The King of Lost Vegas, the last bastion of civilization in North America, is dead. The war is on to find anyone powerful enough, with weapons or instruments, to replace him. Buddy, currently the most powerful swordsman/guitarist in the west, is heading to claim the throne. On his way he meets an orphan with a knack for getting into trouble. Meanwhile, the supernatural forces of death, incarnated as a death metal band, will do anything to see that the throne remains empty, and the last bastion of civilization falls.

Mercenary Bowling teams. Undead sewer mutants. Travelling cannibal suburbanite families. Red Army refugees. There's no good way to describe this movie other than as a dystopian, samurai-western musical. Or maybe, as a quirky B-movie with a bit of oddball action-comedy. Anyone who enjoys low budget oddball action movies like Turbo Kid, the Toxic Avenger or Ice Pirates will probably get a kick out of this movie. It has a lot of purposely corny gags , dialogue and one liners, so if you try to take it seriously, odds are you'll hate it.

As a sidenote: I hadn't noticed that the core plots in this movie somehow have a lot in common with those in The Gunslinger/Dark Tower I novel. It's an odd coincidence.
