Book Description

“Blood is spilled, taboos are not just broken, but destroyed, and copious amounts of fun are to be had in this latest release from Bryan Smith.”--Paperback Horror blog on Rock and Roll Reform School Zombies

Acclaimed horror author Bryan Smith presents ROCK AND ROLL REFORM SCHOOL ZOMBIES, an approximately 34,000 word novella loaded with sex, gore, and heavy metal.

It’s 1987. Ronald Reagan is president and heavy metal music rules the airwaves. The Southern Illinois Music Reeducation Center exists to cure metal-loving teens of their rebellious ways and turn them into squeaky-clean, “productive” members of society.

Wayne Devereaux heads to the SIMRC one stormy night to help his girlfriend, Melissa, break out of the brainwashing facility. His ganja-toking metalhead buddy, Steve, is along for the ride.

The rescue seems a pretty straightforward--if risky--task, but there’s one complication Wayne and Steve could not have anticipated.

The rise of the flesh-eating zombies.


"Bryan Smith's DARKENED is a full-throttle pedal-to-the-metal ride straight into the heart of the apocalypse. Deeply disturbing and absolutely riveting. Highly recommended."--Jonathan Maberry, NY Times bestselling author of THE KING OF PLAGUES and PATIENT ZERO

“I look forward to spending a weekend with a new Bryan Smith book the way I used to look forward to spending a weekend with a new Richard Laymon novel. In my view, there isn‘t higher praise than that.”--Brian Keene, author of The Rising.

“Let me unequivocally state that Bryan Smith creates the most fantastic, sick, demented and twisted characters in horror fiction today.”--Famous Monsters of Filmland

If you enjoyed the previous novels of Bryan Smith you will certainly enjoy this one. The basic plot is this. The year is 1987. Teens, Wayne and Steve are on a mission to rescue Wayne's girl friend Melissa from the Southern Illinois Music Re-Education Center. SIMRC is a kind of de-programming center for teens into the Heavy Metal lifestyle. The SIMRC is ran by the cruel mistress Sybil Huffington and other twisted religious zealots. Wayne and Steve must break Melissa out before she endures further brutal humiliations...and then there are the zombies. This book at 118 pages is a very fun read. Smith cleverly titles each of his chapters after songs from the 70s and 80s Metal and Punk genres. Smith also inspires rock and roll nostalgia by referencing the 1980s pop culture landscape. He immerses the reader in the atmosphere of the B horror film and masterfully narrates his story with a sense of absurdity and poetic irony.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smith Brings 80's Zombies Back With A Vengeance June 15, 2011
I've read a few Bryan Smith books and for me, he is hit or miss. I'm happy to say that Smith's latest book by Deadite Press is a full-fledged hit. If you grew up nearly worshipping Romero's zombie films along with Return of the Living Dead, then this book is for you. Lots of winks to the reader throughout the story made it even more enjoyable. It has your basic plot, sure, but it moves so fast and with such inspired energy, you can't help but get sucked in and root for the heroes. And while the first half is bit more fun than the second half, the wild frenzy of violence should keep you reading long into the night.

My only real disappointment was with Deadite Press's copy editing. If they can't take the time to clean up punctuation, perhaps they are releasing too many titles. It's a simple process, guys. READ the damn manuscript slowly one time and you will find the errors! With that out of the way, I wholeheartedly recommend "Rock And Roll Reform School Zombies". This book is a great introduction for new readers to experience Bryan Smith. You've got likable characters, ruthless villains, lots of gore, kinky sex, and zombies. What more could you ask for?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Bargain Zombie Book March 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Its 99 cents. YOu get more than your money at that price. No new ground. Its a zombie book. THe characters are cookie cutter. The story moves along at Rage zombie pace and that is what I liked. Plot holes....yeah. Lead bad guy becomes zombie and retains its thinking ability and other character dies and comes back in this manner. Why? Oh no reason, it just makes things more entertaining. The story seems like a short story that got plumped up. Its not bloated, it just seems like no attention to character development was deemed necessary. All sounds negative, sorry. Just keeping it real. truth still is that this is 99 cents and much much better than any other book at that price I have purchased from Amazon. Bryan Smith is better than this story. Seek his longer books out. Great writer.

Even with the ending I still want to hit the road and crank tunes.

Get some pallets from behind the grocery store and a couple quarts of Miller Lite and make a party of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wicked fun February 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading this particular story from Bryan Smith. He is a very talented writer and this story is well written and paced. I loved the nods to 80's metal and horror culture, and how it perfectly mirrored the sensibilities of that decade. I could not recommend this more, for the love of Christ, read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1980's Heavy Metal Zombie Romp May 23, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The year is 1987. The Southern Illinois Music Reeducation Center, fronted by a sadistic headmistress, specializes in "de-metaling" teens at any means necessary and corporal punishment seems to be in the lesson plan. Things couldn't possibly get any worse for the students of the SIMRC. That's until a glowing green comet comes hurtling towards earth creating a zombie outbreak. And forget about your typical boring-ass zombies. Think sexy zombie prostitutes and metal-loving schoolgirl zombies.

ROCK AND ROLL REFORM SCHOOL ZOMBIES is a blast! It's fast paced, campy and fun as hell. If you're a fan of 1980's horror flicks, or more specifically RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD, you need to read this book. *Devil horns*
