Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Jesse D'Angelo, Teresa Simpson. Living the rock'n'roll life should be fun for a successful band and their hot girlfriends. But it turns into anything but when the barn where they rehearse becomes a portal to Hell, and the band's lead singer is the only one who can lead them out of the darkness! Now available in killer High Def, this hard rock cult classic has a head-banging soundtrack to match. 1987/color/89 min/R.


"… one of the year’s most essential DVD release." -- MONDO-DIGITAL.COM, June 16, 2006

"…discs like this make me so very glad to be alive in this day and age." -- DVDMANIACS.NET, June 16, 2006

3.0 out of 5 stars Do You Accept The Challenge? November 2, 2006
Ultimately, I like this film, though I am a bit mixed on a few things. The basic plot involves Thor and his band recording their new album in a small house in Canada. The house was the site of a murder(we get to see it in the beginning of the film) years before. Soon after their arrival, Thor and co. start getting assaulted by demons that look like Jim Henson creations on crack. Chaos ensues and in the end we get a pretty cool twist as to the identity and motivations of Thor's character. It just goes to prove as we all already know that nothing defeats the power and might of metal!! The concept of a hard rock band menaced by cheap looking monsters is a B-movie fan's dream. Unfortunately, the film's short running time is jam packed with long, boring filler scenes of....well, nothing really. Lots of babble, and lingering camera shots of various crap that really serves no purpose. The rock band, The Tritons, come across as alot more goody two-shoes than most cinematic rock bands. No drugs, no profanity, and they're monogamus! When the demons show up to cause mayhem, things start to look up, but the scenes are so brief, few and far between. It's almost as though the "horror" aspect of the film was thrown in as an afterthought and the project originally started off as a low budget soap opera about a band rehearsing. The songs should bring a smile to your face however. What makes up for everything though is the final battle between Thor and the devil. This scene alone is worth owning the dvd, and is one of the most entertaining scenes in my recent memory. Very funny, very cool. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars THE LEDGEND! November 1, 2006
This movie contains one of the most insane "WTF!" climactic twists of any movie ever. Crammed with excelent dish washing scenes, Stuffed condom like monsters, and some of the best Horror rock jam sessions of all time (incuding the classic songs: "We live to rock!", "You give me energy!", and the epicly sublime "WE ACCEPT THE CHALLANGE!") and of course...Stig.

It all comes togehter under the granite hard fist of the canadian rock god THOR! to make one of the best films ever to come out of the planet earth.

This movie is a cool test. If you don't love it, consider yourself quite uncool.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only in the 1980's February 11, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Take a flick like "Rock n' Roll Nightmare", the huge hair, the screaming guitar and pounding drums of a RATT-like metal band named the Tritonz screaming out tunes like "We Live to Rock", and mix in plenty of gratuitous nudity, some goofy demonic sock puppets and you have a movie that could have only come out during the Reagan era.

As a fan of "so-bad-its-good" cinema, "Rock n' Roll Nightmare" has always been a favorite. This DVD is chock full of great extras, music videos, commentary tracks, behind the scenes footage and even a newly filmed intro and outro by Jon Mikl Thor himself. But lets face it, what really matters is the film itself. The great news is that the sound and picture quality have never looked or sounded better. The film looks pristine in all of it's goofy glory.

The basic story is that the Tritonz have gone to an isolated farmhouse in Canada to rehearse tunes for their upcoming album. Without distraction the band can no focus on their music. Unfortunately, the house they've chosen holds a gateway to Hell. Soon odd things begin to happen to various members of the band and their girlfriends. Soon some spittle-laden sock puppets show up and....well, I don't want to give anything away, so I'll stop there. Just be prepared for one seriously goofy climax, involving a HUGE puppet, and a silver-sequined man-bikini.

This movie brings the goofy, and if you are a fan of horrible horror along the lines of "Hard Rock Zombies", "The Last Slumber Party" or "Class Reunion Massacre" then you will love "Rock n' Roll Nightmare".

5.0 out of 5 stars SO BAD IS GREAT September 13, 2008
I will go to the point. The film sucks in every way. Dialogues, acting, special efects, lightning, plot, unnecesary sex, but if you are into really terrible, bizarre films, THIS ONE'S FOR YOU!!
The final fight, between Thor and the Devil Himself (or that's what I understood) would ashame even old Ed Wood!
A must!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great cheese!! January 3, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Yes, it is kind of cheesy...yes, the acting ain't great...yes, the special effect are anything but special...and yes, it is about as "B" and a "B" movie can get. BUT HEY!It is THOR! and you have to pay homage to it. The music is cool, and it is a classic from decades past. I never saw this film till last month, and I thought it was cool. but hey, I already love most all things Thor, so I might be biased. The bonus features are great on the DVD release, and the DVD is top notch compared to some crappy releases. At least rent it...but why waste time, go ahead and buy one.
