Movie Reviews

Still the best of the 80s heavy metal horror films
Charlie B. Counselman | Greensboro, NC, USA | 11/17/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am a big fan of the 80s music oriented horror films such as Rock n' Roll Nightmare, Slumber Party Massacre 2, Terror on Tour, Shock 'em Dead (which has yet to see a dvd release), Trick or Treat, etc. and this is my favorite one. Rock n' Roll Nightmare is probably a close 2nd place, but this film has better special effects, funnier characters, and is even more bizarre and unpredictable. I ordered this DVD as soon as I heard it was coming out. My VHS copy was one of my most treasured films because it was so hard to find and long out of print. I am glad this one didn't slip into obscurity."
Love the cover, but the movie is not as good.

"Well I went into this movie with a bit higher hopes than I should have so thats my own fault. But overall, this movie is not bad - just not what I thought perhaps.

The jist is that a demonic band comes to a small town to perform a rock concert. Unknown to the adults of the town, the band is really playing the music of the devil and possesses the towns kids turning them into misfits and creatures of the night.

The effects are ok for a 1988' Rock/Horror movie. But it just didn't hold my interest. If this movie sounds like something you would like to see, then by all means check it out. If not, then simply avoid it. The final creature makeup was a little weak, but to see demonic creatures playing rock metal... damn thats fun stuff!"

"A Heavy metal cult classic from the 1980s. This movie, with its hard driving, blood boiling, heavy metal songs is sure to please! The demon song (one of my favorates) titled,"We against the world," is performed awesomely! The human disguised, Demon rock musicans really put on a show and terrorize a small bible thumping town! This movie will entertain and scare you too! I loved it! Check it out!"
