Even the most hardened veteran of bad cinema will sit slack-jawed as this incredibly amateurish vanity production, boasting cheap thrills and even cheaper rock'n'roll, unfolds. In a remote Canadian farmhouse, an unseen evil force slaughters an entire family. Years later, a heavy-metal rock

band has converted the barn into a recording studio. The leader of the band, muscle-bound, long-haired John Triton (Jon-Mikl Thor), is a committed musician with little tolerance for the tomfoolery of the other band members--most of whom spend the weekend cavorting with their girl friends.

Unbeknownst to the band, however, several poorly crafted puppet creatures are crawling around the set possessing hapless cast members. It's all a silly ego trip for obscure heavy-metal rocker Thor, who wrote, produced, and starred in this overlong rock video featuring several of his insipid songs.

Director John Fasano's only contributions are several Sam Raimi/EVIL DEAD-inspired camera moves in which the camera races through the farmhouse, taking the point of view of the evil force. The acting is uniformly awful. Most of the female cast members readily shed their clothes; however, no one,

shows as much flesh as Thor himself, who dresses in nothing but a studded loincloth for his climactic battle scene with Satan.
