A movie that any Troma fan can enjoy
16 December 2004 | by (Las Vegas) – See all my reviews

It's very much like a Troma film, it has cheap gore, bad acting, bad writing, and Lloyd Kaufman (Co-creator of Troma) in it. I personally don't like punk rock, I'm a metal guy but this was still a fun movie. If you hate punk you'll like watching all the bands die in some creative ways, if you love punk you'll like this movie even more. This movie has (from what I've heard) the highest body count ever filmed. The gore goes from too fake for my standards (after seeing Cannibal Holocaust) to holy crap how did they do that/man that was brutal! I wish more of the kills were done better, it starts like Blood Feast were the killing is off screan then you see the gory aftermath but then they hit you with some sick Maniac style effects to make up for it and the effects get better later on. Because the high body count not all the kills are very creative and a few are blood less but overall there is some wicked sick stuff to make up for it. There are lots of major punk bands in this movie and they do perform, to name a few NOFX, Tsunami Bomb, and Andrew WK there are at least 30 bands in this movie. The plot is simple a reporter gets to do an article on the Van's Warped Tour and bands start dying but the greedy man in charge (Lloyd Kaufman) will not stop the show, so the reporter must find out who the killer is. Pretty much every 5 minutes a person gets killed off so there isn't to much boring dialog, which is the Achilles heel of splatter films (too much talking between the gore which PRH avoids). I hope they make a sequel if there any bands left alive that is. This movie has it all swords, cannibals, zombies, tons of gore, a high body count, loud music with attitude, it's the ideal movie for punk rock fans and fans of low budget splatter films. All in all I would recommend it, especially if it's less than 10 bucks. It's a good movie to invite your friends over to see, order a pizza, and drink some whiskey (as long
