«Deathgasm» is without a doubt one of the films that we have been hearing a lot of good things from its run on the festivals. Coming from New Zeland, the film tells the story of two metalheads that end up fighting demonic forces of evil (That they actually unleashed, but let’s not dwell on details) ina battle filled with guts, blood and heavy metal…. SOLD!
Just in case this film is news to you, here is the trailer and the new image that was sent to us, so you can put this flick on you list.
From the press release:
«The hilarious, action-filled, bloodsoaked ode to heavy metal horror that’s blown away festival audiences worldwide hits U.S. cinemas on October 2, 2015 from Dark Sky Films!
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.
Jason Lei Howden’s beloved horror-comedy has struck an epic chord around the world, playing to sold-out film festival audiences and taking home numerous awards for its irreverent, loving take on heavy metal horror culture. Mark your calendars for its eagerly-awaited U.S. release!»
I don’t know about you, but I can see some influences from «The Evil Dead» (then again, what doesn’t have it these days?) with a pinch of Peter Jackson’s «Braindead» … Needless to say… I really want to see this film!
What do you guys think?
