I posted this partly because I just read a review of "Rock and Roll Nightmare" starring heavy metal rocker Jon Mikl Thor. It was only two years earlier that Mr. Thor starred in another cinematic masterpiece with a similar title. I'm speaking of course of the legendary "Zombie Nightmare." I was first made aware of this celluloid gem on an episode of MST3K, and I've loved it ever since. The story couldn't be less original. Thor plays a beloved neighborhood baseball player who is run over by a car full of drunk teenagers. Instead of taking him to a hospital, local Italian grocer Mr.Peters (yeah, that's an Italian name) brings his corpse home to his mother. The mom get's a witch doctor (who looks like Tina Turner in "Beyond Thunderdome") to bring her son back to life. Now he is a vengeful zombie who hunts down and kills the drunk teens. One of them is played by Tia Carrea and another is played by future "Date Night" director Sean Levy. Levy's character has some of the best lines. Like when he tells a girl who rejects him that "you will have it and you will love it." He's a real bad boy performing such rebellious acts as running red lights and throwing pasta at his mom. Frank Dietz (also from "RnR Nightmare) plays a young detective and Adam West is his boss. Which is appropriate since the coroner talks like the Penguin. I should also point out that the zombie is played by a completely different actor during the second half of the movie. They don't even attempt to cover it up. This is just pure bad movie fun.

Adam West was also in a move a few years earlier called One Dark Night, aka Rest In Peace. 

As far as Tia Carrere, OMG. Has a more beautiful Asian woman ever existed?

As to this movie, I have it, still on tape somewhere in my dusty dungeon.

Jon-Mikl Thor: I remember him being on New Jersey's Uncle Floyd Show where he bent a real iron bar in his mouth. AND, from an old U-68 Power Hour segment, I have an old video of his called Knock Them Down.  Good days, good times!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
