365 Days of Horror, Day 11: Death Metal [short] [2016]

0

I can safely say I’ve seen and/or heard every type of human be slaughtered in this naughtily gruesome comedy short.

More enjoyable to me than the mildly similar Deathgasm, Chris McInroy‘s SFX-laden Death Metal is a devilish treat for gorehounds. An adult slacker and musician is gifted an impressive guitar (literally fashioned from an axe), a cursed-object heirloom that promises its wielder infinite death-metalling power.

Unfortunately, our protagonist is too excited to stick around to hear the 3 simple rules [don’t play in daylight, don’t use it for money, don’t play it like you’re wanking], and bolts down to the park to start some mid-afternoon busking. No sooner does he do said penis-strumming move, than the axe flies out of his hands and literally shreds everything in sight in a gloriously gruesome never-ending POV shot.

Memorable, and not just for metalheads. But the music’s not half-bad, either.

Score: 🎃🎃🎃🎃
