Editorial Reviews

From director John Roecker (Disease is Punishment) comes the outrageous stop-motion animation musical comedy Live Freaky! Die Freaky! Voiced by a legion of alternative rock icons, including Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day) and Tim Armstrong (Rancid/Operation Ivy), the film is about a futuristic nomad who accidentally discovers a copy of Helter Skelter and interprets it as a biblical tome with Charles Manson as the Messiah. Flashing back to 1969, Hadie (Theo Kogan) meets Charlie (Billie Joe Armstrong) after a bad LSD trip and is immediately drawn into his family where they hatch plans to change the world through "music, murder and mayhem." Gleefully pushing the boundaries of good taste, Live Freaky! Die Freaky! also features: actress Asia Argento, Lunachick's Theo Kogan, AFI's Davey Havoc, X's John Doe, The Go-Go's Jane Wiedlin, Benji and Joel Madden of Good Charlotte, and other members of Green Day, Rancid and Blink 182. The soundtrack includes original songs performed by Billie Joe Armstrong and Jane Wiedlin. Tim Armstrong arranged the score and the songs were written by Roddy Bottum (Faith No More/Imperial Teen). DVD extras include: audio commentary with John Roecker and Billie Joe Armstrong, deleted scenes. Behind the scenes: " Making Puppets Speak", "Sountrack rehearsals and recording", "Desert Footage", storyboards, mini bios and trailer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Live Freaky has got it! May 3, 2006
Format:DVD
As depraved as this movie is, I think it's great! Anyone who thinks this movie sucks needs to lighten up a little bit and get a sense of humor. I thought is was very intertaining. Yes, some of the movie was a bit over the top, but that's what makes it fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Live Laughing! Die Laughing! November 28, 2005
Format:UMD for PSP
I literally flew across the continent (from St. John's, Newfoundland to San Francisco, California) to attend the first screening of Live Freaky! Die Freaky! I even booked the first 2 tickets to the show. Disappointed, I was not. Mingling with John Roecker (director) and members of Rancid and AFI, entering the decrepit-looking Roxy theater on the "Helter Skelter" carpet, and sitthing through the most outrageous dark comedy I've ever seen was the time of my life. Green Day's Billie Joe (my idol, for the record) was superb as the voice of Charles "Hanson", his shameless, sexual, shock-value comedy kept me in stitches, along with AFI's Davey Havok's portrayal of Sharon "Hate's" very gay hair stylist. The film does have a lack of taste, but we were all warned, so people need not complain if they choose to see it. Personaly, I loved how the entire audience would switchs from laughing hysterically to groaning with disgust (and I'm pretty sure they did, too). Basically, this is a risque, dark, shocking movie that is not for the blue collar working man (or his pretty wife). However, if you like to see people pushing the envelope and doing something completely out of whack (but still trying to make a point), then please give this movie a chance. It has gotten some rotten reviews, just remember you are your own best critic.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst movie ever March 6, 2006
Format:DVD
I don't care how punk rock this film is. I love punk and I'm a fan of Tim Armstrong and AFI. However, this film is the worst thing I've ever paid to see. I was at the San Francisco premiere and it was nice meeting everyone involved in the movie. When it came to watching the movie itself, I was completely disappointed. I like indie films, stupid humor, and the concept of DIY as much as the next person. However, this film was just done in such poor taste. The editing is terrible. The story is hard to follow. There's almost nothing I like about the movie. The only real funny part is hearing Davey Havok of A.F.I. be the voice of the gay hairstylist. Other than that, I wouldn't recommend that anyone buy this. Try to borrow it from someone else if you can help it. It's not worth $21.99. To be honest, I'd give it less than 1 star if I could but that's the lowest that the rating will go.

This movie is only for people who have so many cult-classics, that they need something new.

When a work of art shocks with the intention of teaching a lesson, it can shine. When it shocks with the intention of shocking, it loses all artisic value. The majority of the shock in Live Freaky, Die Freaky is just there to shock.

I did give it two stars though, so I have to justify that. I think that the premise of this movie was a good starting point for what could have been a brilliant, if not corny and bloody cult classic. It just didn't deliver.

There are a few people who will enjoy the movie. I'm not critisizing them. They will enjoy it for the punk voices (that's what had me interested), and the silliness. There's nothing wrong with that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Obcesnly Great March 18, 2006
By Griffin
Format:DVD
this is one of the most obscene movies I've ever seen. Offensive to the very core, and more than slightly disturbing. But over all it is an amazing movie. Though I suggest you read Helter Skelter before watching it (It makes it even funnier) It's still awesome without knowing much about the Manson Murders.

This movie is not for the weak at heart

3.0 out of 5 stars Not For the Easily Offended March 8, 2007
Format:DVD
If possible I would have given this movie a 2.5 but a 3 will do. Let me start off by saying that this movie, is well....Freaky. The stop motion animation isn't the greatest but the kind of people that will watch this movie probably won't care. The music is the best part of it, it's also the reason I bought it. It's all star cast includes punkers such a Billy Joe Armstrong, Tim Armstrong, Davey Havok, and many more. The story is pretty much of a man trying to decide if he, being a godless nomad, should worship Charles Manson when he finds the book Helter Skelter.

The story is sub-par and the acting is pretty bad and the script is that filled with gay jokes and swear words. As said before, not for the easily offended. I've had this movie for maybe around a month and I've only watched it twice. Once on my own and once with a friend. It's not something I plan on watching again for lesuire. But it is a fun movie to say you own. So 3 stars. Have a nice day.
