Critic Reviews for The Ghastly Love of Johnny X

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (2)

  • "Ghastly Love" tries to work the same campy vibe as "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" but learns how hard that is to pull off.

    April 28, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • What makes this film work is the passion Paul Bunnell injects into it; he obviously loves and is a connoisseur of the genres he pays homage to.

    April 15, 2019 | Rating: 7.9/10 | Full Review…
  • An affectionate and consistently amusing homage to a whole bunch of movies that probably shouldn't go together.

    August 22, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Nothing here makes much sense or strives to. What's worse (or better) is that any scene with more than three lines of dialogue will have you craving a copy of 'Jane Eyre' to reconstitute your brain cells.

Audience Reviews for The Ghastly Love of Johnny X

  • Oct 29, 2013
    Alien juvenile delinquents are exiled to earth, where they scheme to control a "resurrection suit" that can bring a recently deceased rock and roll star back from the dead. In black and white with musical numbers. The hepcat influences here are so cool you root for the movie to work, but the incoherent script, flat musical numbers and lame attempts at comedy lead to nowheresville. Still, there are a few campy kicks along the way, including "The Office"'s Creed Bratton as an unlikely rock idol.

    A 50's B-movie made in the 2010's. It had its moments, but all in all I was a bit disappointed.
