Heavy Metal Madness Hits Film
20 February 2000 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This is one of two MUST HAVE metal horror movies from the 80's the other being "Trick Or Treat". An Awesome Soundtrack In This Movie. The Story Is About A Demonic Metal Band (With Carmine Appice On Drums) Who Come To A Small Town To Start Their Concert Tour And This Town Is The Test Town Before They Head Out On The Road. All kinds of metal madness takes place. No it isn't scary but was it ever intended to be? Its also a great movie to look at to see how "dressed up" people into heavy metal used to be back in the 80's before the current fashion of looking like a greasey haired bum with hand me down clothes and piercings on every appendage. If you can rent or get a copy of this dont miss it
