Super Duper Alice Cooper is the title of the latest documentary from Banger FIlms. Banger have good rock form: they made Iron Maiden’s Flight 666 and Rush’s Beyond the Lighted Stage.
The 97-minute Cooper film is described as “the twisted tale of a teenage Dr Jekyll whose rock’n'roll Mr Hyde almost kills him”.
Makers Sam Dunn and Scot McFadyen explain: “It’s the story of Vincent Furnier, 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 frontman for a group of Phoenix freaks in the eighties toglam metal godfather, we watch as Alice and Vincent battle for each other’s souls.
“The film is the first-ever ‘doc opera’ – a dizzying blend of documentary archive footage, animation and rock opera that will cement forever the legend of Alice Cooper.”
