Some dark Gothic heavy metal bands like to use devil imagery, either visually or in their lyrics. Their fans are mostly teenagers who use that as a kind of rebellion to scare parents or adults, they form some kind of "tribes" which are quite often a way to meet like minded friends or boyfriends / girlfriends. Usually this is not something to take too seriously except from time to time like for instance when some young people committed suicide after reading too closely some of these bands lyrics. Unfortunately this film is just fluff and through a confused story line piles sex and drugs and rock roll cliches one after the other without any substance. This is a missed opportunity a more profound film about this scene could have been really interesting but this so predictable story is a bore. .
