Coffin_Joe’s review published on Letterboxd:
This has all the makings of a fun, cool 3 1/2 star movie for me. Clever story, great music, colourful characters, fun horror references. I'm all for it. Then there's George Clooney. I'm not usually one to fawn over actors (especially mainstream actors), but he is so frigging cool that I can't turn away. I'll watch him in shit that I normally have no interest in (One Fine Day, Batman, Gravity), Listening to him on Howard Stern? I'm giddy. I cannot for the life of me think of anyone more charismatic. His performance easily bumps this up another full star or more (then again, my ratings are so arbitrary, who cares anyway?).
I also had never heard of The Blasters before this movie. Man, they're good!
Now I'm going to have to go dig out my Return to Horror High dvd.
