Ratings Key



★★★★
= Excellent. The best the genre has to offer.
★★★
1/2 = Very Good. Perhaps not "perfect," but undoubtedly a must-see.
★★★ = Good. Accomplishes what it sets out to do and does it well.
★★1/2 = Fair. Clearly flawed and nothing spectacular, but competently made. OK entertainment.
★★ = Mediocre. Either highly uneven or by-the-numbers and uninspired.
1/2 = Bad. Very little to recommend.
= Very Bad. An absolute chore to sit through.
NO STARS! = Abysmal. Unwatchable dreck that isn't even bad-movie amusing.
SBIG = So Bad It's Good. Technically awful movies with massive entertainment value.

Hard Rock Zombies (1985)

...aka: Rock Zombies

Directed by:
Krishna Shah

Would-be cult flick finds four members of a heavy metal hair band descending on a small town and disrupting the peaceful lives of the old-fashioned citizens. They end up getting themselves murdered and (thanks to an incantation one of the band members recorded before dying) come back as zombies to get revenge on the Neo Nazi baddies responsible. There's a werewolf creature, an evil blonde seductress who gets naked, a dwarf, Hitler and frequent breaks made for musical numbers. The makeup effects are laughable, the acting is terrible and it could (and should) have been funnier, but the climactic cheesy love song ("Cassie") belted out to a shy, young, seemingly mute, wide-eyed groupie has to be some sort of stupid classic. American Drive-In (1985), by the same director featured this movie as the main attraction.

1/2
