Deathgasm(Review)[Terrifying Theatrical Tuesday]
Deathgasm is the result of if you took Evil Dead combined with Dead Alive, and made them more metal. I went into with no expectations and now it is one of my top horror films. The premise is about two guys who start a death metal band and find some ancient texts that they decide to translate into a song. Of course, this ends up summoning demons, and they must find a way to send them back.
There are definitely similarities to Evil Dead with the fact that demons are summoned via the ancient text, and the lead is a nerdy kid who couldn't fight his way out of a paper bag. But by the end of the movie, he transforms into a total badass and he even gets the girl. This movie is more or less a love letter to metal music ,just with demons involved.
That being said, I would not watch this movie while eating or you may want to have a barf bag if blood makes you queasy, because holy crap, there are ridiculous amounts of blood that flow throughout. There is a reason this is called Deathgasm, and it definitely lives up to that name. There are some scenes that are just absolutely disgusting. It does have its humorous aspects, for example there is a scenes that involves sex toys being used to kill some of the demons. All while a metal track is playing in the background. It will be more apt to make you laugh or barf, or maybe both at the same time.
I cant tell you just how enjoyable this movie was, definitely something I rewatched many times. It is so unassuming at first, but definitely a treasure to horror and metal fans alike. Definitely recommend watching at least once, and its available on both Amazon Prime and Shudder. And if already seen it, feel free to weigh in with your thoughts below!!
