Aliens land in the mythical town of "Speelburgh, U.S.A" searching for the source of rock & roll. What they find is a gang of teenagers, led by Dee Dee (the inimitable Pia Zadora) and Frankie, along with Frankie's posse/rock band, the Pack. The leader of the aliens takes a shine to Dee Dee and all sorts of trouble breaks out. Written by Chris Holland <stomptokyo@aol.com>

During the filming, Marc Jackson had an adverse reaction to dental work and wound up with a swollen cheek. Production was shuffled to accommodate, but some facial swelling is noticeable just before the aliens steal the earthlings' clothes. See more »

User Reviews

forget Xanadu, forget Roller Boogie, even Grease 2. This is the worst musical in the history of time.

I'm not kidding. This one is appallingly bad. Where to start? It really doesn't matter, this movie sucks on every level, so by all means, watch it! Enjoy it!

A few things in it's favour (well, two):

As usual, the Bad Guys Band is much better than the lame heroes-(or are they?)-band. What can I say? Frantic 80's Rockabilly/psychobilly (well, somewhat frantic) is just a lot cooler than toecurling 80's electronic awful 'rock'.

Also, 'When the Rain begins to fall' has been a long time favourite of mine. It's used twice, the first time in a totally unrelated videoclip featering Jermaine Jackson Himself, the second in a tagged-on unrelated musical number with the bad-boy-turned-good lipsynching Jermaines part.

In short, watch it, you'll be amazed.
