Trick Or Treat (1986)
Ozzy Osbourne plays a televangelist in Trick or Treat. Gene Simmons plays a rock DJ. Skippy Henderson from the ‘80s sitcom Family Ties (Marc Price) plays a put upon teenage metalhead who raises a homicidal hair-rocker from the dead and unwittingly unleashes murderous mosh pit chaos at a high school dance. If that doesn’t sound to you like a mid-’80s bag of pure metal Treats, you can go Trick yourself.
Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey (2005)
Anthropologist and metal devotee Sam Dunn, who also co-directed this essential documentary, travels the world to observe and report on the origins, expansion, and ongoing endurance of heavy metal, talking to fans, artists, and cultural observers. The same team’s 2008 follow-up, Global Metal, is equally indispensable.
