There are films that come along that get so much buzz from the underground that you just have to watch especially if they get coverage from your favorite metal music magazine. That was definitely the case for today’s film which combines heavy metal and horror in 2015’s Deathgasm. For Brodie (Milo Cawthorne), life has been a little tough especially since he has to move in with his over christian Uncle and his obnoxious family. Life in the new town isn’t any easier considering he is one of few metalheads in the town until he meets Zakk (James Blake), a fellow metalhead with bigger balls than him. That will all be put to the test though while they found a music sheet that just happens to summon a demon by the name of the Blind One. Now they’ll have to fight off all the demons before it’s too late. The film also stars Kimberley Crossman (Strangers In A Strange Land) as Medina, Sam Berkley (Jake) as Dion, Daniel Cresswell (3 Mile Limit) as Giles, Delaney Tabron (Spartacus: War Of The Damned) as Shanna, Stephen Ure (The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug) as Rikki Daggers, Kate Elliott (30 Days Of Night) as Abigail, and the film was written and directed by Jason Lei Howden (The Avengers).
The film definitely is a perfect marriage of heavy metal and blood splattering horror that it’s absolutely amazing. The film has an absolute amazing soundtrack filled with some metal bands that even I need to be aware of like Skull Fist, Elm Street, Razorwyre, and so many more. The film of course features plenty of blood splatter to please any horror or gore fan. In fact, the gore in the film kind of reminds me of an early Peter Jackson film in Dead Alive. There are some definite lessons to be learned here from the film like do not mess with metal cause it’s awesome. Do not mess with anything that could possibly release demons cause they’ll mess up your day. Even hot chicks can be turned on to metal if done right and death to all false metal. There wasn’t too much about this film that I didn’t enjoy because as I said before it contains everything I love in one film. It has some boob shots in the film especially when Broadie is having his dream sequence about Medina or when Shanna is ready to sacrifice herself to the demon. One of my favorite scenes involves the duo having to fight there way out of a situation by using dildos and anal-beads. That in my opinion was a very funny sequence and certainly a way to be different. Another scene that I like is when Broadie and Zakk meet for the first time in a record store and they are comparing records. In fun, Broadie pulls out a Look What The Cat Dragged In Poison record. You have to be a metal head to understand the joke in that. This was definitely my favorite movie so far this year and you can check it out on Netflix. I am going to give the film an A- for a final grade.
