Who doesn't love hair metal?
This film is one of the most hilariously high camp flicks out there. It pulls out all the stops of a shitty 80s horror and leaves you just jaw dropped at the idea that this fucker seemed to have been made specifically for a movie freak to find the VHS in a sketchy video shop and watch it 20 years after it was made and love how silly it is. It was also filmed in Hamilton, Ontario. The cherry on top.
Watched this one back to back with Rock 'n' Roll Nightmare, and I have to say that this one was the more competent of the two, and even features a cameo (pre-Sopranos) from Big Pussy as a kids father, which was an amusing moment in the film. A metal band turns up in a small town to turn the local teens into possessed creatures as part of a pact with Satan, which sounds like a Focus On The Family inspired nightmare from middle America in the '80s, and it plays out as such.
Well worth a rental.
This is movie 6 of a metal horror movie marathon and crowned the most metal movie played at the marathon in a very mathematical system based on cock pieces, gauntlets, songs played and demons.
Grown-ups really hate metal... so sad...
The cool English teacher will even stomach it, until his students stop being enamored with poetry...
then cute alligator like demons make me happy!
