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 »

Zakk: Three AM Pacific or Eastern time? Do demons recognize daylight savings?

A Delightful Surprise For Both Metalheads & Horror Enthusiasts.
26 May 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Jason Lei Howden's feature film debut is a gleefully written & confidently directed splatter comedy that wickedly blends the elements of heavy metal insanity, gore-friendly horror & slapstick humour into one crazy, hilarious & delightfully deranged flick that amuses, amazes & thrills in equal doses.

The story of Deathgasm takes place in a small Kiwi town and follows a pair of misfits who are also fans of heavy metal music. Things are set in motion when the two come across some old sheets of music and after playing it, unintentionally summon an ancient demon, thus endangering the lives of all.

Written & directed by Jason Lei Howden, Deathgasm brims with heavy metal motifs from beginning to end and also parodies many classics over the course of its runtime. The plot moves at a frenetic pace, the dialogues are sharp & at times inventive, the music stays true to its roots, and the gags it has in store keep surfacing at regular intervals.

The entire cast chips in with fine performances, with actors who play Brodie & Zakk impressing the most plus their chemistry is spot-on too. The frenzy camera-work infuses an unbridled energy of its own into the premise, the morbid humour is brilliantly timed, manic tone is consistently maintained, and it goes absolutely bonkers in the final act, which isn't a complaint by the way.

On an overall scale, Deathgasm is as uproarious, wild & demented as the subgenre of rock music it pays its tribute to, is well aware of both its strengths & limitations and prefers to enjoy & revel in its madness. Highly refreshing, ridiculously funny & unabashedly raunchy, this blood-splattered metal horror is an unexpected delight for both metalheads & genre enthusiasts. Definitely worth a shot.
