Not bad for a basic cable horror themed show
13 December 2007 | by (The land of the Bunyips) – See all my reviews

The tagline here reads "Imagine "The Twilight Zone" on Rock 'n' Roll." I wouldn't go that far, but it was amusing for what it was. I guess this was a show that aired on VH-1, and it's about what you'd expect of a scripted series on a cable music channel. One fun episode features two metalheads who end up in "disco hell." Another stars Eric Roberts and Chris Masterson as dueling music-lovin' serial killers from two different generations who go at each other (very similar to the "Pick Me Up" MOH episode, really.) My favorite one is about an obnoxious rock star who trashes his hotel suite every night to tick off the sweet elderly room service lady, who has some tricks up her own sleeve. The last episode is the only one with a serious tone, starring Judd Nelson as a record exec who gets a "calling" whenever he hears talent that will hit it big. Unfortunately for his up and coming acts, they all kick the bucket in some godawful way as soon as their records start to sell. Overall, it isn't anything groundbreaking or frightening, but it's an amusing show that most rock fans can probably appreciate.
