Did You Know?

Trivia

After obtaining the Hexan Sword Record, Zakk discovers that it is just a Rick Astley record. Rick Astley's song "Never gonna give you up" is wildly used to trick people on the internet by leading them to this song under false pretenses. This is called Rickrolling. See more »

Goofs

When first shown in the garage, Dion offers no assistance to translate the Latin name of the song which Brodie later painstakingly has to translate word by word using a dictionary in class. However, much later in Rikki's shack he is swift to correct the pronunciation of the Latin spoken there, so clearly is both fluent, and keen to show off. See more »

Brodie: Y'know, I'm not even sure I'm in the right tuning.

Metal meets Evil Dead 2
2 October 2015 | by alucardvenomSee all my reviews

I've waited for this movie since it was announced. Then I saw the trailer which looked like movie is gonna be gory flick that doesn't take itself too seriously, while metal music plays in background... and movie is exactly that.

"Deathgasm" while not taking itself too seriously, it still hits all the marks of what made other horror-comedies like Evil Dead 2 and Braindead great. It has style, it has life, and enough gore to satisfy even hardcore horror fans. Story follows group of metalhead losers who accidentally play some "devil's music" which in fact is a summoning tune to some Arch Demon, and as rest of the people in town are turning into demons, it's up to our "losers" to save the world.

The Demons resemble Deadites from Evil Dead 2, which this movie clearly pays homage to among other several horror movies (most notable, Braindead). There's also a lot of dark humor and while some scenes do go crazy with gore, it never really gets over-the-top. It's all in good fun.

Screenplay itself pokes fun at metalhead stereotypes, with characters reacting to certain events with lines like "Brutal!" or "Metal!" (little nod to Metalocalypse). Production is rather good, much better then you would expect from this type of movie, and overall it looks lot more expensive then it's budget.

Some minor problems here and there (climax could have been a bit better), but nothing too troubling.

One of the best horror-comedies in a while, and if you love your metal and your horror, check it out.
