October Horror Movie Challenge - Deathgasm (2015)

Synopsis: When his mom gets committed, outcast Brody is sent to live with his fundamentalist aunt and uncle. He soon makes friends with a few outcasts and another metalhead and forms a band. The pair meet a reclusive musician who gives them some highly sought after occult writings. The pair unwittingly unleash Hell on Earth with them and have to fight their way through demonic hordes to make things right.

The Good: This movie has a incredibly high level of bombastic energy and excitement that's contagious. Its a good mix of the New Zealand splatter horror and metal. The movie is littered with D&D references. The action is great. Oh yeah and anal beads are used as a weapon...

The Bad: If you don't like metal, you won't like this movie. Also, if you don't like metal, I pity you. This movie is about as low brow as it gets, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with that!

Final Thoughts: Seriously, if you're a metalhead go and watch this movie now. You won't regret it. Make sure to watch the post credits scene.

In Your Game: This movie has Army of Darkness and Cinematic Unisystem written all over it. I mean Zakk does a freaking chainsaw ballet move! I thought about statting out the eyeless demons or Aeon the Blind Lord, but honestly they're generic enough demons you could just take something from the books.
