Amazing. "Hard Rock Zombies" is truly amazing. Before I go to far please note that my 3 star review is for the film, as well as the DVD presentation. Meaning that, as far as awful films go, this would get 5 stars without a doubt. Seriously, this film features:
1. Nazi Midgets
2. Awful Hair Metal Wannabes
3. Octogenarian Sex
4. A love story sub-plot with strong overtones of pedophilia
5. Hideous dialogue
6. Completely inept special effects
I sat in awe for 90 minutes as this film played out. I'm tempted to watch it again this evening just to make sure I didn't miss any of the on screen awfulness. If you are a fan of awful cinema, you must own "Hard Rock Zombies".
The DVD release is simply awful. The color is faded, scratchy & jumps around. The sound is muddy, and at times it's impossible to understand the dialogue. In short it's everything Quentin Tarantino tried to do with "Grindhouse"...but this is the real thing. If you are a fan of the film, this probably won't effect your viewing experience too much. I recommend this film for fans of awful horror films, but try to find a used copy if possible.

Yes, there may be something wrong with me, but I love bad movies. The more times you see the crew in the shot the better. We bought this movie at the local supermarket last night and I have never laughed so hard in my life. The music is pure cheese, the plot is hysterical, the acting is downright scary. I even checked it out on imdb and all the actors had to be the director's friends, because they have not acted in anything since 1984 when the movie came out. This movie + alcohol + friends = a fabulous time!

I did this review judging that you've already seen the film, I didn't go into the story aspect of the film.

Being a fan of Hard Rock Zombies for a few years now, me and my friends have been awaiting a DVD release of this film. Well now it's here, and here's my review.

My initial reaction while hearing the first key drum beats to the opening track was oh god, it sounds awful. I didn't expect much sound wise after turning over the DVD box and saw AC-3 sound, this normally means in my head the sound isn't going to be great. At the time I had it running though my 5.1 surround sound receiver. After listen to a few minutes of the movie, I decided it would be best just to let my TV speakers handle the audio.

Then after my reaction to the sound it was on to the picture. As well my initial reaction to the sound, the picture quality wasn't a good one either. The opening shoot features a road zipping by into a tunnel, then the title credit, which is red instead of white. It just looks like the film this was taken from wasn't well preserved, a lot of new lines and hairs if you will, were beset on to the picture that didn`t exists on the US VHS version. After watching awhile the image did seem to be sharper then the VHS. No VHS fuzz, but still it's far from perfect. A lot of technical errors, on a few occasions the film would just lock up for a seconds. Then it had a few clipping issues where the 75% of the screen would flash white. Then a few static clips though out the picture.

Now onto my biggest problem with this DVD. Maybe I'm nuts, but I find the music numbers in this movie just awesome.

This movie deserves five stars for being so bad. It has everything the worst movie ever made should have: Zombies in bad makeup, bad acting, 80's hair band music, Hitler, midgets, and Lisa Toothman (yummy!). I was happy to find this on DVD as I remember seeing this with friends in Junior High (we snuck in). Sadly the dvd transfer sucks. It looks like they used a worn out VHS (or Betamax) tape as the source. I couldn't even enjoy the shower scene. This movie needs to be digitally remastered so everyone can enjoy the worst movie ever made!

Hard Rock Zombies (Krishna Shah, 1985)

When I was but a wee media critic, there were three films, more than any others, that cemented my love of awful, awful movies. First, there was 1972's Beware! The Blob, directed by Larry Hagman (the recent DVD reissue trumpets it as "the film J.R. shot!"), one of the few movies I've seen over fifty times in my life. So many bad special effects all piled into one place, with so many quality seventies actors hamming it up. How can you not love it? Then came 1977's Shriek of the Mutilated, which I was lucky enough to catch on late-night TV one night when I was in seventh grade (1981? 82? don't know). I say "lucky" because it seems from the DVD that the master print of the film has become horribly degraded, so at least I had a chance to see it in all its original... okay, "splendor" is not the right word. It's an awful movie in every sense of the word, but for a movie I didn't see for over twenty years, between that one TV viewing and the release of the DVD, to have left that many indelible images on my mind, there had to have been something transcendent about it. And then there was Hard Rock Zombies, one of the mainstays of my high school years. I have no idea how many times I rented this from my local video store. All of my friends and I could quote from it at length. It's the kind of bad movie that you know is bad, but you just can't stop watching. I hadn't seen it since those days, but here's another case where a recent DVD release has reaffirmed my love for the awful. In fact, it's even better, in a horrible way, than I remembered it being from back in the day.

The story concerns a band, led by charismatic (and insufferably-coifed) lead singer Jessie (Silent Rage frontman and Chippendales model E. J. Curcio, known these days as E. J.
