For the last 30 years, horror films and rock and roll ( and mostly Heavy Metal) have kinda gone hand in hand. I suppose its the whole Devil Worshipping and wearing all black thing...
That connection has inspired countless hack film makers to cash in and make slasher films with a "Heavy Metal" twist. Titles such as "Hard Rock Zombies" and "Rocktober Blood" SOUND good, but the execution makes me tired and kinda cranky after about 10 minutes. Although, big blonde haired rock gods fighting demon puppets is a very special thing, I must say I dont think I could handle more than one or two of these films in a year. So, being the "cinemasochist" I am, I decided I'm gonna watch 6....Yes, 6 of them!
However, I don't want to stick to the "Heavy Metal" formula. As I fished through Cinefile Video (shameless plug),I found that there are a plethora of other music-genre-80's-slasher cash-ins.
I will not be doing a Podcast with Michael on this endeavour. I would rather not subject my friend to such agony. So, every week expect a new review.
This week I am starting with "Rockula"
Wish me luck!

Welcome to The Cinemasochist World. Where monsters walk strip malls, women lose their shoes and rap stars try their hand at acting. It's a cruel , cruel world. We have been sent from the VHS Gods to fulfill an obligatory community service by watching the worst films of recent memory. Our goal is find out, in retrospect, if these films are as bad as they seemed. Are they redeemable? Are they even watchable? Worry not, good film lovers; we are here to do it so you don't have to.
We will do our best to do one film a week and record a play by play of sorts for your listening pleasure. We will watch said films together and immediately after, vomit our thoughts into a microphone. Sometimes the vomit will be tasty, other times, not. But, that's how it goes when tackling an endeavor such as this. It's a crap shoot. And it's also crap.
Listen in and enjoy. If you have words , feel free to type them and send 'em here: firstname.lastname@example.org
