Summary SUPER DUPER ALICE COOPER is the story of Vincent Furnier, preacher's son, who struck fear into the hearts of parents everywhere 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 sixties to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the seventies to the winking comeback as glam metal godfather in the eighties, one will watch in wonder as Alice and Vincent battle for each other's souls. The story is told in the form of a "doc opera," a dizzying blend of documentary and rock opera that combines audio interviews with a bounty of Alice Cooper archive footage. Concerts, TV appearances, movie cameos, newspaper headlines, magazine spreads and many other visual elements have been cut out, layered and collaged like a cinematic View-Master.

Note: The following text may contain spoilers

SUPER DUPER ALICE COOPER is a documentary about the musician, charting his transformation from a Detroit preacher's son into a snake-wrangling shock rocker.

Language

Uses of the terms 'f**k' and 'motherf**ker'. Other, milder terms such as 'shit' and 'asshole'.

Drugs

Cooper's cocaine addiction is explored and there are references to him 'freebasing' and locking himself in his house 'with a rock the size of a baseball'. There are also references to celebrities smoking marijuana and taking acid during the sixties. The references to drug abuse are entirely aversive and it is made clear that Cooper came very close to death.

References to a chicken having been ripped apart by audience members during a rock concert. There is also footage of Cooper breaking baby dolls apart on stage and pretending to hang himself and have his head chopped off by a guillotine. Blood effects are quite clearly fake.
