Geek Out #7

If you haven't seen Black Roses, buy it immediately. It's one of the best cheeseball b-movies of all time. This video is the opening sequence of Black Roses spliced with clips from the rest of the film. All you need to know is that this disasterpiece concerns an evil metal band that brainwashes teenagers. So you get 80's creature effects AND a soundtrack full of 80's metal. What more could you possibly ask for?


  1. I can't believe I've never watched this, or that other eighties metal horror film 'Trick or Treat'. Gotta' add that to my "to do" list.

    It probably bears mentioning that the band actually performing this song is Lizzy Borden, who enjoyed some minor popularity in the metal underground of the early to mid eighties. This was probably their best known song, as Headbanger's Ball played different video for the song in semi-heavy rotation.

  2. Yeah, I've always liked Lizzy Borden. They (or he, rather) was accused of being an Alice Cooper clone, but whatever. Most of their albums are worth listening to, even the more recent stuff.
