Sammi Curr was an infamous rock star who died under mysterious circumstances. Now, he wants to come back to life. Doing so requires possessing radio waves and automobiles, and making a few human sacrifices.
At a farmhouse in the middle of nowhere, a hopeful hair-metal band seeking inspiration to record their upcoming new LP will soon find themselves in a furious confrontation against the Prince of Darkness himself.
A baby sitter is stuck watching over a young brat on Halloween night who keeps playing vicious pranks on her. To add to her trouble the boy's deranged father has escaped from an asylum and is planning on making a visit.
Hard rock idol Sammi Curr burns to death in a hotel fire. His biggest fan, Lakeridge High School student and resident metal head Eddie Weinbauer is devastated by the news and turns to local radio DJ "Nuke" for emotional support. After a heated discussion about the deceased rock star, Nuke presents Eddie with a rare demo record, the last ever recorded by Sammi and the only copy in existence. Overwhelmed by Nuke's generosity, Eddie accepts the gift without hesitation, unaware of it's dark role in things to come. After constant humiliation and a near drowning at the hands of school bully Tim Hainy and his sports jock friends, Eddie becomes enraged and vows revenge on all those who have wronged him, much to the dismay of love interest, Leslie and best friend, Roger. Alone in his room with feelings of rage and retribution racing through his mind, Eddie places the new record onto his stereo and is shocked to discover that he can communicate with the deceased rock star when it is rotated ...

when Eddie's mom is in his room, when the stereo starts playing and while she's trying to stop it, she lowers every equalizer potentiometer.
When she goes out of the room, the potentiometers are back in their original place. See more »

Hi Eddie. We spent the entire morning on janitorial detail. You'd be amazed at what people stick under their desks.

The glorious 80's! Only films like TRICK OR TREAT were produced in the decade of long hair, bizarre clothing, colors everywhere, heavy metal, and the slasher movies. The 80's feeling is always present through the movie as all of the popular elements of this decade appear in almost every scene.
This is an entertaining mid 80's horror film. The plot could be very popular if used today. Eddie's mistake was to listen everytime to heavy metal. His passion for the head banging music started a series of crimes, supernatural situations, and the release of an evil spirit of a psycho.
I can think of some metal bands with hidden messages but as silly as it sounds, I'm not that brave to try to play their tapes backwards. Brrrrr. Ozzy Osbourne, the "Prince of Darkness" 's appereance is great, it's appreciated by his fans. As a die hard horror fan, I enjoyed most of it's meant to be scary moments. But in particular I love the scene where the spirit appears as a green fog or something touches in a sexual way a Tiffany Amber Thiesen look alike in a dirty way if you know what I mean. What a perv the spirit resulted!
This is great 80's cheese, watch it for some mindless fun. 5/10.
