Dark Sky Films has announced that Jason Lei Howden’s DEATHGASM is hitting Blu-ray, DVD and digital download January 5, 2016 after knocking out fest audiences and winning rave reviews (including ours). The synopsis: “Metal-thrashing Brodie [Milo Cawthorne] is an outcast in a sea of jocks and cheerleaders in a suburban wasteland until he meets a kindred spirit in fellow metalhead Zakk [James Blake]. After starting their own band, Brodie and Zakk’s come upon 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, which threatens to tear apart existence itself. The boys’ classmates and family become inhabited by demonic forces, tearing out their own eyes and turning into psychotic murderers…and that’s 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.”
The movie features an original soundtrack of metal mania by the likes of Axeslasher, Beast Wars, Bulletbelt, Skull Fist, Nunslaughter and The Wretched End. Special features on the discs, if any, have yet to be announced.
