolute ruler declares war on mankind. Anyone unfortunate enough to wind up on the island with Iguana is then subjected to his cruel tyranny….

Awarded the Filmcritica “Bastone Bianco” Award (Special Mention) at the Venice Film Festival, Iguana also features Michael Madsen (The Brazen Bull), Fabio Testi (Letters to Juliet) and Maru Valdivieso in its cast.

Bonus features on the Blu-ray and DVD include a recent interview with Monte Hellman and an illustrated booklet with a critical analysis on the film by Fangoria Magazine’s Chris Alexander.
