heavy metal monster mash
The writer/director of the world's "Best Worst Movie" TROLL 2, created this treasured Alice Cooper gorefest, bringing the same amount of genius with his offbeat English written/translated dialogue, abstract non-sequitur sequences and genuine passion towards low budget Horror filmmaking! All hail Claudio Fragrasso! This RARE 1980s obscurity which follows a pop star (Alice Cooper) as he heads to a small town to make his next music video, is filled with so much neo-sincere insanity it not only is a priceless conclusion for an unbelievable all day 35mm film fest, but it's the perfect symbol of filmmaking that M4M celebrates! Preceded by a pack of Animal-Attacking-Human trailers! Unbelievably RARE 35mm print courtesy of MGM. 84min
