The story of the rock legend that is Alice Cooper is told in a new documentary called "Super Duper Alice Cooper" and is set for a special one off screening at Omniplex cinemas on Thursday 24th April at 8pm..
Super Duper Alice Cooper is the story of Vincent Furnier, a 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, the movie pitches Alice against Vincent in a battle for each other’s souls.
Told in the form of a "doc opera," Super Duper Alice Cooper is 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 body of work have been dug up and melded into montages that soundtrack his life.
