Rock 'N' Roll Nightmare (1987)

The Tritons head out to a secluded farmhouse to record their newest Heavy Metal album, but the band must battle with a house full of demons when the gates of hell open up beneath them. ROCK 'N' ROLL NIGHTMARE is a terrible film with a terrible cast, terrible effects, and terrible music. Jon Mikl Thor's comically overstated performance takes the cake in this one, although the dreadful performances by the rest of the cast members are equally horrible in all the right ways. It is dreadfully boring from the very beginning, frequently forgetting that it is a bad Horror movie and not just a bad 80's music video... That is, until the final climactic battle between good and evil, where Thor bears his glistening chest and studded man-thong to take on a poorly-articulated devil puppet in hand-to-hand combat in one of the most unintentionally hilarious moments ever caught on film! Using some of the worst make-up and special effects in the genre, ROCK 'N' ROLL NIGHTMARE fails on every single level imaginable, but it is still a highly enjoyable piece of late-80's trash cinema. This is a must-see, must-own Horror flick for cult film fans!

And now, for your enjoyment:



Rating: 3/10.
Entertainment: 7/10.

  3. If that was the best then the whole movie, its creators actors directors producers crew their families and friends need to be shot burned and buried upside down in a radioactive waste dump. Then flug into space for good measure.

  6. That movie looks so horrible. Maybe entertaining to some I guess but looks like it would give me a headache if I watched it.

  7. LMAO. I had never heard of this one before, but it looks freaking hilarious! Pretty bad when the "hero" has to catch the creatures that and hold them to his chest to in a failed attempt to make it look like they are attacking him.

  9. I am madly in love with ROCK N' ROLL NIGHTMARE, and why I can see the reason for your '3' rating based on technical merits, it should still get a '10' for sheer ungodly metal awesomeness.
