Trivia

Alice Cooper originally conceived a "Welcome to My Nightmare" film that was radically different from what the album, concert and this tie-in TV special ultimately became. Cooper met with director Daniel Mann to discuss the project on the set of Journey Into Fear (1975), where he was introduced to Vincent Price, who wound up taking a pivotal role in the ensuing versions of Cooper's "Nightmare."

Alice Cooper is one of the greatest rockers of all time, and is probably the penultimate theatrical shock-rocker legend. I rented this in middle school and thought it was so kickass. It's always neat when somebody takes a handful of songs and makes a trippy horror movie out of them, as is the case here. Some of the songs showcased are among the best of Alice, but some of them were (even in my opinion) some of his lesser musical moments. At the same time, one of the great things about "Alice Cooper: The Nightmare" is how what becomes musically weak at times remains visually strong throughout. Vincent Price is one of the greatest actors associated with horror, so it would make sense to have him introduce Alice Cooper's classic horror rock, and it all amounts to a fun, freaky blast that I would highly recommend to all the weirdos out there... like me!
