Rock & Rule

This dated but criminally overlooked sci-fi animated film comes to us from 1983. It spins the story of a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by rat-like humans. Lording over this wasteland is rock 'n' roll superstar Mok, who kidnaps a talented female singer with the aim of forcing her to participate in a demonic ritual. Naturally, her rebellious, guitar-strumming boyfriend goes looking for her with the help of his comic-relief bandmates. Cheap Trick, Debbie Harry, Lou Reed and Iggy Pop supply the music, which is the most important element of this Heavy Metal-influenced adult toon. 77 minutes PG.
