Alice Cooper - Welcome to My Nightmare (1975)

Movie Info

This is a remastered version of macabre rock star Alice Cooper's 1975 performance of his Welcome to My Nightmare rock & roll show before a live audience in London. Without the pioneering Cooper, there would be no Marilyn Manson or any of a number of modern derivative acts. His elaborate theatrics, encompassing lots of makeup, smoke machines, skeletons, giant spiders, a cyclops, and the disembodied voice of horror movie star Vincent Price, established benchmarks for years of subsequent hard rock band tours. By 1989, Cooper's appeal had dwindled to the point where his concerts were often small affairs that mainly attracted disaffected boys scarcely in their teens too drunk to comprehend the tongue-in-cheek aspects of Cooper's performance. By that time, some of the speakers on-stage were just hollow props. In this performance, however, Alice Cooper rocks on at the height of his fame. Songs performed include "The Awakening," "Welcome to My Nightmare," "Eighteen," "School's Out," "Only Women Bleed," and "Billion Dollar Babies." ~ Steve Blackburn, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Alice Cooper - Welcome to My Nightmare

This man is the very definition of "underrated." He was so ahead of his time, it's ridiculous. This film showcases a smart, yet certifiably insane artist (literally--he was admitted to a mental institution shortly after this film came out) whose high concept stage shows were boldly original, contemplative and tongue-in-cheek that they shot him to heights of fame he never thought he'd experience. Whenever someone mentions how cool Vincent Price's Thriller voiceovers are, I'm that guy who interrupts and says, "you know, Alice Cooper did the same thing, with FAR better results, a full DECADE before Thriller even came out." But it's okay, he finally got the recognition he deserves and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fall last year. It's kind of a minor tragedy that it took that long, but that's another discussion all together.

Very entertaining; looked like the inspiration for Rocky Horror Picture Show later. Unfortunately, the copy I saw of it was pretty damaged; it was all red-tinted and a lot of details weren't visible. Not sure if that's intentional or just due to film deterioration or the technology of the time for filming a live show. But in any case, it's a front row seat to a classic rock show :D

When I saw this movie,I thought it would be the Halloween special (and tell me if you can find that) but it sadly,was not. It was a ull-blown concert of the album and some more of his hits. Though it wasn't what I expected,it was still pretty cool.
