So horrible it falls off the bad scale, and lands on the good one!!!, 21 September 2005
Author: ifitrocks from United States

Brothers and Sisters of Rock and Roll!! Hear my words!! Go forth and rent this masterpiece!! If you have no idea who John Thor is let me explain. He's the inventor of Muscle-rock. He's been around since the early seventies, and still tours and releases albums. Manowar, Iron Maiden, Wasp, even Kiss cannot deny being influenced by him. He was even a bass player for a band called Iron Falcon years before Maiden formed. I'm telling you this to better explain the film. An 80's metal band go to an old house to record an album. It's possessed, and demons start killing people. In between death scenes the band rocks out. Thor himself wrote and produced the film and soundtrack. That's really all you need to know, because nothing else in the movie makes a lick of sense. The direction, acting, special effects, and script???, are absolute pieces of trash. That's what allows Thors stage presence to really shine. It's really just a long music-video that has a horror story thrown in. The music is classic, if you like that style, and if you don't you shouldn't be watching it in the first place. I had the pleasure of seeing Thor in 2005, and was blown away. The amount of heart that he puts into a show is truly amazing. Even though people say this movie was over-the-top ridiculous, that's always been Thor's style, and you can't fault him for being true to himself. If you love comic books, glam metal, and mythology(and I hope everyone does) this is the crown-jewel of entertainment. An absurd good time!!
