B-Movie Trailer of the Day!
I remember loving this movie as a kid. Also, I am almost always for movies being made based solely on the premise of a song. I'm still waiting for Splish Splash and Pappa-Omm-Mow-Mow to work their way out of development hell. It's 1988's
One-Eyed, One-Horned Flying The Purple People Eater starring a possibly closeted Doogie Howser Neil Patrick Harris and Dirty San-Screech Dustin Diamond! Plus, a slew of supporting stars such as Chubby Checker, Kareem Abdul Jabar and Little Richard. The film pretty much follows the exact lyrics of the song. A one-eyed, one-horned, flying purple people eater comes down to planet Earth because he wants to "...get a job in a rock n' roll band." He can even play his own horn, that one on his head. Good thing Billy (Neil Patrick Harris) is a member of a fledgling child's rock band called, something. Not only does the purple people eater help Billy learn to rock, but with the help of the new band, Billy's family can finally pay the greedy landlord and not be evicted! I know, right? Thankfully, this film is avaiable in parts on YouTube so you have no excuse to avoid it's retarded brillance. None!
