"this film wil rock of your socks. there are rock and roll moments that feel so lively and fun that you want to watch it a bunch of times just to memorize the songs! and at the same time there are a few moments of horror and dread that are nasty enough to make you squirm in your seat a little......wich is AWESOME!!
well rounded horror musical. WATCH!"
WOW...Gotta Buy This One!!!

"This was a tremendously fun ride. It is a special moment when I actually fall into the story line and feel total immersion into the actors portrayal of an alternate world created by the skillful hands of gifted screenwriters and directors. To me, that is what entertainment is really about, the captured experience during the circus ride of sights and sounds a movie provides. I don't know why I didn't discover this flick sooner, I certainly try to keep an eye out for modern interpretations of the classics. This was a fine job interpreting the classic Hyde monster. I felt it was much more believable than the digitized mountainous Hyde's in the Van-Helsing and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen stories. You certainly owe it to yourself to try this more believable version out. The
combination of an engaging soundtrack, believable actors, and a gripping version of the storyline kept me immersed throughout. I offer a "job well done" to this crew!!!
A Great Rock/ Horror Musical!

"I was truly inspired by this musical. The Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Rock and Roll Musical is a independent film that has a great story and wonderful music. It's not to often you see a rock and roll musical with such great musical talent. I think any Rock /Horror enthusiast or independent film maker would enjoy seeing this film. The songs are great. I was wondering if there is CD with all the awesome music? Does anybody have it. It is great stuff. Gotta get the songs on my ipod! I hope this film is seen by a large audience. It's just great fun! Can't wait to see Bernhoft again. I hope he has something coming out soon! Maybe another horror musical?
A must have!!

"If your looking for a wild ride, this is it!

True art constantly reinvents itself. And reinventing an art form is exactly what this film does. When we think of musicals, warm and approachable names like "Oklahoma," "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers," and "South Pacific" come to mind. Films you grew up with. Films that leave a smile on your face. Admittedly, traditional musicals have almost always been associated with light hearted and sappy entertainment. Then there is that little handful of films that comes along and pushes the art-form, "Tommy," "Sweeney Todd," "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" and films of that ilk. Art shouldn't be stagnate, it should reinvent itself. It should always be challenged.

The mere thought of taking the Robert Louis Stevenson's famed dark novel and turning it into a musical, is not only challenging an art-form, it is death defyingly risky. Fortunately, "The Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde Rock 'n' Roll Musical" succeeds with flying colors. To make it too serious would be to try to perfect an already perfect style of story-telling, and that's just plain boring. And, to make it sketch comedy silly wouldn't be challenging at all. Mel Brooks perfected the art form of making horror hilarious years ago (see "Young Frankenstein" for an iconic example of that). But, to let visceral rock and roll music and a raw, almost retro, style of filmmaking tell the story is just plain brilliant. I'm not saying that this film is an equal to "The Godfather" but it is definitely one cool ride. This is one of those fantastic films where if you sit back, let your hair down, expect nothing and let the music and the form carry you on a journey. If you do, you'll walk away satisfied and deep in thought for weeks to come.

Bernhoft and Champagne (the songwriter/lead actor and director respectively) are an amazing filmmaking team who's raw talent to move you with their story is self-evident and effective. For me they have succeeded simply because I can't stop thinking about this film. I will not be surprised at all if it becomes a cult classic. It's style is unique, it's form is avant garde and it boasts a CD's worth of unforgettable music. No one has ever come close to telling Stevenson's timely tale, or for that matter any horror classic, like this.

All in all, I liked this film very much. It bothered me (in a good way) and made me content all in the same instant. Interesting films always do. This film is definitely worth having in your DVD library."
