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
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
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 Genius Pop Culture Satire ! February 11, 2006
Ok..enough with the "Red State" reviews..this film is brilliant !!..and hello people!..its supposed to be offensive and in bad taste ! John Roecker delves into the depths of pop culture with great zeal and comes up with a hilarious social commentary on media obsession. Everything works here from the witty songs to the re-imagining of all those claymation characters from those holiday specials from the 60s and 70s, who in this film have turned onto the Brady Bunch from hell better known as The Manson Family. Roecker drops quite a few symbolic messages in this film if youre smart enough to catch them, its not just a gross out film..this is an artist saying something about the enviroment he sees. I feel we all have a sick and twisted side to ourselves and I think John Roecker is just one of the brave who is willing to show it. So call him sick or twisted I don't care , I think there is a little John Roecker in everyone, and hes destined to be up there with the great Andy Warhol and John Waters if his visions keep up like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Movie Of The Millenium February 19, 2007
By R.L.
This movie is the absolute best f*!$ing film ever! It's basically a horribly politically incorrect interpretation of the Charles Manson murders, all from The Family's point of view. "Do you have a taste for sex and blood and hate, or really good LSD?" Then this movie is definitely for you! I watch and quote this all the time, and my friends hate me for it!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Garbage! May 30, 2010
I'm a big fan of John Waters and David Lynch type cult films. I also love musicals and claymation, so the combination looked like a winner, even though I'm not a fan of the Charles Manson story. On top of that, Asia Argento's name was on it and usually her involvement in a film is a treat. This DVD is pure garbage on so many levels. It was bad enough listening to the horrible theme song go on and on during the menu screen (I made the mistake of inserting the DVD and going off to do something while it loaded). Then you play the film and are treated to a full 2 minutes of the title on screen. I forwarded it after 30 seconds. The film is just awful! I hate when filmmakers think they are trying to make a statement or give you some enlightening message, while using shock tactics and bad taste. John Waters makes this work, this filmmaker does not. I have seen a lot of bad films and a lot of films people would find insulting. This is one of the few that had me disgusted and insulted. On top of that, with the amount of musical talent involved, you would think that the music would at least be a selling point. The music is horrible and most songs go on way too long! Not worth viewing at all! I'm glad I bought the film at Big Lots for cheap. And even then, I still felt ripped off!
