I am sure most of you know this one. Features Ozzy (who I thought did a pretty good job - wanted more) and Gene Simmons. Satanic resurrection and heavy metal. An outcast uses the powers of his favorite metal singer who died a few days prior seek to revenge on the jocks who picked on him, but loses control.

Treat. Definitely Treat.

"Sometimes a movie can become a perfect little time capsule. "Trick or Treat" is such a movie. I have no idea how seriously the filmmakers intended it to be (the casting implies their tongues were quite firmly lodged in their cheeks), but it hits on, and satirizes, so many themes of its time - the alienation of outsiders, the perceived danger of heavy metal lyrics & backward masking, the fear of satanism - that I have to believe there's some kind of genius at work here.It's not a perfect flick, by any stretch. It isn't the least bit scary, for one, and it has some awkward dialogue and pacing. But darned if it doesn't hold up as a nifty little satire. Oh, and the scene where the dead metal star seduces the girl through her walkman - that's pretty hot, and pretty much caters directly to the frustrated adolescent male mind. Which only illustrates the point more.I'm a sucker for good genre movies, so I'm a sucker for "Trick or Treat." Plus it's great to see Skippy try to stretch a little."
A good sounding heavy metal band of the 80's!

"The movie was alot of fun to watch which featured Marc Price(The Keaton's neighbor Skippy on "Family Ties")who does an energetic performance in the movie. I thought that Fastway did very well with their music for the movie. I really like "Stand Up." Other great numbers are "After Midnight", "Get Tough", "Don't Stop the Fight" and the theme song "Trick Or Treat." Tony Fields plays the dead rocker Sammi Curr who lipsynchs to the songs. If you have the soundtrack, and haven't seen the movie yet, watch it on Halloween, you'll want to eat it up!"
A Great, But Forgotten Band

"Hey you got your Movie review on my Soundtrack review!!! Kind of a hodge-podge of reviews posted here, mine is for the soundtrack only. The movie was goofy fun, but come on...it starred Skippy from "Family Ties"!!! Fastway is one of those great undiscovered bands from the 80's hair metal scene and along with bands like "Black n' Blue" and "Waysted", Fastway just couldn't break through that glass ceiling to join the ranks of Ratt, Poison and Cinderella. It's really as shame, because Fastway put out some great music. "Trick or Treat" is just a fantastic, metal-head's delight. Just pop this disc in and try not playing air guitar to "Trick or Treat" or "After Midnight". Listen to one of the coolest bass lines of all times with "Heft". If you are a fan of 80's hair metal then this is a disc you must own. After just one listen I guarantee you will back on Amazon buying the rest of the Fastway catalog."
