Raise Your Metal Horns and Chomp On The “Deathgasm” Trailer (2015)

Logo - Deathgasm - 2015

Thanks to the fine folks at Topless Robot and some other media allies for the cause, I learned of this upcoming Horror/Comedy film entitled “Deathgasm” and well, its a film that has a truly Heavy Metal spirit to it even if that spirit is from the Netherworld and seeks to devour us whole. Let’s let the trailer give you a solid insight about it and then we can chat a little more. They say “The Road To Hell is Paved In Metal” so let’s see just how much.

The Plot:
After his mother is institutionalized, misfit Brodie is sent to live with his fundamentalist Christian Uncle Albert and Aunt Mary, whose son David torments him. A heavy metal fan, Brodie forms a band called DEATHGASM with his friends Zakk, Dion, and Giles. When the bandmates break into a local house, they discover that one of their idols, reclusive musician Rikki Daggers, lives there. Daggers gives the band magical sheet music, which a cult later murders him to find. Skeptical of the sheet music’s power, the band plays it, only to summon a demon. With the help of his crush, Medina, and his bandmates, Brodie must find a way to defeat the demon. DEATHGASM is a 2015 New Zealand horror comedy film written and directed by Jason Lei Howden. It stars Milo Cawthorne and James Blake as a pair of misfit heavy metal fans who unintentionally summon a demon. It premiered on 14 March 2015 at South by Southwest. The film is inspired by writer-director Howden’s teen years, in which he was a social outcast and fan of heavy metal music. (thanks Wiki)
