Quiet Riot Documentary First Trailer Revealed — Exclusive Video

Quiet Riot

Next year, Quiet Riot fans (and no doubt all metal fans throughout the world) will probably be banging their heads in response to an amazing new documentary being finished up right now in Los Angeles.

Actress and filmmaker Regina Russell, who also happens to be engaged to Quiet Riot veteran drummer Frankie Banali, is hard at work finishing up a long-form labor of love about the legendary group.

“I absolutely love their music,” she told Noisecreep recently, “along with they did. They unleashed the power of the hair bands of the 80s when record companies thought hard rock bands had become dinosaurs. So I want to tell their story. These were real people in a real band that changed the face of music and so I thought it was time to make this happen.”

Titled ‘Now You’re Here, There’s No Way Back: The Quiet Riot Movie,’ the film is a definitive look at a seminal heavy metal band that topped the charts with the first #1 heavy metal album (1983′s ‘Metal Health’) which sold over 10 million copies worldwide, and paved the way for successful metal bands like, Motley Crue, Poison, and Bon Jovi, turning the 1980s into the decade of heavy metal hair bands.

The band still tours with a new singer that replaced original vocalist Kevin DuBrow who died of a drug overdose in 2007.

In addition to her acting work, Russell has also done charity work for animal rights groups, has written and directed public service announcements, and even did a celebrity clothing auction on The Today Show to raise money for The United Way.

But right now her focus is on the documentary.

“It’s been an amazing experience so far,” she said. “The people that I’ve been able to interview for the documentary, some very recognizable names, have all spoken from the heart about Quiet Riot. Dee Snider, Glenn Hughes, Eddie Trunk are just a few. Then there’s the perspective of the other guys in the band and when you put it all together, a very interesting picture emerges. Quiet Riot probably doesn’t get enough credit or respect for what they achieved. But when you take a good look at their career and listen to the people I’ve had the chance to film, they really do represent a very important chapter in music and I hope that once we release our film, that people will take another look at them.”

Russel added, “I am working hard in the hopes of having it ready to be released through the film festival circuit next year while seeking a theatrical distributor.”
