Hard Rock Zombies

1985 / d. Krishna Shah
It’s death metal, literally! This low-budget flick may appear to be another in a long line of so-bad-they’re-good films of the undead… until you realize that it was actually meant to be a comedy! This guilty pleasure has it all: a pair of murderous midgets, a slicin’n’dicin’ werewolf woman in a wheelchair, a hulking psycho with a raging weed whacker, and Adolph Hitler! Oh, and did I mention hair? Lots and lots of hair! The tunes (everything from love ballads to guitar riffs with the power to reanimate the dead) are pretty darn catchy and the performances from the cast can actually be quite clever at times. A hidden gem that is just dying to rock out in your DVD player. [JC]
