I must say that there is a special place in my heart or this movie. I grew up during the Heavy Metal Phase in the 80's and this movie was right up there with Hallloween Party Fliks my friends and I watched in High School like Nightmare on Elm Street, Trick or Treat, Friday the 13th, etc. I sadly do not own a copy of the movie but I would really love to get one. Can anyone help me?
P.S. I am in no way connected to this movie like Thor! (How cool is it that he actually met a member of KISS?), Wolfboy ad all the other guys who've posted here who have been involved with this truly enteraining B movie but you can all send me email anyway if you'd like even though I can't dish on this movie.

    The first (and greatest) Rock/Horror/Religious/Porn flick ever! the best use of clay-mation since gumby, in a movie no less! Stig sounded like he was shiprecked on an island with a VCR as a child and learned to talk from watching "The Road Warrior" videos. Believe it or not, our superhero THOR was a rock warrior who blew up hot water bottles and bent mike stands as a stage act in the 70's, and he still makes thunderous cd's.

In the UK this movie is called 'The Edge of Hell' and it is one of the worst movies ever. I particularly like Thor's recital of the names of the devil, and the gratuitous product placement for coca-cola. See you again old scratch!

Oh MY GOD!!! I cant believe this page exists!! Finally i can now have a sample of the greatest song of all time, "We live to Rock!" Truely brillant, reminds me of the many late nights me and my friends spent watching this film, yes we've seen it more than once - you know who you are!!

I thought rock n roll nightmare aka {edge of hell} was pretty cool I know the special effects are cheesy but I really liked the story line. My favorite song is the song from the last fight the challenge I wish groups today sounded that good nowadays you can't even understand what they are saying. The sock puppets were funny too along with the demon at the end but if you turn the contrast a little darker some parts won't look fake. I really liked the movie and the music I give it a 5.

I worked on "Rock'n'Roll Nightmare" in make-up and special effects (the term used loosely)It's not surprising that the director of this "movie" also wrote another bad movie (Another 48 hours with Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy)

I was depressed at the time and although it may not be up to par with say... "The Thing With Two Heads", most people who I worked with were really cool.

We had a blast.

Thor! Is my hero!!! Look at what I found here! (

"Born in Vancouver and a bodybuilder by the age of seven, young Jon Mikl Thor found solace from the rigors of working out by rocking out to his favorite tunes. "We had a weight set in the basement where my older brother showed me how to train," the rugged one remembers. "I started listening to metal and hard rock like Zeppelin and Black Sabbath and trained to it. I found that it was a great way to pump up, and eventually I won tournaments like Teenage Mr. America and Mr. Junior Canada. I went on to win Mr. USA and Mr. Canada when I was 18 years old.""


"Along the way he also managed to star in three classic low budget B-movies (one featuring Adam West, no doubt!), grab the title of Mr. USA, dance in a nudie musical, do time as a male stripper, and be crushed with a hammer by a masked gladiator foe named Mettalus. More than a hard rock heavy hitter, Thor may just be the Dirk Diggler of heavy metal."

Don't you just love it?!

wow...forget 'rocktober blood' forget 'black flowers'. this is the crap heavy metal horror movie you need to see. from the opening sequence of the van driving and driving and driving, i knew this was going to be a special bad movie experience, and i was not disappointed. auteur jon mikl thor's quest for fame wasn't limited to this effort. no, my friends, there's more. he also starred in 'zombie nightmare' featuring no less a talent than adam 'batman' west and tia carrere in an early role. it's pretty bad, too. and he had a band named thorkestra! i know this because there was an entry on him in a little pocket guide to heavy metal i found once in a bookstore...i wonder where he is now...
oh, heavy metal makes me laugh...

Rock N Roll Nightmare is one of the most important films in the history of cinema.... It not only combines the tremendous acting abilities of the THOR but his musical stylings as well. After it release in 87' and reviews of "Box Office Poison," Rock N Roll Nightmare found a place in all of our hearts and is destined to remain on the AFI's list of 100 Greatest Movies of all time.....

The Most Important Movie Of All Time, Period!

I've been searching for reviews on this movie for so long! It is by far my favorite bad movie of all time.  I make it my duty to show all of my friends this wonderful piece of garbage.  Those who like this should also check out the other two films by the same director: Black Roses (more hair band trash), and The Jitters (canadian chinese vampire trash).  Also, look for the king of rock, Jon-Mikl Thor!, in Zombie Nightmare and Recruits.  They both suck too.  But in a good way.
Best line: "but it sounded like the scream came from down're right. Let's check up stairs."

Hey! I love this movie! hey! I directed this movie. Seven days, $53,000 budget, 35mm -- show me the money -- let's see YOUR film, brothers. Started my career, and had a ball. s**t, you're all still talking about it! PS. Those monsters were scuplyed, molded latex, not socks. Socks would have been cheaper. Damn I should have just used sock puppets!

Well, you can say what you want about this flick, but the final sequence is possibly the single most entertaining ever captured on film.  I lay awake at night wondering how ANYONE could ever come up with this and truly believe in it.  I imagine THOR had to pitch it to some people, and those people must have said YES! It makes me lose faith in humankind.  When will you ever learn.

YEAH!!!!!! THOR IS MY HERO!!!! I can't believe there are other people in this world that loved this movie as much I did! There is a bright new world in my future knowing you are all out there. Best Quote from this movie: "Hey Bub...or should I call you BeeeEEEElzbub?" WE LIVE TO ROCK!!!!!!!!!

 I would rather suffer open heart surgery and an  anal probe with a cactus while sucking my own s**t through as straw dipped in rancid fanny juice while similtaniously watching every programme des o connor ever made then suffer the mind frazzling torture of watching the whole sack of lepper colony sick that is rock n roll nightmare.

This is the greatest movie and I will tell you why. First of all This movie has it all. Sex, Action, Canada, Monsters and more corney dialog than that Fred Savage movie "The Wizard". Secondly, the plot. You watch this movie then are taken by complete surprise with the ending. Who would have guessed that ending? I understand that this movie is one of the cheesiest of all time, but it is by far the most entertaining cheesy movie. I am glad to see others on here enjoyed it as much as me because I haven't met anyone who has ever seen this movie.
