Super Duper Alice Cooper is the twisted tale of a teenage Dr. Jekyll whose rock n roll Mr. Hyde almost kills him. It is the story of Vincent Furnier, preacher’s son, who struck fear into the hearts of parents as Alice Cooper, the ultimate rock star of the bizarre. From the advent of Alice as front man for a group of Phoenix freaks in the ‘60s to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the ‘70s to his triumphant comeback as ‘80s glam metal godfather, we will watch as Alice and Vincent battle for each others’ souls. The is the first ever ‘doc opera’ – a dizzying blend of documentary archive footage, animation and rock opera that will cement forever the legend of Alice Cooper.

Super Duper Alice Cooper premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 17, 2014, and was screened at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival a week later.
