This one's like watching an hour and half long cheesy metal video. With a few ghouls thrown in for good measure.

"This movie contains one of the most insane "WTF!" climactic twists of any movie ever. Crammed with excelent dish washing scenes, Stuffed condom like monsters, and some of the best Horror rock jam sessions of all time (incuding the classic songs: "We live to rock!", "You give me energy!", and the epicly sublime "WE ACCEPT THE CHALLANGE!") and of course...Stig.
It all comes togehter under the granite hard fist of the canadian rock god THOR! to make one of the best films ever to come out of the planet earth.
This movie is a cool test. If you don't love it, consider yourself quite uncool."

"Ultimately, I like this film, though I am a bit mixed on a few things. The basic plot involves Thor and his band recording their new album in a small house in Canada. The house was the site of a murder(we get to see it in the beginning of the film) years before. Soon after their arrival, Thor and co. start getting assaulted by demons that look like Jim Henson creations on crack. Chaos ensues and in the end we get a pretty cool twist as to the identity and motivations of Thor's character. It just goes to prove as we all already know that nothing defeats the power and might of metal!! The concept of a hard rock band menaced by cheap looking monsters is a B-movie fan's dream. Unfortunately, the film's short running time is jam packed with long, boring filler scenes of....well, nothing really. Lots of babble, and lingering camera shots of various crap that really serves no purpose. The rock band, The Tritons, come across as alot more goody two-shoes than most cinematic rock bands. No drugs, no profanity, and they're monogamus! When the demons show up to cause mayhem, things start to look up, but the scenes are so brief, few and far between. It's almost as though the "horror" aspect of the film was thrown in as an afterthought and the project originally started off as a low budget soap opera about a band rehearsing. The songs should bring a smile to your face however. What makes up for everything though is the final battle between Thor and the devil. This scene alone is worth owning the dvd, and is one of the most entertaining scenes in my recent memory. Very funny, very cool. If only the rest of the film had taken this kind of outrageous tone(there seemed to be times when the film was actually trying to be somewhat serious, though that just might be my imagination), than this would be one of my favorite movies of all time. Synapse did a great job with the quality of the disc, giving us some music videos and a documentary on Thor's career. He seems awfully proud of the film to this day. Hey, why not? If I got to smack the devil around in my undies, I'd be rather proud myself, Bub. Rock and Roll Nightmare, despite some shortcomings, is definitely worth the watch. I gave it three stars, but three and a half is a bit more like it. And remember, WE LIVE TO ROCK!"

"The less you know about this incredible movie, the more you will appreciate it. I will not give much plot details away. I've watched this with various groups of people, some will love it and some will not. I personally love it, and it blows my mind each and every time I will watch it. If you love heavy metal and the smoking the sweet leaf, this movie is for you. Anyone else should sit aside. Cheers!"
