Heavy Trip looks like a fucking riot.
The story of a Finnish death metal band who - after 12 years of composing basement music - sets out on a ludicrous trip to play at the hottest Metal festival in Norway. Along the way, they get into everything from grave robbing, to meeting Vikings, to all-out armed conflict. The film was selected to compete in the "24 Beats Per Second" category at SXSW this year, marking it as the first Finnish comedy to ever premiere at the fest.
Now, there's a trailer for the picture, which looks to be a screaming blast. Take a peek:
BMD's Marisa Mirabal is going to be taking this one on, as she's already emailed me, practically shouting with glee upon seeing the spot. So expect a review pretty quick after its World Premiere on March 10th at SXSW.
