Some slut is giving some guy head in the back of his van when they're attacked by a werewolf thus begins "The Band From Hell". The main plot is about Tony who comes home to his college town in hopes of rekindling his relationship with ex-girlfriend Rosemary. She doesn't want to hear anything about it even though Kevin, her gay best friend, is attempting to smooth things over between the two. Tony is able to win her back in no time at all though with a song sung at open Mic night, but Rosemary isn't the only one amazed at the performance, as the Romainian rock band, Neowolf, wants him to join their band (their previous band mate was killed earlier in the movie). He's then promptly seduced and turned into a werewolf. It's up to Rosemary to save him.
Rosemary is a love-struck idiot it seems, I couldn't buy why she thinks Tony is a werewolf, basically she just sees a picture of him screwing another girl & automatically jumps to that conclusion. What?? Really?!? With the general conceit of the film so ridiculous, I found it hard to get into all that followed. Especially since it was so inane, badly acted, and the special effects were slightly below "Buffy"-caliber. And the last half hour gets REALLY bad.
Eye Candy: Stephanie Katz gets topless, an unknown actress also gets topless at 27 minutes in, and a body-double for Heidi Johanningmeier shows T&A
