In the hot summer of 1988, against the backdrop of mass hysteria over satanic ritualistic homicides, the leather-clad metalhead, Alexis, and her best friends, Val and Beverly, embark on a road trip to a heavy-metal concert. But, there, a chance encounter with a trio of young hard rockers will pave the way for seduction, deceit, and murder, as nothing is what it appears to be. Now, blood stains the walls of Alexis' secluded mansion in the woods. Who shall live, and who shall die after summoning the darkness?Written by
Never have I ever heard Cliff Burton mentioned this much
It's the late 80s. Three young, attractive girls head to a rock concert and meet a few seemingly harmless metalheads. After playing a drinking game of "never have I ever ...", the evening doesn't quite go to plan ...
It has elements of Red State and 68 Kill but probably not quite as good as either movie. It is, however, well written and acted and the characters are likeable and interesting, so I found myself enjoying it throughout. It doesn't get too dark; the mood remains tense but hardly nerve-shredding and the gory scenes are in-keeping with the general vibe, ie. it's not gross-out horror.
The ending is perhaps a bit less well-coordinated than the rest of the movie but reasonably decent all the same.
It's a good light-horror popcorn flick with tension and laughs in the right places and will probably prove popular.
