Storyline

Metalhead Brodie is sent to live with his Christian aunt and uncle and meat-head cousin after his drug addicted mother is sent away. Brodie seems unable to fit in, until he meets the mysterious Zakk at a record store. Joined by their love of metal, the two form the metal band Deathgasm, along with fellow outcasts Dion and Giles. However, when Brodie and Zakk break into the house of metal star Rikki Daggers they find mysterious sheet music known as The Black Hymn. Deathgasm plays the Black Hymn, which unleashes a demon known as Aeloth who possesses the town's citizens. Now it's up to Deathgasm and popular girl Medina to fight demons, prevent the apocalypse, and save the day.

Trivia

When Brodie and Medina are eating ice cream in the park, her socks change length.

Cant say _I didn't like it, but..
6 October 2015 | by umjetnik_david-1See all my reviews

It started great, nice little introduction into characters and their persona. Comedy felt great for the atmosphere and i was drawn into it. It's all going perfect and i cant believe it, then comes the love scene, this is OK, but it was too typical teen movie problem but i can get over it. After about 45mins comedy starts feeling childish and dumb, d**ks, s**t and dil**s. It slowly loses it's comedy charm it had at the beginning after 10 jokes that feel the same. There is a hand scene (I wont spoil it) that feels like it was undone but I feel Evil Dead fans will love the reference. Also the ending was too fast and it made no sense. I love that some characters die just like that, but after an hour and a half of not showing them I can't feel sympathy for them. All in all good movie, I liked it, I know people here say "so-so movie" and give it 7/10. I thought it was OK metal fun and I rate it 6/10
