Peter Jackson meets Bill & Ted in this rowdy New Zealand splatter-comedy about a high school metal band who have to save their asses from Satan. A heavy metal storm of electric guitars, dildo fights, severed limbs, chainsaw duels, and fountains of blood!
High school metalhead Brodie is an outcast in a sea of jocks and cheerleaders, until he meets kindred spirit Zakk and they form their own band – Deathgasm! Circumstances lead them to a mysterious piece of sheet music said to grant Ultimate Power to whoever plays it. But the music also summons an ancient evil entity known as Aeloth The Blind One, who threatens to tear apart existence itself.
Soon, their classmates and family become inhabited by demonic forces, tearing out their own eyes and turning into psychotic murderers…and this is only the beginning! It’s up to Brodie, Zakk and their group of friends to stop a force of pure evil from devouring all of mankind.
Deathgasm not only features an original soundtrack of fist-banging metal, but is guaranteed to gush bodily fluids, rain limbs and tickle your funny bone–before tearing it out and giving you a stiff beating with it.
