HA!
27 August 2003 | by TasteBloodSee all my reviews

It's movies like these that become camp classics. It should have been called Marilyn Manson Vs. Airplane 1975. Ok, so, this "rocker" who looks a lot like a Crow reject and his band decide to webcast an concert aboard a 747 at 35,000 feet, complete with thunder and fog special effects during the show. He brings along his number one fans (who all look like the clearance rack at Hot Topic attacked them) Then satantic terrorists hijack the concert in order to crash the plane into the plains of Kansas (!). Mr. Rocker must then save the day by landing the plane, all while keeping his Crow makeup from smearing, while the "gothic" passengers scream and cry all the way home.

Where the hell is Karen Black when you need her?
