All Music Guide - Bradley Torreano
Serving as the soundtrack to the horror/comedy of the same name, this offers ten blasts of campy punk rock that may not be essential, but certainly entertains. The Cramps steal the disc with the opening track, the rockabilly boogie "Surfin Dead." Roky Erickson contributes the hilariously ghoulish "Burn the Flames," a jangly dirge flavored with gothic keyboards and sound effects. Other notable tracks include T.S.O.L.'s angst anthem "Nothing for You," and SSQ's twisted ode to necromancy, "Tonight We'll Make Love Until We Die."

But the music is very rooted to the time it was created, and may be disappointing to listeners weaned on the punk explosion led by Green Day in the 1990s.

    This album changed my life

    As a 7th grader, I snuck into the local theater and saw this movie. The movie was good, but what entranced me was the music. I immediately became a huge fan of the Flesheaters, TSOL, The Damned, and The Cramps. I think I bought every artists' album this sountrack holds through the years. Buy it. Live it.

    This Album Rocks!!!

    This album is not for everybody, but if you are the type who liked this movie you will love the album! The songs are off the wall and a lot of fun. The highlights being the Cramps' campy-punk-rockabilly
