Video From Hell is a collage of everything ZAPPA.
15 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

Frank Zappa's Video From Hell is a must see for Zappa fans. It has clips from some of his other movies like 200 Motels and Uncle Meat and it also has some of the material he was working on at the time (1985). Zappa's humor is seen throughout the movie but it is at its best during the Baltimore, Maryland obscenity in music trials. He really makes them look like idiots. But no Zappa is complete without a kick-ass guitar solo. This movie has Zappa and Steve Vai battling it out on stage in an unbelievable performance. The visuals in this movie are great. A total trippers movie!!
