Alice Cooper Trashes The World

Author: Malcolm Dome

Shot on Alice's last UK tour in Birmingham, this is a well filmed representation of what the Alice show was all about. The sad thing is that, while I admire the man enormously for his gore attire and general attitude, the last time around everything was so limited by the airplay-safe, condomed music of songs like 'Poison' and 'House Of Fire'.

Still, director Nigel Dick's brief was to capture what was there and make it as exciting as possible, and he's succeeded to the point of turning a generally drab affair (save for the 'Nightmare' sequence) into something quite watchable, which says more about Dick than Alice! One for aficionados.
