Kill Mode (2019) (Sky UK Video) The Old Man
(Ted's new film. made in The Netherlands in 2019, was released on Sky UK video 3/17/20, and can be watched on Amazon Prime Video. The story takes place in a future in which a virus has wiped out much of civilization. There’s a cure but only The Company has it, and they can charge what they want for it. That was eight years ago. David (Dave Mantel) was a rebel fighter. Now he works in an illegal clinic, subverting The Company through other means. But when former comrades Richard (Burt Rutteman) and Alex (Yasmin Blake) turn up with a plan to liberate the cure to the virus he’s drawn back in. After a run-in with an old man (Ted Neeley, Jesus Christ Superstar, Alleluia! The Devil’s Carnival) who praises the company, even as he begs for spare doses of treatment, he hooks up with what remains of his old team. A raid on a Company facility gets them the cure. But it isn’t a formula, it’s Molly who’s been held captive and exploited for her natural immunity all these years. See the teaser/trailers below, and you can watch the whole film on Amazon Prime.)

Dead Ringer (1982) (CBS Video) Back-up singer for Meatloaf
(Meat Loaf, the singer is followed around by a fan named Marvin (also played by Meat Loaf) but through concert after
concert and song after song, the performer manages to stay one step ahead of his admiring pursuer. The singer's
entourage and an out-of-touch television reporter provide some comic relief, in-between the musical numbers. — Eleanor
Hard Country (1981) (Universal Pictures) Wesley
(Jan-Michael Vincent stars as Kyle Richardson, who works at a dead-end job in a Texas chain-link fence factory. In the tradition of such earlier films as Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, Richardson enjoys himself only on weekends when he whoops it up with his buddies at the local saloon. His carousing exacts a toll on his relationship with Jodie Lynn Palmer, (Kim Basinger, in her film debut). Finally, Jodie delivers an ultimatum: either settle down and get married, or she'll skeedaddle to California, there to try her luck as a country-western singer. Real-life C&W star Tanya Tucker co-stars as Jodie's best friend and role model. — Hal Erickson. Also stars: Michael Parks, Gailard Sartain, Daryl Hannah and Richard Moll)

A Perfect Couple (1979) Teddy
(An innocuous romantic comedy, courtesy of Robert Altman. Dooley is a lonely middle-aged man who is completely
dominated by autocratic Greek father, Vadnis. Through a computer dating service, Dooley meets Heflin and is attracted to
her. She's a rather insecure woman who plays in a rock band led by Neeley (who starred in JESUS CHRIST, SUPERSTAR).
Neeley rules his extended family of musicians, singers, and hangers-on every bit as autocratically as Vadnis controls his
more traditional family. Vadnis would never approve of his son dating Heflin, while Neeley so drives his people they barely
have time for a social life. The film focuses on these two people (Dooley & Heflin) as they attempt to deal with their
"family" problems and come to terms with one another.)

"...a rock band led by Neeley (who starred in JESUS CHRIST, SUPERSTAR). Neeley rules his extended family of musicians, singers, and hangers-on every bit as autocratically as Vadnis controls his more traditional family... Neeley so drives his people they barely have time for a social life...Neeley and the "Keepin' 'Em Off the Streets" band provide some worthwhile music, including the songs "Hurricane" (Tom Berg, Ted Neeley, Allan Nicholls) and "Fantasy" (Nicholls)."

film was done, but had it listed from when she met Ted years back, so I am listing it for the time being. Anyone know anything
