So, not very good movie.

I think I must be in a very small group of people who is keeping in track all of the not-so-good movies Dean Cameron took part in. Summer School, Miracle Beach, at least one Police Acadamy movie, and Rockula.

If there was one thing I learned by watching this movie is that Toni Basil was actually a very attractive woman. No kidding, when she wasn't surrounded by cheerleaders she was pretty good looking.

Here's the other kicker, the other dips**t actor? He literally recreated sound as it is explored in cinema. Dolby! Bit part in Rockula? When you see Dolby in cinema? That guy!

Every dead body that is not exterminated becomes one of them. It gets up and kills. The people it kills, get up and kill.

I've sat through this one a couple of times....pretty sad film. If you like 80's cheese this is typical....even though it was 1990. TeddyR

Yes,I'm long as I don't look too closely.

I love it.  Yeah, it was silly, but that was the whole charm of it. 

I often find the Rockula theme stuck in my head.

I think he should've spent the whole film in that half-man/half-bat form, rather than just two scenes (if I recall correctly).
