Rock'n'Roll Nightmare (R) -  -  - Directed by John Fasano  - Synapse Films  -  - Canadian heavy-metaller Jon-Mikl Thor is  in all his - ber-buff, blond-tasseled brilliance  John Triton, - frontman of the hair-metal band Tritonz. The group, in - need of new material, decides to hole up in an old - farmhouse, where, inexplicably, a demon popped out of - an oven and killed a family 10 years earlier. One by one, - band members are possessed by various demons, most - of which resemble the offspring of a Muppet and a dirty - latex condom. But just when you think it's a basic horror - flick, the film transmogrifies with a shocking, ludicrously - awesome twist that M. Night Shyamalan surprisingly - didn't have anything to do with. Filled with chain-mail - codpieces, skeletal demons and balls-to-the-wall - rocking out, Rock'n'Roll Nightmare is one of the - greatest films ever. Ever, I say.  Louis - Fowler

Masters of Horror: Lucky McKee's - Sick Girl (NR)  -  - Directed by Lucky McKee  - Anchor Bay Entertainment -  -  - Sick Girl is the best episode, so far, in the - Masters of Horror series. Blackly comical, - McKee's entry is just further proof that he's already a - true Master. Ida Teeter (the strangely cute - Angela Bettis) is a dorky, lovelorn lesbian entomologist - who falls for a shy girl sitting in her lab's lobby, drawing - pictures of pixies. At the same time, Ida receives a - strange specimen in the mail  a truly frightening South - American bug with horns and pinchers and whatnot. - When Ida and her new girlfriend Misty are in throes of - passion, said bug sticks its feeler-thing into girlfriend's - ear. Soon, Misty becomes prone to outbursts of anger - and, well, mutating into a giant bug. It all leads up to a - twisted ending that had me recoiling in freakish glee, - leaving me one Sick boy. But it was worth it.  - Louis Fowler
