I struggled to sit through this film because of the amount of second-hand embarrassment I felt for the people who agreed to be in this.
Watching a group of middle-aged people with zero personal charisma or acting ability pretend to be young shock rock musicians is absolutely painful. The film also seems to have no idea what shock rock is since the craziest onstage antics we see are cringy hip-thrusting motions.
Not one of the actors is remotely convincing as a member of the music industry. The sound quality is awful, the plot is threadbare, and the film overall is a boring waste of time.

The film is done documentary style. It follows the life of Erika Spawn/Angela Lee (Victoria Hopkins) and her groupie Stef Regan (Lucy Dunn) who doesn’t “like the present.” The film starts out slow as we see the no talent lip syncing Erika (it was Ashlee Simpson bad) shock rocker being adored by shy timid Stef. The film is mostly people talking about them. They describe Erika’s antics and the low budget omits key points in her life such as the awards ceremony where they were snubbed. Could have been a great scene. As it was, it was a written line on the screen. Part of the film also features Adele (Jess-Luisa Flynn) their bass player, at times the overly excited voice of reason. Once “the event” of the film happens, the story begins weave into something interesting bringing together the clues laid out earlier.
The problem I had with the film was that it took too long to get interesting. Lucy Dunn was great, however Victoria Hopkins was clearly a miscast and has done better since. Jess-Luisa Flynn acted rings around her. The horror aspect was not well done and was too little too late. The camera angles were deliberately bad due to the budget, missing action that would have required a minor special effect like a retractable knife.
The film was entertaining after awhile, although Robin Harris (Scott North) was not credible as a singer.
The film won Best Independent Feature Award (Festival of Fantastic Films, UK 2008). It showed talented script writing, it needed better execution.
