Black Roses (1988) takes place in the fictional town Mill Basin, where nothing exciting ever happens. That is until the Black Roses come to town to perform for the teenagers. The good Christians are against it, but the mayor compares them to the Beatles and Elvis, so they allow it. They even go to the first concert that is totally beautiful and wholesome, until the conservatives and the mayor leave.

This cheese-fest is filled with amazing puppets and effects, making me think the creators of this film were inspired by Gwar even though King Kobra played most of the band’s music. 

The cast in this one is interesting, with many people I’ve never heard of except John Martin. I didn’t know his name until I looked up the cast, but he looked familiar, and that’s because he guest starred in tons of 1980s TV Shows.

4 Stars

Black Roses is super fun to experience, and I gave it 4 out of 5 Stars.
