Obscure "slasher" flick that plays out more like a live action Scooby Doo episode..
15 February 2009 | by (Murfreesboro, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Hard Rock Nightmare is a rather obscure entry in the "rock 'n' roll" slasher sub-genre, and not a very good one at that. The plot concerns a rock band who decide to head to the lead singer's family cabin to practice and they are soon picked off by a werewolf, or someone dressed as a werewolf. This boring "horror" film was brought to us by Dominick Brascia and Steven Baio, the creators behind the wonderfully, but fun inept "Evil Laugh". Mr. Brascia's second directorial feature was rather disappointing. It's slow-paced and uneventful and the deaths were unconvincing. It also lacked the zany charm that made "Evil Laugh" so wonderful. The ending was lifted right from an old Scooby Doo episode. I won't give away the ending. However, it is worth seeking out only because of it's obscurity.
