A musical comedy covering three decades in the life of Sage Negadeth, an encyclopedic headbanging hero determined to form the heaviest band of his scene. Everything seems to work out as he forms a thrash band with his best friend and two Nigerian exchange students. When a school counselor threatens institutionalization, the Nigerians are deported and he's still stuck working at a gas station, Sage must choose between making a deal with the Devil or the salvation offered by a mysterious Christian girl. Packed with original Metal music and headbanging humor that may offend just about anyone, 'Metal Messiah' is ultra low budget and yet plenty of eye candy and laughs ensure a fast paced, super fun ride.Written by
If you are a fan of metal, this movie will instantly be in your top ten favorite films, probably at the top. If your brother, daughter, mom or dog likes metal, and you don't, you will still love this movie because its got a lot of 'its funny cause its true' value.That being said Born Again Sage is hilarious on its own whatever music you might like, but it is about a heavy metal dude, so if there is one in your life or you're one yourself, it'll hit close to home and make you laugh your ass off even more.
The production value of the movie is impressive, especially considering the shoe string budget. At times I forgot that i was watching a movie made in my home town by people I've met and thought i was watching something made in a Hollywood film studio. The acting is good too, at times cheesy, but in a good way that lends itself to the films cult classic appeal. Besides, its a comedy not Shakespeare! I really hope that Born Again Sage gets out into the world and plays in more theaters. Its one of my favorite movies and it would be a CRIME if the world didn't get to bask in its metally goodness.
On a side note, Nick Wells the writer/director/lead is a pretty damn cool guy. He was in attendance at the theater and joined me and my friends at the bar across the street where we expanded the metal language lexicon (if you've seen the movie you'll understand.) Then he took us to his house and showed us where some scenes were shot (hell was in his front yard) and gave us autographed fliers for the film.
SAGE NEGADETH FOR PRESIDENT!
