Jimmy lives with his dysfunctional father. In high school, Jimmy keeps to himself and is considered weird because of his overblown interest in heavy metal, horror and the occult. His mother meant the world to him and since her death, he has been obsessed with contacting her soul through black magic. At the local cemetery he gets dangerously close, but is interrupted by something very powerful. His new classmate, Amir, persuades him to impress the school's most popular girls, Louise and Anna, with a secret occult seance. The four of them accidentally unleash an evil force. Only Jimmy can sense what's going on. The evil force wants to raise the dead, including his mom. Frantically, he tries to convince the others of the impending doom, but ends up alienating himself even further. He realizes that he can not prevent it alone. In order to stop the dead, he must first learn to coexist with the living. Written by Sohail A. Hassan

This is rock n' roll!
28 April 2019 | by tobz-841-790725See all my reviews

A highschool kid unwittingly unleashes an evil spirit, when trying to get in contact with his dead mother. Now he's on ends with his only friend, the nerdy new kid, and the popular girl tries to stay even further away from him than she did before. He has to find a way to mend ways with his mate, maybe get that one kiss in store - oh yeah, and save his mother's soul from eternal damnation, and save the town from a zombie apocalypse. Highschool is hard!

Holy crap, this film is rock n' roll, through and through! The love for the 'Eighties cinema is oozing out of it, but without trying in the slightest to pretend that's it's from that time. It's a horror comedy that actually works in both directions, and it's a (almost) no-budget film that looks (almost) high-level pro. It's not filled with tongue-in-cheek references to other films, and it's not meta. It's just damn fine entertainment through and through, made by a love for the medium. It was great being able to catch this in the cinema, and while it may be some time yet before it gets there, I can't wait to have it on my shelf and rewatch this. Had I had this as a kid, I would have absolutely loved it. Now, as an adult, I'm happy to say I still absolutely love it! Stay metal!
