New York, NY (August 18, 2014)—Welcome to the nightmare! 92Y kicks off Halloween week with a screening of the “doc opera” Super Duper Alice Cooper on Monday, October 27 at 7 pm. The screening is followed by a conversation with Alice Cooper himself, led by Rolling Stone‘s Anthony DeCurtis. Cooper is currently on tour with Motley Crüe, including a New York show at Madison Square Garden on October 28.
Super Duper Alice Cooper, which premiered earlier this year at the Tribeca Film Festival, and was released on June 3 by Eagle Rock Entertainment on DVD, Blu-Ray and deluxe limited edition formats, 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 front man 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.
