Super Duper Alice Cooper

SUPER DUPER ALICE COOPER is the story of Vincent Furnier, preacher's son, who struck fear into the hearts of parents everywhere 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 sixties to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the seventies to the winking comeback as glam metal godfather in the eighties, one will watch in wonder as Alice and Vincent battle for each other's souls. The story is told in the form of a "doc opera," a dizzying blend of documentary and rock opera that combines audio interviews with a bounty of Alice Cooper archive footage. Concerts, TV appearances, movie cameos, newspaper headlines, magazine spreads and many other visual elements have been cut out, layered and collaged like a cinematic View-Master.

Alongside the hits that defined an era, overlooked gems of Alice Cooper's oeuvre have been dug up and melded into montages that soundtrack his life. Footage from old scary movies serves as allegories for Alice's madness.
