Storyline

At an old farmhouse, a family mysteriously dissapears at the hands of evil. Years later, hair metal band The Tritons comes to the farmhouse, whose barn now features a 24-track recording studio. Lead singer John Triton gets the band to perform their first night in the farmhouse after dinner, and weird little beasties suddenly appear, and strange things start to happen. Band members (and their tag along girlfriends) begin to act strangely and vanish one by one. Soon, only John Triton remains, and he holds a secret. Finally, the evil shows itself and a battle between heaven and hell ensues.... Written by Chris Rutkowski <rcd1215@mail.purduenc.edu>

WE ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE!!!!!!!!!!
11 September 2004 | by (IN) – See all my reviews

Let me start off by saying that if you don't die from laughter during the last 15 or so minutes of this film, then you are not human.

Starring muscle-bound hero Jon-Mikl Thor, this film opens with dialogue that can't be heard over the musical score and a skeleton popping out of an oven. I mean, this is an EXTREMELY fake-looking skeleton. And the camera lingers on it forever. Then, we get an extremely long van sequence that is shown from multiple camera angles. Yep. Then, we get into a house, which is filled with a few puppet creatures and hilariously bad rehearsals for songs like "ENERGY GETS ME WHERE I WANT TO BE" or something.

Soon, the drummer turns into a demon. And people start to die. And... stuff. But none of that matters, because the ending features Thor wearing a spiked leather thong, boots, wristbands, and a cape while Satan throws Play-Dough starfish at him. Then, the two lock arms and circle around for about 4 minutes. Then, there's fireworks. And the words "I'll see you again, Old Scratch."

That's all you really need to know. Do whatever you can to get this film. A masterpiece.
