Rock Band / Heavy Metal(1981) dir Gerald Potterton [86 min]

The perfect compliment to our ROCK BAND NIGHT, watching HEAVY METAL is like getting an injection of adolescence straight from the late ’70s. This over-the-top animated film loosely weaves together several short segments using the contrivance of a glowing green ball of energy that’s supposed to be the embodiment of ultimate evil… or something… But who really cares, it’s really all about the sex and violence (and the killer soundtrack) in this absurd and absurdly entertaining classic built on teenage testosterone.
