The folks at Wild Eye Releasing have an early Christmas present for us this year with Death to metal† Watch the determined Priest Mutant make it his mission to rid the world of metalheads! No one will be left to comment, “No fake metals!” Someone do something!
The official synopsis reads: “Time to turn the gore knob to 11. Tim Connery’s rocking new horror Death to metal comes at Christmas. After a freak accident, a deranged priest turns into a mutated killing machine on a mission to wipe out the wicked fans of heavy metal music. Dan Flannery, recognized for his role as Tony ‘Tricky’ Trichter on TVs Empirebelongs to the ensemble cast.”
A cursory glance at my previous articles will let you know that when Wild Eye Releasing is speaking, I’m listening. If you like your gore with a bloody splash and a giggle (Giggelgore, my new official genre category. Feel free to add it to your own language.), then you’ve found an exemplary resource. After you find out who wins the battle between mutant priest and headbangers, they’ve got some naughty and fun holiday classics in their catalog that are not to be missed.
Caesar & Otto’s Deadly Christmas has Caesar and his half-brother Otto take on duties as Santa Claus and his elf. However, the bodies begin to pile up when a fellow shopkeeper Santa (CKY’s Deron Miller) develops a vendetta against them, and he soon turns Caesar’s list of dinner guests into a list of Christmas-inspired victims! The film features cult film icons Linnea Quigley (The Return of the Living Dead† Appetite for Sin† Silent night, deadly night), Brinke Stevens (Slaves of Beyond Infinity† The Slumber Party Massacre† Under the old dark house), Lloyd Kaufman (Wombat & Goose Present Outta the Can† dead race† A little more meat II), Joe Estevez (The Rollerblade Seven† Soultaker, Return of the Roller Blade Seven), Felisa Rose (Happy slashers† the demented† Massacre Academy) and Robert Zdar. See for yourself!
When you order the DVD, it comes with three commentary tracks (director, cast/crew, actors), the Behind the Scenes featurette, alternate scenes, plus the short films piggyzilla† Otto’s first joband The perfect candidate†
And if you need even more Santa Clauses to ring in the New Year, may I introduce you? Secret Santa† The film shows a group of eccentric college students struggling to get through their hectic exams, decide to throw a holiday party and add a secret Santa swap for fun. Not knowing there is a killer in town, they have made a special list and each of them has a special present waiting for them. A throwback to classic Christmas horror movies from the 70s and 80s. “Let’s get this Secret Santa party started!”
Okay, rockers! Put it on! Louder! Wild Eye Releasing unleashes Death to metal Dec 7 on VOD.
