Trick or Treat (1986)

Tort_CoversOn October 21, 2015, Michael J. Fox took a well deserved victory lap for his role in the Back To The Future trilogy.

On October 31, 2015, we would like to give his Family Ties co-star Marc Price (aka Skippy) a victory lap of his own, in celebration of his lead role in the movie Trick Or Treat.

A classic hair metal horror tale of a young hessian, playing vinyl backwards, and summoning his rock idol back from the grave.

The soundtrack is scored by UK Hair Metal band Fastway, and they did a pretty great job of dialing up the Aquanet zeitgeist.

The film flopped, but the soundtrack re-established Fastway as a hard-hitting metal band. The soundtrack was a moderate success, and stayed on the Billboard Top 200 chart for eleven months. The success of the soundtrack, combined with the very little money the band received, caused in-fighting, and the group disbanded. – Wikipedia

The film also boasts some cameos from Gene Simmons and Ozzy Osbourne, both playing it straight, which was a nice twist. Also of note is the Cinematographer on this film, Robert Elswit, who worked on just about every of Paul Thomas Anderson film.
