Attack of the Killer Soundtrack - Episode 27

This week we welcome our special guest co-host Dr. Gangrene to be our DJ of heavy metal horror movies. We let the Doctor run wild as we assemble our own epic soundtrack built from the metal-themed movies that ruled the 80's!

And as we discuss the "Satanic Panic" that took hold of the country, we also mention... the greatest WTF ending, a three-dimensional VHS cover, you've gotta see the zombie march, swatting a fly, which brings them back... to battle Hitler and his minions, VH1, a rocker that comes back from the dead to get revenge on the people who did him wrong, congress brought rock and rollers in there, wizards, Never Sleep Again, singing lyrics from the book, it was a magical thing, Metal Mania, this movie's nuts, guitar punk, a werewolf, skateboarding, a love story aliens invading zombies... it's got it all, like bumpy, that whole time period and everything that was going on, this movie's got it all, a band of demons... trying to steal the souls of the kids in the town, while this is going on there's a subplot of a slasher going around killing people, I've met Thor, I know Thor... I'm friends with Thor, garagey and trashy, once we were done with heavy metal it's like other cultures picked it up and started doing their own thing with it, in a functioning video store, smart-assed comments, Eva Braun, because the 80's was... the 80's, It's in the songs... it's in the movie, Splatter, that's the way to ring in the new year, playing a cassette tape and then this band comes along... and then demons. 

"I think we've gotta start with... what I call the Citizen Kane of heavy metal horror movies."
