Storyline

This horror movie begins with rock star Billy Eye (Tray Loren) losing his sanity and killing his colleagues at a recording studio. Billy is tried, found guilty and executed. The woman who testified against him at his murder trial is a successful singer with a group called Rocktober Blood. Two years have gone by, and just when she thinks the horror of the murder case is dead and buried, someone that looks a lot like Billy starts to terrorize her. Written by Ørnås

Blood on the guitar.
22 September 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Billy "Eye" Harper is a hard rocker who killed 25 people and was later sentenced to death and executed.The only survivor of Billy's rampage is a part-time singer Lynn Starling.Two years ago Lynn wants to go with her new band Headmistress on Rocktober Blood tour.But Billy is not dead and he starts killing people around her..."Rocktober Blood" is one of the better heavy metal/slasher movies of 80's.There is a bit of tension and some lines are priceless for example ""I want your hot steaming pussy blood all over my face".The killings include eviscerations,a nasty impaling and a pretty good decapitation.The acting is terrible,but I must say that I enjoyed hard rocking soundtrack of "Rocktober Blood".7 out of 10.
