Did You Know?

Trivia

During one of the early shots of the Sunset Strip, one of the venues shown is The Viper Room. While this is a venue that hosts shows, it is perhaps more infamous as the place where River Phoenix died of an overdose; this is eerily appropriate given the nature of this film. See more »

Goofs

In the Las Vegas scenes, the venue is listed as "Garland Amphitheater." There is no venue by this name in Las Vegas. See more »

Quotes

Ricky Rollins: Okay, okay, fine. So, what else do you do?
Hawk: Shit hits the fan, I'm the fan.
Ricky Rollins: Oh, good.

Why the negative reviews? It's not a perfect movie but well acted for a young inexperienced cast
11 July 2018 | by sophiexjaneSee all my reviews

I don't usually write reviews for films on here but I had to for this one, purely to counter balance the many negative reviews! Is the movie perfect, no, but it's actually pretty good if you like a little more 'indie' films and like alternative music. This movie isn't a 'supernatural' film but more like a thriller message about the dark side of the 'rock and roll music industry' and how wanting fame has it's costs on yourself and those around you.

I also thought the inexperienced actors were better actors and more convincing than the 'veterans'. I hadn't heard of Andy Biersack or Ben Bruce before this but for musicians to act they did a really good job and were very watchable, funny and convincing. The soundtrack is also very good plus 'The Relentless' bands music too has been on repeat since (Remington Leith's voice is perfect for Johnny Faust').

Overall it's not a bad movie, it's just more a film you'd stream at home than go and see at the movie theatre. I actually hope there is a follow up/TV series that had been suggested as I'd definitely watch it.

So if you're willing to not take yourself and this movie too seriously then I'd recommend watching it
