Toilet Radio 396 – Hard Rock Nightmare (feat. The Horror Guru)
This week we’re joined by The Horror Guru, host of Blood Splattered Cinema, to watch 1988 horror shlock fest Hard Rock Nightmare. This movie is notable for a few reasons. First up: the opening scene is so goddamned jarring that I can offer no comparison. The less fun reason: Hard Rock Nightmare was written and directed by Dominick Brascia who, we discovered in the process of putting this episode together, had an insanely checkered past. He accused Charlie Sheen of abusing Corey Haim. Corey Haim’s mother then publicly accused Dominick Brascia of abusing Corey Haim. Brascia died very shortly after. So, if you feel so inclined, you can watch this movie on Shudder and then join us for a discussion on a movie that is, charitably, very shitty.
Next week: 1967 Soviet horror film Viy (available on Shudder and YouTube). And if you wanna get prepared for the Patreon-subscriber-only bonus show, we’ll be watching Society (1989).
