Editorial Reviews

The sleepy little town of Mill Basin is about to get more than it bargained for. The satanic heavy metal rock band Black Roses is coming through to raise hell... literally! After making a deal with the Devil himself, the band's music demonically possesses the kids in the audience, turning them into blood-thirsty demons. The blood flows as they start killing their parents and causing chaos at their local high school. Culminating in a fiery battle between man and ultimate evil, BLACK ROSES is considered a MUST HAVE metal horror movie from the 80's (IMDB.COM).
 
From the director of ROCK 'N' ROLL NIGHTMARE comes the next heavy-metal horror classic re-mastered in high definition. BLACK ROSES features an early film role for Vincent (THE SOPRANOS) Pastore and classic rock fans will love seeing Carmine Appice (of VANILLA FUDGE) on-screen as one of the demonic Black Roses band members! The heavy metal soundtrack features original music from LIZZIE BORDEN.

Customer Reviews

A must-own for any 80's cult horror movie aficionado!

I have to admit I haven't watched this movie since I was a metal hating punk rock teenager, but the soundtrack is awful, and it's just a dumb movie.
Bartok Kinski
The human disguised, Demon rock musicans really put on a show and terrorize a small bible thumping town!

Black Roses (John Fasano, 1988)

The eighties were, briefly, awash in rock and roll horror pictures, and as a hair metal fan back in the day, I was happier than a pig in Poison album covers. They ranged from the sublime (Hard Rock Zombies, still one of my favorite bad movies of all time) to the ridiculous (Trick or Treat, whose best feature was its Fastway soundtrack). Black Roses was firmly on the "ridiculous" side of the equation, though I didn't remember it being nearly as awful as the IMDB crowd make it out to be (as I write this, its IMDB rating is 2.6). So I grabbed a copy of it a couple of nights ago and gave it a look for the first time in twenty-odd years. And I was right, it's not that bad. Yes, it's ridiculous, but like all bad movies that transcend their badness, that's a part of its charm.

The admittedly lame plot: a bunch of (badly-made-up) demons have been sent from Hell to gather disciples. What better way to do that than to form a hair metal band? Their first concert goes horribly awry thanks to interference from the authorities, so after a quick hush job they decide to take the stage next in a small, out-of-the-way place. Of course, they also adopt human guise. Their lead singer morphs into Damien (standup comic, singer, and Broadway actor Sal Viviano), the kind of hair-metal Adonis one would expect to see back in 1988; the make-up folks probably spent more time making Viviano's hair that feathery than they did with the demon make-up in the opening scene.

Oh boy. This one has some serious cheese-factor going for it. Not your best, not your worst. Certainly a good example of a bad 80's horror flick, but one with at least a few redeeming points. Some may love it for the 80's hair-metal vibe that's rocking the whole time, some for the random nudity. I see it as an "average-at-best" production when compared to contemporaries of it's genre.

I am a big fan of the 80s music oriented horror films such as Rock n' Roll Nightmare, Slumber Party Massacre 2, Terror on Tour, Shock 'em Dead (which has yet to see a dvd release), Trick or Treat, etc. and this is my favorite one. Rock n' Roll Nightmare is probably a close 2nd place, but this film has better special effects, funnier characters, and is even more bizarre and unpredictable. I ordered this DVD as soon as I heard it was coming out. My VHS copy was one of my most treasured films because it was so hard to find and long out of print. I am glad this one didn't slip into obscurity.

Love the scenes with the band Lizzy Borden playing in the school auditorium!
This is definitely a classic cult fun film.
