In the future, a health nut and his tag-along girlfriend become trapped in a drive-in theater that has become a concentration camp for outcast youths, who are placated with new wave music, junk food, drugs, exploitation movies, and racism.
In a totalitarian future where deviants are held in rehabilitation camps, a freedom fighter and a wrongly-accused prisoner form an alliance to survive their decadent oppressors' game of kill-or-be-killed - and turn the tide against them.
In this movie based on Grant Page, the famous real life Australian master stuntman best known for his work on Mad Max, Grant, who plays himself, goes to Los Angeles to work on a television series. He uses his spare time to lend his expertise to rock band Sorcery (real life band played by themselves), whose act features dangerous stunts and a fantasy storyline focused on duels between the King of the Wizards and the Prince of Darkness, with his cousin playing the Prince. Page helps the duo develop pyrotechnic magic tricks for their shows, and also finds himself in a budding romance with a magazine writer as he recounts to her his own exploits as a stuntman and daredevil as well as various stunts by other greats. The movie also features Grant's stunts from other movies as a showcase of his amazing but dangerous work.Written by
According to director Brian Trenchard-Smith, this picture was not intended to be a vehicle for the rock band Sorcery, it was intended to bring Grant Page to the American audiences. Sorcery turned out to be a the best band for the movie. See more »
Enjoyed the picture. The band "Sorcery" were amazing as well. Sorcery's stage show was the best presentation of music and magic ever seen!
The good vs. evil theme was never so well played out on any stage before. "Hard rock music/heavy metal magic" was the way to describe this group. They were and continue today to be the only magic/music show of it's kind in the history of ROCK! Not any other group ever came close to this! If you're into hard rock music and/or some of the best magic illusions ever performed live,don't miss this one. See the movie and the band.
