Black Roses is a 1988 horror film that brings together the worlds of heavy metal music and the supernatural. The film follows the story of a small town that is at risk of being consumed by evil forces, all thanks to the appearance of a seemingly innocent heavy metal band who have come to perform in the town. The film opens with the arrival of the Black Roses, a heavy metal band led by Damian (John Martin), who are coming to a small town in order to perform a concert. The arrival of the band is met with controversy and concern from the town's residents, who fear that the band's music will have a negative influence on their children.

Despite the concerns of the town's leaders, the Black Roses are allowed to proceed with their concert. Initially, the concert seems to be going well, with the crowd enjoying the music and the band's stage show. However, as the concert progresses, things begin to take a dark turn.

It soon becomes clear that the Black Roses are not just an ordinary band, but rather agents of the supernatural, who are using their music to slowly corrupt the town's youth. As the band's influence grows, the town's teens begin to adopt a more aggressive and violent attitude, culminating in a number of brutal murders.

The film's main protagonist, Matthew (played by Sal Viviano), is a high school teacher who is determined to uncover the truth about the Black Roses and put an end to their sinister plans. His efforts are aided by a number of other concerned citizens, including the local sheriff, played by Ken Swofford.

As the film progresses, the tension builds and the body count rises, as Matthew and his fellow townspeople battle against the evil forces of the Black Roses. Along the way, they must confront a variety of supernatural threats, including demons, ghosts, and other malevolent entities.

Overall, Black Roses is a fun and entertaining horror film that will appeal to fans of both heavy metal music and supernatural horror. While the film may not be a masterpiece of cinema, it is a well-crafted and enjoyable horror movie that delivers plenty of scares and thrills.

The cast of the film is solid, with John Martin delivering a chilling performance as the demonic leader of the Black Roses. Sal Viviano is also impressive as the film's hero, while Ken Swofford provides a strong supporting performance as the town's sheriff.
