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>

"It sounded like it came from down here...let's go back upstairs."
11 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

Why a 9 you ask? Because my 1-10 scale is different, and my dreams not like yours. B-movies are on a different scale system, and this one is very special, mainly because of the ending and the totally radical Jon-Mikl Thor soundtrack. But the ending... I won't spoil it, but it will shock even the most hardened b-movie connoisseur. You WILL be left asking yourself questions like:

Jon-Mikl Thor; Genius or Madman?

Jon-Mikl Thor; Was that a skinny woman's nightie you were sporting during the (GNARLY) song 'Energy'?

Jon-Mikl Thor; Is my new-found fear of showers only a TEMPORARY side-effect from watching the movie?

Jon-Mikl Thor; Based on the lyrics to your (RADICAL) song 'Energy', do you think it's accurate to say you SOMETIMES act like a fool? And did you say 'I feel small when on shrooms'? 'Cause sometimes when I'm on shrooms my head feels small, then really big, then small again...

Jon-Mikl Thor; Is that hairspray manufactured on our plane of existence or just in the heavens? That super-hold hairspray could only be created by the Gods themselves! By the beard of Zeus!

The answer to all of these questions and more is YES! Even the ones that weren't yes or no questions. Jon-Mikl Thor is the freakin' INTERCESSOR! You'll take whatever answer he has to give and you'll freakin' like it or he'll cast you out of Valhalla and laugh at you! That's Jon-Mikl Thor! High on his mountain!

Weird, stupid fun.
