Film Series: This Is Spinal Tap

1984. USA. Dir: Rob Reiner. With Christopher Guest, Harry Shearer. 82 min.

There’s something about this album cover that’s so black, it’s like how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.
Reiner’s landmark mockumentary about a hapless metal band has outlived the scene it set out to parody, thanks to its brilliantly dry humor and such timeless tunes as “Sex Farm,” “Stonehenge” and “Lick My Love Pump.”
