Eye Candy With Skeletons!!
7 October 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Do yourself a favor - forget about the plot of this film and see it for

what it was meant to be seen for: eye candy. That's why Imax was

invented! This film is especially favorable, seeing as how it's in 3-D.

The story is about Johnny, the son of a former rock star mother who left

when he was only 3 years old and totally kept out-of-touch with him

until she died. Upon her death, Johnny recieved a letter from her lawyer

stating that he had inherited her castle and that he needed to be there

immediately - that's where the film starts. Johnny's limo pulls up to

the castle and upon his entry, Johnny discovers it's all an evil trap

set up by the devil himself to get Johnny to sign a contract to be a

famous rock star like his mother. What ensues is a journey through the

tortured lives of those who tried to renig on their contracts. The film

not very graphic, but can be engrossing. There's lots of skeletons,

creepy little green cherubs, weird singing monkey robots and Mephisto,

Mr. D's right-hand-man. So the plot is kind of corny, but this film is

still worth seeing - it's like a better version of Disneyland's Haunted

Mansion, except with somewhat of a plot! The music is EXCELLENT! Belgian

band Arid's lead singer, Jasper Steverlinck, plays Johnny and Kyoko

Baerston of Lunascape (also Belgian) does an excellent job portraying

Johnny's mother (and she Goth-dances too!). At the end of it all we're

treated to a live performance of Arid's "Little Things of Venom," an

excellent song which permeats throughout the Haunted Castle. Check it

out!!! 10 out of 10..
