'Super Duper Alice Cooper' Named 'Best Feature-Length Documentary' At 'Canadian Screen Awards'

The critically acclaimed Banger Films documentary "Super Duper Alice Cooper" was named "Best Feature-Length Documentary", and also took the "Best Editing In A Feature-Length Documentary" prize at Sunday night's Canadian Screen Awards, which honor excellence in the country's film, TV and digital media programming. The event was held at the Four Seasons Centre in Toronto and was hosted by beloved Canadian comic Andrea Martin.

Eagle Rock Entertainment released "Super Duper Alice Cooper" in June 2014 as DVD, Blu-ray and Deluxe Limited Edition Boxed set.

Premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April 2014, "Super Duper Alice Cooper" is the first ever "doc opera" film, presented with a dizzying blend of documentary archive footage, animation, and rock opera.

"Super Duper Alice Cooper" is the story of Vincent Furnier, a preacher's son who struck fear into the hearts of parents everywhere as the ultimate rock star of the bizarre, Alice Cooper. Yet beyond the make-up, there is a richer, deeper story. Presented here is the twisted tale of a teenage Dr. Jekyll whose rock 'n' roll Mr. Hyde almost kills him.

Through the advent of Alice as front man of a rock band group of Phoenix misfits in the '60s, to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the '70s, to his triumphant comeback as '80s glam metal godfather, the film reveals how Alice and Vincent battled for each other's souls, and how these two opposite characters came to co-exist within one mind. Alice's story is told not only by the man himself, but through exclusive interviews with members of the original ALICE COOPER band, Elton John, Iggy Pop, John Lydon and Dee Snider.

The DVD and Blu-ray version of "Super Duper Alice Cooper" include bonus deleted scenes, Alice Cooper interviews from the VH1 Classic series "Metal Evolution", and additional rare footage. The Deluxe Edition features not only the full film on DVD and Blu-ray, but also a second DVD of previously unreleased concert footage from Montreal University in 1972, and a CD of Cooper's performance at the 2009 Montreux Jazz Festival, all housed in an LP-sized box with 60-page hardback photobook.

"Super Duper Alice Cooper" is the creation of Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn of Banger Films, producers of "Iron Maiden: Flight 666" (2009 SXSW Audience Choice Winner) and "Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage" (2010 Grammy-nominated and Tribeca Audience Choice Winner), and much-lauded filmmaker Reginald Harkema (winner of the TIFF Special Jury Prize for his film "Monkey Warfare").
