DeathgasmA pair of misfit heavy metal fans who unintentionally summon a demon. After his mother is institutionalized, misfit Brodie is sent to live with his fundamentalist Christian Uncle Albert and Aunt Mary, whose son David torments him. A heavy metal fan, Brodie forms a band called Deathgasm with his friends Zakk, Dion, and Giles. When the bandmates break into a local house, they discover that one of their idols, reclusive musician Rikki Daggers, lives there. Daggers gives the band magical sheet music, which a cult later murders him to find. Skeptical of the sheet music's power, the band plays it, only to summon a demon. With the help of his crush, Medina, and his bandmates, Brodie must find a way to defeat the demon.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "Deathgasm"San Diego ReaderNovember 06, 2015
Howden can be hugely entertaining when he mixes some brains and heart in with the guts and gore, which is about half the time - mostly, the first half.Seattle TimesOctober 22, 2015
An unhinged horror comedy ...RogerEbert.comOctober 02, 2015
The director and his stars commit to the insanity of their project.New York TimesOctober 01, 2015
In between the rampant four-letter words and the occasional partial nudity are likable attempts at humor - some sweet, some saucy.Minneapolis Star TribuneOctober 01, 2015
It won't carry fans of "Shaun of the Dead" or "Army of Darkness" into unexplored territory, but it's energetic enough to slap a stupid grin on your face.AV ClubSeptember 30, 2015
For everyone already inclined to see a heavy-metal-themed New Zealand horror-comedy called Deathgasm, here's some good news: The movie is exactly what it promises to be.Blog de cineJuly 14, 2016
A pretty crazy film that ends up being a failed mix of ideas that never know how to deal with all of its excesses. [Full review in Spanish]TheFrightFile.comJanuary 07, 2016
"Deathgasm" is perhaps too busy for its own good and not always seamlessly plotted but the movie's infectious sensibilities are hard to deny.Daily DeadJanuary 06, 2016
Deathgasm is gloriously low-brow, yet insightful (such a fine line to walk and yet, Jason Lei Howden makes it look easy here), and the comedic strokes throughout the script are absolute gold.Austin ChronicleOctober 08, 2015
It's the rare over-the-top horror show that's also brimming with heart. Even if that heart is being ripped from somebody's chest.PopMattersOctober 07, 2015
Deathgasm drips with classic splatter film goodness. If you're on board, then the little issues won't detract from this darkly fun, unique little film.About.comOctober 02, 2015
With its localized demonic outbreak, Deathgasm plays a bit like Demons or Evil Dead, but with the energetic, lighthearted appeal (and splattery gore) of Dead Alive and the clueless fanboy heroism of Wayne's World or even Beavis and Butthead.
