Judy (Chet Siegel), Max (Jeff Riddle) and Mel (Ruby McCollister) are Duh, a punk band yet to be discovered by a larger crowd, but hey, they're about to embark on their first tour - when their tour van is repossessed. So the three are more happy to accept the offer from a stranger called Peckerhead (David Littleton) to not only be their driver on tour but also their roadie. Sure, the guy seems a bit eccentric, but also good-natured. Now as is almost customary for punk bands at small venues, our trio gets ripped off by the promoter at their first stop - and a short time later, Judy finds Peckerhead, his face weirdly contorted, leaning over the dead body of said promoter, feasting on his entrails. Of course, our heroes want to make a hasty getaway, but Peckerhead has the keys to the van, and when he - his face looking normal again - catches up with them he blames everything on a condition he can usually control, he just got mad at the promoter and wanted to stand up for the band. And that "condition" only comes to the fore at midnight anyways, and he'd never turn on his friends. Judy wants to part ways immediately, but Max and Mel vote for sticking with Peckerhead. The next night, when the band's sleeping in the van in a parking lot, Peckerhead kills two metalheads (Alex McKelvey, Josh Peck), and again he just stood up for the band. And when he's not killing people, he's actually a real asset to Duh, as he's good at selling merch and getting the crowd excited at gigs, so eventually he wins the respect of Judy even ... that is until she later learns Peckerhead has killed some staff at a motel they were staying at, not out of any need but sheer bloodlust. She wants to pick up her bandmates to after all make a quick getaway, but finds them taken captive by a rival gang (Ryan Conrath, Adam R. Brown, Nicholas Santos, Joey Maron) who want to get their slot at an all-important festival, and once they also capture Judy, our heroes can only hope that Peckerhead will come to the rescue ...

 

Above all, Uncle Peckerhead is quite simply fun, and it should work well as a party flick, as it has the right mix of comedy, gruesomeness, punk rock, and is drenched in enough alcohol to speak to any partying crowd. That said though, beneath its party movie exterior, the film actually also has quite some heart, thanks to its very sympathetic portrayal of its main monster that really transcends serialkiller movie standards, while Judy makes a relatable if fallible protagonist. And the fact that the humour's mostly above gross-out level while the musical performances are short enough to avoid to become boring also really works for the movie, as does a solid cast, which all makes this an entertaining ride for sure!
