Punk Rock Holocaust 2004 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
The scene is the 2003 Vans Warped Tour, one of the biggest touring punk festivals in history, but this time around, instead of merely moshing… bands, fans, merchants and crew members are being systematically slaughtered. Due to the rigors of the day to day operation of the tour, the grizzly murders are overlooked until so many people are dead or missing it is impossible to ignore.
Soon rumors are abound of a legendary band named Brutal Enigma who supposedly years ago tricked Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman into letting them perform by giving him a Black Flag demo tape. Discovering he’d been duped by a horrible band, Lyman banished Brutal Enigma from the tour. Days later, Brutal Enigma was found dead by apparent suicide on their tour bus. Has the banished band returned for revenge? Or is there something far more sinister abound?
This punk rock slasher comedy is directed by Doug Sakmann and produced by Backseat Conceptions. The film features starring roles and performances from nearly every band on this year’s tour, including RANCID, SIMPLE PLAN, THE USED, LESS THAN JAKE, ANDREW WK, TSUNAMI BOMB, DROPKICK MURPHIES, SUICIDE MACHINES, ATMOSHPHERE, MEST, PENNYWISE and more as they struggle to keep on the road and figure out who is behind the crimes. The film backdrop includes the Warped Tour’s stages, grounds and production areas, as well as the various venues and landmarks that the crew encounters along the 44 date tour.
