IS IT A BIRD? IS IT A PLANE? NO, IT'S A ROCK ALIEN! Join Weird Alice and special guest Pearle Harbour on their search for rock 'n' roll as they revisit the newly restored VOYAGE OF THE ROCK ALIENS! Starring Pia Zadora, Craig Scheffer, with a special appearance by Ruth Gordon you won't want to miss this Alien-Dance-Rock-Opera for the ages!
It's Devo meets GREASE in VOYAGE OF THE ROCK ALIENS, a genre-bending musical mutation from the outer limits of the cosmos (aka 1984). A group of new wave extraterrestrials blast through the galaxy in a guitar-shaped spaceship, searching for the truest form of rock 'n' roll. After witnessing Dee Dee (Pia Zidora, HAIRSPRAY) competing to become the top rocker in the small town of "Speelburgh," the UFO lands on Earth and sets off total mayhem—including Michael Berryman (THE HILLS HAVE EYES) as a chainsaw-wielding psychopath. Combining the electric experimentation of early MTV with the spirits of ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW and STAR WARS, VOYAGE OF THE ROCK ALIENS is a glorious, coked-out spectacle that's guaranteed to make you happy. Newly restored from the original camera negative!
