Storyline

A young rock band, half from England and half from the US, drop out of college and move to the Sunset Strip to chase their dreams. Living in a van, their passion and talent exceed their means to survive. An enigmatic stranger sees their true potential and emotionally manipulates them during a time of weakness. Caught in the middle of a Faustian deal, their music and controversial altercations end up influencing society beyond anything this century has seen, but can they take back control of their destiny before it's too late?

Just for not too bright teenagers
16 January 2018 | by mr_lucaspaulSee all my reviews

Some dark Gothic heavy metal bands like to use devil imagery, either visually or in their lyrics. Their fans are mostly teenagers who use that as a kind of rebellion to scare parents or adults, they form some kind of "tribes" which are quite often a way to meet like minded friends or boyfriends / girlfriends. Usually this is not something to take too seriously except from time to time like for instance when some young people committed suicide after reading too closely some of these bands lyrics. Unfortunately this film is just fluff and through a confused story line piles sex and drugs and rock roll cliches one after the other without any substance. This is a missed opportunity a more profound film about this scene could have been really interesting but this so predictable story is a bore. .
