Heading out for a headlining show, a rock group told that the upcoming showcase will be a career-making gig instead find the area deserted and populated by a race of parasite-controlled beings that threaten to overrun the world, forcing them to stop the dangerous creatures.
Overall, this was a rather fun and enjoyable effort. What really works so well here is the film's high-energy setup and propensity for delivering a bucketload of blood, gore, and other bodily fluids. As this kicks into the series of encounters through the town with the deformed creatures unleashing all manner of spit and bile that carries on through the rest of the film, the encounters generate all kinds of over-the-top moments that are incredibly silly in concept but given a vicious enough tone to make for a rather impressive setup at play here. Given that there's always the threat of them being turned into one of the creatures and looking to take over the world that comes about due to the impressive setup involving the girls' relationship with each other which comes together quite nicely. They're all quite likable and develop into a highly effective portrait of friendship and being able to overcome the odds which are factors that give the film a lot to enjoy. There are some flaws to be had with this one. Among the biggest drawbacks here is the highly uninvolved storyline that doesn't have much in the way of depth here. This takes the simplified route of putting together a reason for the group to visit the town, encounter some adversity and then it's a non-stop ride from that point on which serves this well enough to keep the interest moving but fails to set any kind of definitive conclusions about anything. There's nothing about what's affecting the citizens due to their possessed-like state but zombie-like behavior that's never resolved. Further issues, including the origins of the fabled gig that gets them there in the first place or what the actual threat really is and where it came from. That also speaks to a strange figure following them around which is never explained, and the whole thing is undone somewhat slightly in that regard.
