Plot Summary

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 Chris Rutkowski

Quotes John Triton: [losing his patience] You're wasting my time, bub.
Demon: This is incredible! It is almost no fun to kill one so stupid as to not know who it is that slays him! You are in my domain, and I will kill you as I have killed your pitiful friends!
John Triton: [annoyed] Aw, you killed no one, bub!
Demon: WHAAAT?
John Triton: Or is it less familiar to call you Beelzebub? Or do you prefer Abaddon; or as the Hindus called you, Shaitan; or as you are known to answer to, Ahriman? Belial? Apollyon? Asmodeus? Because, you see... I *do* know you.
