The Strange Case of Alice Cooper is a live concert video released in September 1979, of Alice Cooper performing with his backing band The Ultra Latex Band. The concert was filmed on April 9, 1979 during Cooper's 'Madhouse Rock' Tour in San Diego, California, at the San Diego Sports Arena, in support of the album From The Inside.

Two songs that were performed during the filming, All Strapped Up and Dead Babies, were omitted from the film for unknown reasons.[1] A DVD version, with audio commentary by Alice Cooper, was released May 22, 2012 via Shout! Factory as a US-only release.[2] Shout! Factory has also made the movie available digitally on their network for streaming and download.
