Mary Beth McDonough,
A baby sitter is stuck watching over a young brat on Halloween night who keeps playing vicious pranks on her. To add to her trouble the boy's deranged father has escaped from an asylum and is planning on making a visit.
At an old farmhouse, a family mysteriously dissapears at the hands of evil. Years later, hair metal band The Tritons comes to the farmhouse, whose barn now features a 24-track recording studio. Lead singer John Triton gets the band to perform their first night in the farmhouse after dinner, and weird little beasties suddenly appear, and strange things start to happen. Band members (and their tag along girlfriends) begin to act strangely and vanish one by one. Soon, only John Triton remains, and he holds a secret. Finally, the evil shows itself and a battle between heaven and hell ensues....Written by

The film came in 10 minutes short of its required running time. So director John Fasano and star John Mikl-Thor filmed sequences of John Triton driving the band in the van to the farm. Hence, the prolonged opening shots of the van driving to the farm. See more »
When John searches downstairs, he's wearing stage make-up and his silver jacket. When he goes upstairs, he's clean-faced and wearing a sweater. Then when he goes back downstairs, he's wearing the make-up and jacket again. See more »

rock n roll nightmare remarks from filmmaker Cindy Cirile aka Sorrell
Naturally I have to give my meager offering of a film 10 stars! It means so much to me to read about how much people love this insane little family flick⭐️ When I say "family flick," I mean an almost zero budget film made BY a family with a lot of help from their friends! I should say: our friends. Great people like Jon-Mikl Thor, who I've known for over 30 years now.
This little feature was the brainchild of my 22 year old husband, John Fasano, who passed away in July, 2014. The two "Johns," John Fasano and Jon Thor, became bosom buddies--and Fasano, whose life goal was to make monster movies--got a company to give us $40 grand to make a horror flick with Jon Thor, featuring his music. And--a lot of home made monsters. Obligatory tits were enforced on us by the money men--as they were in "Black Roses."
A few things for fans of the film--as well as its detractors. First off--both John Fasano and Jon Thor never touched drugs or alcohol--on or off the set. No one was "high." I can't use that as any excuse for why the film is so bad!
Family: without the Cirile-Fasano-D'Angelo clan--there would've been no RRNM. My basement (Cirile-Fasano) was the "cookery" for the, um--not-so-special FX! My brother, Jim Cirile--who played Stig, the drummer, had his own cookery and whipped up the "chicken monster," the "Lu-Ann" prosthetic--and the paper-mâché stove monster. Someone on this thread mentioned the scene at the beginning--where my character, Carole ( for Carole Lombard!) is burned instantly in the stove--while my real and reel-life son, Jesse D'Angelo--screams at the top of the stairs. Did anyone get that this little boy at the beginning comes back later as the wolf boy who makes a few appearances later on??
My bro, who plays the Aussie drummer Stig--is a huge fan of Monty Python. He was going for an absurd over the top accent. His sudden change to a deep American accent was scripted!! Somehow--it was meant to indicate that he was now possessed! What can I tell you??
John Fasano loved horror movies--but he hated blood and gore. As do I! This is why RRNM, Black Roses, The Jitters, and Zombie nightmare are all mostly "monster movies," not horror or slasher flicks. John went on to work on some great films--and his writing improved a LOT! He was nominated for an award for best screenplay for "The Hunchback" with Richard Harris and Mandy Patinkin. He wrote the shooting script for "Tombstone." He also wrote "Darkness Falls," among other things. He became a brilliant writer.
I'm feeling kind of "moony," because John hasn't even been gone a year yet. He loved this movie--and was very excited that people thought it was fun.⭐️
Yeah--this was a family project. No food budget. No costume budget. Thor brought his own jockstrap and hairspray. It was 20 degrees F in that frigid barn where Thor fights the Evil One. I was videotaping the scene where Thor battles the horrific starfish. I could say nothing about it then--and all I can say now is: "oh, boy!those things did NOT work like they were supposed to!
Thanks for watching our most humble family excursion into low-budget 80s hair rock horror. Soooo sorry for the van scene! For the last scene... For so much! Have fun with it! Cindy Cirile
