I loved it !!!, 20 March 2005
Author: hfmg from EastCoast
This was a tremendously fun ride. It is a special moment when I actually fall into the story line and feel total immersion into the actors portrayal of an alternate world created by the skillful hands of gifted screenwriters and directors. To me, that is what entertainment is really about, the captured experience during the circus ride of sights and sounds a movie provides. I don't know why I didn't discover this flick sooner, I certainly try to keep an eye out for modern interpretations of the classics. This was a fine job interpreting the classic Hyde monster. I felt it was much more believable than the digitized mountainous Hyde's in the Van-Helsing and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen stories. You certainly owe it to yourself to try this more believable version out. The combination of an engaging soundtrack, believable actors, and a gripping version of the storyline kept me immersed throughout. I offer a "job well done" to this crew!!!
The "Alice Cooper Show" taken to a professional level!, 16 December 2003
Take a great classical story, superb music, beautiful women and talented acting, throw in some Rock N' Roll excitement, and you have the Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde Rock 'n Roll Musical! This is a fun and entertaining movie!
Alan Bernhoft is just awesome.

Okay, a while back I stumbled upon this films website while it was searching for a distributor. I was very interested in it and wanted to listen to the song samples, but they wouldn't work on my ( old) computer. So I wrote to Alan asking if there was a copy of the CD that I could buy. He writes back saying there is no offical copy yet, but he would be willing to burn me a copy and send it. So this man, who spent all this time on his film and is searching for someone to handle his film, burns a copy of the CD and sends it to me with postage paid. Absolutely no cost to me. He is a truly nice, talented man, and I wish him all the best. By the way if you read this, Alan. I still love the Cd, thanks so much.

A great rock and roll musical!, 21 March 2005
Author: sp728 from United States
I was truly inspired by this musical. The Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Rock and Roll Musical is a small independent film that has a great story and wonderful music. It's not to often you see a rock and roll musical with such great musical talent. I understand this film was shot on a very low budget and on weekends. I think any independent film maker would enjoy seeing this film. The songs are great. I was wondering if there is CD with the music? Does anybody have it. It is great stuff. I hope this film is seen by a large audience. It's just great fun! Can't wait to see Bernhoft again. I hope he has something coming out soon! Maybe another horror musical?
