Blu-Ray review - "Super Duper Alice Cooper" Documentary

Badger Films the company behind some of the coolest "Rock Docs" released in the past 10 years including "Iron Maiden: Flight 666" and "Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage" have just released "Super Duper Alice Cooper" into the home video market place.

"Super Duper Alice Cooper" tells the story of  Vincent Damon Furnier a young boy who wanted to grow up and rock like The Beatles and eventually forms the Alice Cooper Band and then becomes... Alice Cooper!

The film is told through new interviews with Cooper, guitarist Dennis Dunaway, manager Shep Gordon and many, many more.  Visually the film uses archival stills and unseen footage to take you inside the mind of Alice during his highs, lows and inevitable highs again.

First and foremost "Super Duper Alice Cooper" is humorous but at times can be extremely shocking as well.  The early 80's film clips of  Cooper as he plummets to his lowest of lows are hard to watch.  His appearance on Tom Snyder's "Tomorrow" show is so jarring that it is a miracle that Alice is alive, healthy and definitely kicking 30 years later.

Whether you are just a casual fan or a diehard fanatic "Super Duper Alice Cooper" will keep you entertained from start to finish.  Long live the creator of shock rock!

Drumroll please... 10 out of 10 drumsticks!!!
