    Part 3 of Hoop-Tober

    Music for your reading pleasure

    "Rock’s chosen warriors will rule the apocalypse."


    I haven’t been surprised this much with a horror movie since I saw John Carpenter’s Prince of Darkness nearly a year ago. Trick or Treat, the 1986 horror movie I hadn't even heard of five days ago, is some of the most fun I have had while watching a horror movie in a very, very long time.

    In Trick or Treat, the…

    Ah , how I love the small genre of heavy metal horror movies from the 80's. While I would have to say my all time favorite is Shock em dead, this comes in a close second. Skippy from Family Ties is mildly convincing as a loser metal head who is very upset when his heavy metal idol, Sammi Curr dies. Gene Simmons plays the kind of sinister metal DJ that would call the suburbs home and would also have an…

    Despite having Gene Simons and Ozzy Osborn on the cover of the version I watched, both had very small appearances in this movie. If I was that kid, I would be pissed. I mean, not as pissed as I would be for having appeared in this terrible movie but...

    Gotta love the soundtrack...well, I do. Great little cameos by Gene Simmons & Ozzy Osbourne. I will say this film could have used practical effects to show some creative kills. If you're a fan of 80s metal and like horror, well this is def the film to watch.

    I wanted to see this when I was a kid because of the killer cover art and the stills on the back, but the video store that had it was only around in the days when I was too young to get it. Somehow it's only now that I've actually gotten to it. But it couldn't have come at a better time, having really embraced in recent years the kind of music that provides the motif and soundtrack of the…

    A gentle reminder to never play your records backwards. Even if you really hate your high school.

    The premise of Haunted Heavy Metal Records and Cassettes killing preppy teens is awesome and so 80's - shame the story is a bit slow in some parts, and I really didn't like Ragman all that much...

    My love of any pre 1990 metal makes this movie a 5 out of 5 no matter if it is a test pattern with metal music over it. It is nice to see Skippy hanging out with a cooler crowd. Skippy- look up the reference if for some reason you do not know who the guy is. Watch this one if you get a chance.

    I remember catching this one theatrically back in college and thought it was silly fun. Still is, 28 (!!!) years later. Watched the German Blu-ray, which was taken from a dense print that contained shitty muffled English audio. Oh well, sure beats the crappy "Platinum" disc DVD that came out about 10 years ago. Not a bad cheezy metal horror film directed by "Toad."

    After the death of his heavy metal hero, a high school loner is given a copy of his singer's final , unreleased album, and all hell breaks loose.

    There are a lot of movies out there that when they were made reflected the mood of the time. In this case we have Trick Or Treat, which isn't actually a particularly good horror movie, but was made at a time when public opinion was turning against heavy metal music, and it…
