Storyline

After years of rotting in Joliet, Les, a wrongfully imprisoned street legend known as "The Ghoul", is released into a mad search through Chicago's back alleys for the man who slaughtered his mother and robbed him of his soul. Aided by mysterious benefactors, he must delve beneath the city into a modern labyrinth of gutters whose tendrils have grown deep while he was gone. What unfolds is a desperate tale of brute force tragedy set in the supernatural underworld of Chicago, where heroes are reduced to horror-shows, villains dream of their own demise, and good and evil prove to be antiquated concepts. Written by Rot Studios

this film is a crime thriller turned rock concert!
22 April 2017 | by josephklockeSee all my reviews

if you like rock music this film is 100% for you! this part crime thriller part gory horror part mend bending sci-fi cult classic is all tied together with a incredibly compelling original rock score!

between the amazing cinematography to the outstanding hair/make up, costumes and set design i was very impressed with the film. tip of the hat to the chicago rot cast and crew!

there were times i was confused with the plot but when i went back and watched it again the story revealed more details. this film definitely has layers of sub-plot. you have to pay attention. also, don't forget to look for the easter eggs!
