Head banging horror fun.

Two years after heavy rock star Billy "Eye" Harper is executed for the murder of twenty five people, his ex-girlfriend Lynn Starling, now lead singer of Billy's old band, finds herself stalked by a man she believes to be the dead rocker.

If you want a film that is the embodiment of cheesy '80s horror, look no further than Rocktober Blood, a silly slasher that couldn't be more '80s if it were wearing day-glo legwarmers and playing with a Rubik's cube. From the opening scene, in which Billy "Eye" Harper (Tray Loren) belts out his new number 'I'm Back', to the ridiculous rock gig finalé, the film is a total hoot, a not-in-the-least-bit-frightening melange of gaudy fashion, body popping, break dancing, big-hair heavy metal, hokey gore, gratuitous nudity and sexy aerobics routines.

The plot is pure nonsense, the direction lacks finesse, and the performances range from the mediocre to the downright awful, but it's almost impossible not to have a good time with a film that features not one but TWO nude scenes from its lead actress (in her one and only screen role, Donna Scoggins takes both a naked jacuzzi and a bubble bath), includes several half-decent songs in their entirety, incorporates a ridiculous twist into the story, and ends with a handful of grisly murders being performed on stage in front of a cheering crowd of rock fans unaware that the killings are real.

6.5 out of 10, rounded up to 7 for the hilariously bad freeze-frame ending.
