New Zealand 2015, 90 minutes
Dir. Jason Lei Howden
Rating: [R16] Graphic violence, sexual references & offensive language
Genres: Horror, Comedy / Grunge & Metal, Splatter


“an affectionate skewering of coming-of-age tropes, metal culture and New Zealand mundanity.”~Anton Bitel

Aroview: Bloody-minded Kiwi horror-comedy has two teenage metal fans stirring up trouble in small-town New Zealand when they accidentally summon an ancient evil entity known as The Blind One while trying to escape their mundane lives.

Inaugural winner of the NZ "Make My Horror Movie" competition, this exudes both character and confidence about headbanger and schlock culture, with excellent performances from the three leads, though it's not so much recommended for those partial to the maxim that "less is more".
