Voyage of the Rock Aliens (1984)

A film about an alien rock band who travel in a guitar shaped spaceship searching the universe for rock music should already have your attention but if it doesn’t let me add that they have a robot called  Robot 1359 who voiced by Hero of Cult Peter Cullen. Still not grabbed you? Well Jermaine Jackson also pops up in the film to add some cool and smooth!

Directed by James Fargo and Bob Giraldi, Voyage of the Rock Aliens opens with our alien rock band crew discovering Earth and noting that it appears to be the most rockingest planet in the universe so Robot 1359 wakes the crew to visit the planet! voy pilot

The film budget then vanishes as a rocket telephone booth lands in the town of Speelburgh and ABCD (pronounced “Absid”) (Tom Nolan) aliens rock bandmates go exploring. They encourage Robot 1359 to take the form of a fire hydrant to disguise himself. Unbeknownst to them the Sheriff (Ruth Gordon) witnesses their landing and becoming obsessed with alien invaders.

Meanwhile high school singing sensation Dee Dee (Pia Zadora) is in love with Frankie (Craig Sheffer), the leader of Speelburgh’s local high school rock band, The Pack (played by Jimmy and the Mustangs). Dee Dee’s dream is to sing with the band. We learn that that Frankie does loves her but does not want her in the band.

Elsewhere, a giant mutant monster with tentacles happens to live in nearby Lake Erie. The monster is the result of environmental pollution.

As the aliens, played by the rock band Rhema, search the area, they encounter Dee Dee, Frankie and The Pack at a local hangout. Absid literally loses his head over Dee Dee (i.e. he explodes and needs to be put back together by his crew) and decides to win her heart.

Meanwhile, his cohorts search for specimens such as flowers, leaves and cow chips. STUVWXYZ (pronounced “Stovitz”) (Patrick Byrnes) stumbles across the path of two crazed mass murderers, Chainsaw (Michael Berryman) and The Breather (Wallace Merck), who recently escaped from The Speelburgh Asylum for the Criminally Insane.

Feeling dejected by Frankie’s refusal to let her sing, Dee Dee succumbs to the charms of Absid, who asks her to be the singer of his band at the Heidi High Cotillion Dance and Battle of the Bands. Frankie and The Pack arrive at the school to keep the aliens out… but they cannot stop them because of the aliens’ powers: they teleport into the bathroom through the toilets. Dee Dee finally gets her chance to sing. It’s a battle of the bands between the aliens and The Pack!

Who will win? What will the monster do? Wait…there were serial killers who turned up to?
