Storyline

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 Nick Riganas

LET the 1980s' DOGS LIE, ALREADY
10 August 2020 | by reendogSee all my reviews

Once again, a terrible plot, worse acting, and seriously bad, over-the-top, trying-too-hard '80s references. Scant, terrible soundtrack. Too much forced, obvious use of Hot Topic T-shirts...

This film was apparently made by people who didn't live in the 1980s, have bad memories of the '80s, or weren't in the "cool kid" club, then.

Dear Everyone trying to reproduce the 1980s:

Just stop it, already. You're ridiculous.
