'Super Duper Alice Cooper' is the twisted tale of a teenage Dr. Jekyll whose rock n’ roll Mr. Hyde almost kills him. It is the story of Vincent Furnier, a preacher’s son who struck fear into the hearts of parents as ALICE COOPER, the ultimate rock star of the bizarre.
From the advent of Alice as front man for a group of Phoenix freaks in the 60’s to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the 70s to his triumphant comeback as 80s glam metal godfather, we will watch as Alice and Vincent battle for each other’s’ souls.
Alice’s story is told not only by the man himself, but through exclusive interviews with members of the original Alice Cooper band, Elton John, Iggy Pop, John Lydon, and Dee Snider."
The movie is the creation of Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn at Banger Films, producers of "Iron Maiden: Flight 666" (2009 SXSW Audience Choice Winner) and "Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage" (2010 Grammy-nominated and Tribeca Audience Choice Winner), and filmmaker Reginald Harkema, winner of the TIFF Special Jury Prize for his film "Monkey Warfare." Press release.
Alice Cooper, a great showman who strides the theatrical stage with ferocious and surreal imagination that fills auditoriums and still resonates with the 'Toronto chicken' of 45 years ago. 'Super Duper Alice Cooper', a stylised documentary movie has a resounding predictability - an all American journey from clean living preacher's son through a bucket full of booze and coke to seeing the light and the prodigal son's return to the fold American style.
'Super Duper Alice Cooper' will be screened with exclusive pre-recorded Q/A with Alice as a special one day event 22nd April 2014 at selected UK cinemas.
