Metal music and horror films have walked hand in hand for many a decade but it’s been a while since we’ve had a head banging, blood spewing, limb ripping good old fashioned rock and roll horror film but director Joshua Allan Vargas is on a mission to change all that.
It’s called ‘Hairmetal Shotgun Zombie Massacre – The Movie’ and here’s where they are heading with things:
“The film is about a hair metal band that, while struggling to find its own identity, decides to record its first full-length album is a creepy cabin located in the middle of a notorious cemetery. Chock full of weed, coke, and booze, the band discovers a secret in the cellar and unwittingly open a gate that allows demons to possess the corpses in the surrounding cemetery. Forced to have to survive the night and with the odds getting slimmer, the band must battle hordes of the demonic undead and hope to get a record deal somewhere in the process.”
Reports indicate that filming has wrapped and a trailer is in the works but for now we’ve got a handful of stills and a short BTS clip that shows them shooting a cameo segment with Randy Blythe (LAMB OF GOD) and David Vincent (MORBID ANGEL).
