Metalhead

Metalhead

Directed by Ragnar Bragason

Fueled by a remarkable breakout performance by actress Thora Bjorg Helga, Director Ragnar Bragason's METALHEAD is an intense drama of loss, faith, redemption, Megadeth and Judas Priest. It begins with a farming accident in the 1980s that sends a young girl, Hera, and her parents into a tail-spin of grief over the death of her heavy metal-obsessed older brother. A decade later and Hera is transformed into a sexy, surly headbanger and DIY musician, dressed in black leather and a Slayer t-shirt, clutching her dead brother's electric guitar as she howls anthems of rage to a barn full of cows. Seemingly trapped in a haunted landscape of slaughterhouses and barren winter fields, making all the wrong choices in her life - including coming on to the local priest and sleeping with her platonic best friend - Hera slowly, painfully comes to terms with her family's loss and the sound of her own true voice.

Like others have said, not much horror, but I'd say worth a watch, I found it enjoyable.

Not really a horror film but the metal theme brings a darkness.

Wow. What a great movie - but iot's not remotely horror. It's a story about the power of grief, metal, family, and acceptance.
