A rock group is murdered by Hitler and his Nazi family, but the members are then resurrected by a guitar riff the lead singer had discovered.  This movie has me quite confused.  I either want to give it four slimes, or condemn it with a single drop.

I recall when I first stumbled upon this mess and reviewed it myself.  As mentioned in Andrew's review, the whole Jessie/Cassie thing was just plain creepy.  This whole disturbing plot point gets capped off during the band's horrid performance of "Oh Cassie" at the end.  Cassie imagines Jessie, wearing a white outfit complete with a really effeminate looking ascot, dancing with her.  My stomach is churning just thinking about it. 

I imagine the only time its better to be Helen Keller is while watching this film.  The lighter than Air Supply soundtrack fits right in with the "so horrible its a crime" editing which is at it's worst in the middle of the film right before the band's death.  I looked like the director's chair needed stuff so he threw a bunch of random material together to kill time. I often wondered if being on acid would help the experience out a bit. 

Thanks for reviewing it Andrew and may 2007 bring even worse movies than HRZ to the bad movie review community.

Trying to review this one was like wrestling a greased pig that has human DNA.  Not only is it messy and something you really do not want to do, but the pig's reaction causes you to feel unclean.

Andrew...I would say thats a good description.  Perhaps if the pigs were from the movie Pigs it would be an even better description... BounceGiggle

Some friends of mine and myself have bad movie night about once a month.

This was one of the movies we subjected ourselves to this past summer around July. 

My brain has felt a bit slushy since.

Darn! Never had the fortune or misfortune of seeing this, so I hoped the clip would be of the killer blonde high-steppin' across the seats in the theater. Actually, what she does is not that hard, just ask any Rockette or chorus girl. To do it, though, you just have to start real early in your life, before your muscles and joints have time to set.

And as always, another good review from Andrew.

I saw this film on the Horror Channel (UK, now called "Zone Horror") ages ago and I loved it to bits. I thought it was so hilarious and self-aware. A great laugh.

I particularly loved the line:

"It's like the plot of some awful B-movie"
- "This whole day has been like some awful B-movie"



Oh, and, the midget eating himself. Recurring through the entire film, until he's just a head, which sucks it's face into the skull and swallows that, and burps. Freaking awesome!  BounceGiggle You can't tell me that there's anything in this world better than a midget zombie nazi eating himself at the table with a knife and fork, whilst listening to classical music.

I'm trying to find a copy of this so that I can review it for my website, but unfortunately it's nowhere to rent, and I'd have to import a Region 1 copy, which I can't afford to do right now.

BEST MOVIE EVER.

I thought Rock and Roll Nightmare was the best/worst film we'd ever seen, but HRZ...

My oh my.

Screened it for friends who share our affinity for s**te cinema, and wound up rewinding it many times (in shock and awe), simply because you cannot believe what you're seeing.

Buy it and prepare to have your life changed.

Let us not also ask the question, when the Generic Boys (my name for the band since the band's name was never mentioned) played their Zombie number at the end to lure all the zombies into the gas chamber, how exactly did they get to the cave so quickly (with all their gear) and where were the guitars plugged in?

And who went into a chamber FILLED WITH POISON GAS to get their bodies and re-bury them?

And, the one question I never asked when I reviewed this movie for my website, was WHY was this movie made?

WHY????

 Drink <---- How I got through it.

Almost threw up laughing so hard...so much to mention I will have to take more time to write it all down.  A few tid bits:
  Opening scene with the band rocking out- the drummer, who is standing up, decides to kick one of his drums across the room before the song really starts.  That's when you know these guys rock, hard.
  After the first show- one of the band members (I think its the drummer again) is doing something I have never seen in a movie before.  In his underwear, he is bent over at the waist trying to take his sock off, akwardly hoping around.  This might not seem like much, but it struck me as the funniest thing I have ever seen in a movie.  Why was he doing that in the first place?  Why not edit that out or re-shoot that scene?  Its just so silly and unecessarry a thing to be doing...probably just me but I thought it was hilarious.
  Moving way forward, past the completely gay music video sequence, after which the band is imprisoned in a barn, released and subsequently murdered...
  The first scene after the entire band is killed, the manager is having dinner with the family of freaky murderers.  Of course they were kind enough to host the funeral as well as the wake.  No investigations are apparenly necessarry, and the families must have thought it best to have the band buried on the property where they were massacred.  Buried in what looks later to be roughly 1/3 of an inch of dirt...
  Somehow to this point the plot actually makes sense.  The rest of it is such a mind numbing blur that I am going to have to watch it again and take notes. 

  Bottom Line:  This is a masterpiece that defies explanation

 This is probably the best and most extensive review on this movie on the web as well as the funniest. The review is way funnier than the movie lol unless probably watching the movie with the author.
 Thanks, got a big laugh out of it, hope you review more crappy low budget favorites! Cheers
