The hilarious, action-filled, bloodsoaked ode to heavy metal horror that’s blown away festival audiences worldwide hits U.S. cinemas and VOD on October 2, 2015 from Dark Sky Films!
High School is Hell! Metal-thrashing Brodie is an outcast in a sea of jocks and cheerleaders until he meets a kindred spirit in fellow metalhead Zakk. After starting their own band, Brodie and Zakk’s resentment of the suburban wasteland leads them to a mysterious piece of sheet music said to grant Ultimate Power to whoever plays it. But the music also summons an ancient evil entity known as Aeloth The Blind One, who threatens to tear apart existence itself. Their classmates and family become inhabited by demonic forces, tearing out their own eyes and turning into psychotic murderers… and this is only the beginning!
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, and assign your critics today!
