GHOSTROADS - A Japanese Rock'n'Roll Story
An American ‘50s-style comedy horror film starring Japan’s hottest rock and roll bands: It’s a Hard Day’s Night in Japan with a Faustian twist.

Selected for World Premiere at 2017 RAINDANCE FILM FESTIVAL

Producer Mike Rogers is proud to announce that his first independent feature will have its World Premiere at Raindance 2017. This is Japan’s first ever rock ’n’ roll ghost comedy movie – a stunning combination of live action, rock n roll and Tokyo Japan’s underground scene.

Ghostroads – A Japanese Rock n Roll Ghost Story is about a struggling rock musician who dreams of success. He meets a ghost who helps him to write the perfect song. But the ghost wants a trade. Just how high a price is our would-be rock star prepared to pay for fame and immortality?

Ghostroads features Japan’s best garage, underground and beat bands, including The Neatbeats (the Japanese Beatles); The Privates (Japan’s answer to the Buzzcocks) and The 50 Kaitenz (The Japanese Ramones) and features legendary DJ Rodney Bingenheimer as ‘himself’ (Formerly KROQ Los Angeles – currently Little Steven’s Garage on Sirius Radio) and Darrell Harris as ‘the ghost’…

The Screamin’ Telstars are a Japanese retro rock band fronted by Tony (Mr. Pan – leader of The Neatbeats who are considered one of Japan’s most respected musicians in Japan’s top underground band). The band has been playing together for years but has never met with any real commercial success. One day, Tony’s amp blows up and he goes to buy a new one at a guitar shop with a mysterious owner. Unbeknown to Tony, the amp has a history behind it, and from it comes a ghost who promises fame and immortality in return for a sacrifice: namely getting rid of his band – forever. The ghost also promises Tony stardom greater than his old rival from his student days, the ‘rock god’ Shinzo, but will he pay the price?
