New Release: Starlight & Superfish DVD

Starlight & Superfish movie scene

Glam rock comes swings by purgatory in Starlight & Superfish.

Vanguard will release the 2010 glam rock-filled independent comedy film Starlight & Superfish on DVD on Oct. 25, for the list price of $19.95.

Written by Rob Hess and directed by Steve Kopera (the team behind How Clarence Became Truly Normal), the movie introduces us to a fella named Nick (Hayes Hargrove, Beyond the Pale), who discovers one day that he’s stuck in his apartment and can’t move anything, be it a door or cabinet or even his guppies’ fish food.

It’s only when a British glam-rock band bursts through the door and informs him that he is dead that Nick begins to understand what’s going on. Nick also learns that in order to escape his purgatory of abandoned dreams, he must learn the life lessons he ignored while he was still living. Then, he’ll be judged and sent to either Heaven or Hell, a fairly jarring concept for an atheist like Nick!

Also starring Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bridesmaids) and Tim Brennen — both of whom are veterans of the Los Angeles-based comedy troupe The Groundlings, along with leading man Hayes Hargrove — Starlight & Superfish is premiering in the U.S. on DVD.

No bonus features have been announced for the DVD.
