Director Jason Lei Howden | 2015 | 86 minutes | Horror Comedy | English
Official Selection – SXSW 2015
In this hilarious and outrageous blood-soaked adventure, the members of a heavy metal band inadvertently open the gates to hell when they play a forbidden piece of sheet music.
The producers of Housebound and Starry Eyes bring you the most Metal action horror film of all time — Deathgasm! 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! It’s up to Brodie, Zakk and their group of friends to stop a force of pure evil from devouring all of mankind.
Produced in association with the New Zealand Film Commission and MPI Media Group, the hilarious and outrageous Deathgasm features an amazing original soundtrack of fist-banging metal and practical effects by Main Reactor (Evil Dead remake) to satisfy metalheads and splatter fans alike. Deathgasm will gush bodily fluids, rain limbs and tickle your funny bone, before tearing it out and giving you a stiff beating with it.
