Screening with FIRST BITE + MELVIN & THE MICROPHONE + AT THE EDGE OF THE NIGHT
So good and beloved at last years festival, we simply had to have it back in a new Director's Cut!
DEATH TO METAL (Special Preview)
Dir: Tim Connery. Starring: Alex Stein, Grace Melon, Andrew Jessop. USA (2019) 80mins
Kill 'Em All turns from album title to mission statement in this riotous midnight-movie mosh-call that hits harder than the Vulgar Display of Power cover art and where the only thing higher than its body count, is its heart and charm. Get ready to Ride The Frightening.
Dumped by his girlfriend and fired from his band, down-on-his-luck metal frontman Zane doesn't think his day can get any worse; little does he know that a down-on-his-fucks hate-preacher has also been fired, and - following a freak chemical accident - transformed into a mutated killing machine
hellheavenbent on some Old Testament justice. With both of them heading to a hometown metal festival for their own brand of release, will heads bang or roll? With lashings of Troma, and made by-metal-fans for-metal fans, you won't be able to wipe the smiles off your (hammer smashed) faces.
Director Tim Connery will also be joining us to present an exclusive Death To Metal Drinking Game... so prepare your livers accordingly.
