Product Description:

After miraculously graduating San Dimas high school, Bill and Ted are preparing for a battle of the bands. But somewhere in the future the evil De Nomolos creates identical Bill and Ted robots to kill the originals, take their place and lose the contest. Bill and Ted must dodge Death and fulfill their most resplendent destiny.

Plot Synopsis:

This time out, our two vacuous but loveable teenagers are thrown off a cliff and sent to Hell, where they are tortured with a succession of stylishly realized nightmares. The duo need to escape the fires of Hades in enough time to make it to the "battle of the bands" their rock group has entered. In order to free themselves they engage the "Grim Reaper" in a gut-wrenching series of contests testing the limits of human discipline and intelligence. Victorious, they return to Earth to battle the pair of evil robotic doubles who originally killed them, and have since taken their places -- wreaking havoc with the dudes' personal lives.

Production Notes:

  • Feature film debut for director Pete Hewitt.
  • The name of Bill and Ted's heavy metal band is "Wyld Stallynz."
  • The sequences in Hell with the "Grim Reaper" are a comic hommage to Ingmar Bergman's "The Seventh Seal" (1957). In Bergman's film the protagonist plays a game of chess with "Death" in order to win a short reprieve from his fate and come back to life. In "Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey", the duo challenge "His Royal Deathness" to games of Battleship, Clue and Twister.
