Slaughterhouse Rock (1988, USA) C-85m. ** D: Dimitri Logothetis. Starring Toni Basil, Nicholas Celozzi, Tom Reilly, Donna Denton, Hope Marie Carlton. Fair horror movie about a musician who is plagued by nightmares and then visits the prison of Alcatraz where he finds the explanation for his dreams: A demon is trying to enter the world of the living and starts possessing his friends. Interesting mix between the Freddy Krueger films and possibly HELLRAISER (1987), let down mostly by unconvincing sequences and poor acting. The effects are good, though. Atmospheric score by Mark Mothersbaugh. Alternative titles: HELL ISLAND, ALCATRAZ HORROR.
