Beheadings, demons, saw attacks, and shredding heavy metal, this trailer for the gore fest Deathgasm certainly has my full attention. The fact that the movie is called Deathgasm doesn’t hurt either. Slated to premiere as part of SXSW’s Midnight program next month in Austin, this instantly became a movie I want and need to see.
This looks like crazy, metal-soaked mayhem, and I couldn’t be happier about that. Here’s the synopsis:
New kid in town Brodie and bad-boy Zakk quickly bond over their mutual admiration of heavy metal. But when these two metal thrashing losers unwittingly summon malevolent forces, their dreams of stardom may just have to be put on hold.
This feels like some wingnut, ‘80s cautionary tale about the dangers of heavy metal. Hopefully Deathgasm is as awesome as it looks so someone will distribute it and those of us who won’t be anywhere near SXSW will be able to see it soon.
