Bloody Disgusting Presents is alive and this time we’re teaming with Doppelgänger Releasing on the black metal comedy Heavy Trip, which is now on all VOD platforms (links here)! We’re really proud of this Finnish comedy that’s in the vein of Airheads – if the band were a young Dethklok from “Metalocalypse”. It’s about a small-town Finnish heavy metal band that blasts its way out of the quiet countryside for a big debut gig in Norway. Metal and horror fans are going to find it hysterical. I promise!
Here is a taste of the rave reviews:
Birth.Movies.Death’s Marisa Mirabal gave the horns of approval, “Heavy Trip solidifies its place among other beloved metal genre films by summoning a dark comedy that even those who aren’t familiar with Pantera, Children of Bodom, or Uruguayan grindcore can throw their horns up and enjoy.”
“Wail loud, scream proud and support this kooky exploratory import that’s worth one hell of a night with rocksteady friends, horns in the air, until the final credits roll,” added Slashfilm’s Matt Donato.
“Part let’s-get-it-together band saga and part road movie, the story arc is awfully familiar, but that doesn’t stop it being a rollicking romp,” included The Hollywood Reporter.
Daily Dead‘s Heather Wixson writes, “Heavy Metal plays out like a mix of Airheads meets Little Miss Sunshine and it just left me with a big, goofy grin once it was over,” while Morbidly Beautiful calls it “pure cinematic joy.”
The Daily Grindhouse declared it “the best rock and roll film in at least a decade.”
We’re excited to see what Bloody Disgusting readers think!
