Editorial Reviews

Australia's premier stuntman, Grant Page, is on a mission: filmmaker Brian Trenchard Smith has sent him to LA to work on a TV series. Here he meets up with fellow daredevil Cutis Hyde, who does stunt work for a theatrical rock band called Sorcery, and Page impresses the rockers so much with his daredevil antics that they hire him as well. While his first stunt lands him in the hospital, the reckless Page defies his doctors orders, escaping out of the ward's fifth-story window to get back to the band. Page soon finds himself the focus of the ladies, attracting both a newspaper reporter (Margaret Gerard) and a television star (Monique van de Ven).

Featuring non-stop action, a killer soundtrack and a bit of romance on the side, STUNT ROCK is an adrenaline-filled, cult classic that is sweeping the midnight circuit!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the worst movies I have ever seen. October 4, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Seriously. This movie is horrible. The acting sucks, there really isn't any plot to be seen, and I didn't care a lick about what happened to the main characters. That being said though, this is still a ridiculously awesome movie. Throughout the movie the viewer is subjected to what are supposed to be flashbacks, but that is just a guise. They are really just a stunt reel that contain some pretty awesome stunts. Jumping off a buildings, car chases, getting set on fire, all those delightful chestnuts and more are feature. Also apparently there is a hair metal band involved with this, which is totally awesome because the band is a "Wizard" band. What I mean by "wizard" band is that during the band's performance, two guys(one dressed as a typical wizard and one dressed as Satan)have a magic battle. And by magic, I mean kinda lame stage magic. For some reason, all these elements make for one of the best/worst pieces of film I have ever seen. If you enjoy bad movies, this is by far one of the worst.

P.S. The ending is amazing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stunt Rock November 27, 2013
Format:DVD
Stunt Rock (1978) features some of the greatest stunt numbers ever filmed particularly during the "Sorcery" segment which is performed by Grant Page. That good vs. evil heavy metal sequence alone is reason enough to see this film. And of course the title track during which Sorcery takes their most famous musical sequence is also highly entertaining. And the film does contain plenty of humor especially in the scene where Grant Page describes his early stunt career to the press as being glamorous and artistically stimulating while we see images of his past that contradict this fact by showing scenes of Grant Page himself being pelted by angry punters in a small music hall.

Besides, there's a masked keyboardist, stunts painfully gone awry, chicks in gold spandex with guns, wizards, demons, the amazingly awful heavy metal "Sorcery", whose live performances, as shown here, are filled with an audience who seem to all be wondering who the hell these people are.

5.0 out of 5 stars They don't make 'em like this anymore! September 6, 2009

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For fans of action-adventure genre films, it doesn't get any better than this. For those who question the connection between rock and stunts, the proof is in the viewing. Brian Trenchard-Smith is truly the king of genre.
