New York City rock bands and promoters (all playing themselves) face off against animated insect villains from outer space determined to put female rock stars into bondage scenarios in an extremely unique punk rock musical comedy.
The "hair metal" explosion of the 1980s was actually engineered by some very silly-looking animated insects from outer space who later killed Kurt Cobain and made it look like a suicide. Now they begin kidnapping, tying up, torturing, and brainwashing hot-looking multi-racial New York rock chicks in an attempt to reclaim their former glory. The director is a former Nickelodeon cartoonist, but expect lots of cursing in this bizarre underground cult movie that manages to be dark and light simultaneously. Includes much actual concert footage and scenes shot in basements of rock clubs and at performer's homes. Written by
Both a parody of the current zombie movie craze, and a scathing attack on the conformity of the contemporary punk rock scene, "Punk Rock Zombie Kung Fu Catfight" is a low-budget laugh riot. From the "warning" at the beginning, to the thrilling battle at the end, you'll find yourself guffawing and chuckling. The special effects are silly, the music is rocking, and the performances are not Oscar worthy, but still entertaining. And there are cameos by many NY rock/performance celebrities like Mango, Shauna Lane (her highly inappropriate dance is one of the movie's highlights), Bex Schwartz, The Minors, The Sex Slaves, The M-Word, The Drive and more. Oh, and how could I forget Mr. Creepo! He really shines in this film. Lots of sexy females, real cat fights, and a plot reminiscent of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan make this a must-see film. Well, should-see at least.
