Super Duper Alice Cooper
Emerging from the Detroit music scene of the 1970s in a flurry of long hair and sequins, Alice Cooper restored hard rock with a sense of showmanship, while simultaneously striking fear into the hearts of Middle America with the chicken-slaughtering, dead-baby-eating theatrics that would cement his identity as a glam metal icon. Meticulously crafted from rare archival footage, Super Duper Alice Cooper tells the story of the man behind the makeup, Vincent Furnier, the son of a preacher, who got caught in the grip of his own monster.

This is a disturbed character and Christian does a good job at getting that across through his physical appearance and the way he acts. Just by looking at him, you can tell that something isn't right with his head and that's all Christian Slater really. The film does have a very low-budget feel but it's never distracting to the overall quality of the film. While the script is appropriately dark, with plenty of comedy to boot, the story never really clicked for me because you can very clearly tell where it's going and the ending while powerful, in a way, was predictable as hell. I think the film works best as an examination of a man who is clearly disturbed and at the end of the rope. The film loses sight of that as it goes along, but by the end, even with its predictability, it gets back to that base of studying what makes a man, in this case a very disturbed one, do what he does. Whether it be love, or just a plea for attention/help, and I think that's what is best about the film and it's something that should've been more focused on. Still this is a solid film with a really good performance from Christian Slater, but it could've been better, in my opinion.

The monsters are low-budget puppets that don't even directly kill its victims. They hypnotize their victims into living their latest dreams or fantasies. I cannot tell whether the victims fall for the hallucinations as if they were real, or the hobgoblins hypnotize the victims into believing such dreams too. I'm complicating the matter. It's a shitty low-budget horror film, very much of its time. It's especially sleazy too. Within a group of five college-age friends, two of the main characters seem to talk only about sex, one character calls a phone sex operator, and yet another fantasizes about being a stripper. The only non-sexual one is our hero, Kevin, who works as a security guard at a movie studio where the hobgoblins rest. He is there to prove his love to his timid girlfriend Amy. Once they are set loose, the lessons of friendship are NOT taught. In fact, each friend seems to hate one another for some reason. One guy, veteran Nick, immolates himself by plunging on top of a grenade. Never mind the reality of him being blown to smithereens. Not too long after he burns to death, phone sex friend Kyle makes his move on Nick's now ex-girlfriend Daphne. And she likes it, without any signs of grief! How can I suspend my disbelief?You know you're watching a truly awful movie when you notice bad editing. Rarely do I note the editing in a film, but this time, it stood out. The film takes several seconds to show characters parking and leaving their respective cars, adding up to two minutes of wasted time. For three minutes, there's a friendly fight scene with garden tools between Nick and Kevin, all for proving one's love to their lovers and getting sex. (By the way, as a sex lover, I was surprised by how often these friends nonchalantly talk about sex.) For another three minutes, we listen to the Fontanelles, whose music derives decently from early Echo & the Bunnymen. What is this, an episode of Josie & the Pussycats? As much as it drags in the movie, I would have watched their entire show. And then another three minutes are devoted to watching Amy become a stripper. Holy shit, MOVE ON. The few scenes with the hobgoblins are sometimes difficult to follow. Characters move all over the place, and furniture fixes itself. I hardly laughed with or at the movie. When I wasn't bored, I annoyed myself by thinking about how stupid the characters are. For a better 1980s Z-movie with little monsters and weird, but tasteful, performances, see Troll 2.
