Metalhead

Metalhead

Directed by Ragnar Bragason

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, clutching her dead brother's guitar as she howls anthems of rage to a barn full of cows. Seemingly trapped in a haunted landscape, Hera painfully comes to terms with her family's loss and the sound of her own true voice.

An intense drama of loss, faith, redemption, Megadeth and Judas Priest.

Cast: Thora Bjorg Helga, Halldora Geirhardsdottir, Sevinn Olafur Gunnarsson

Definitely not horror but me and my mans had sex midway through and then continued watching it because we were genuinely invested in the plot!

Solid movie, though pretty anything set in Iceland gets a boost because its such an interesting and beautiful place. I'd give it 4.5 if that were an option. Really enjoyed it, and I am definitely not a metalhead.

It is a good story of how music can help heal, some music is just better at it then others! Horns Up!
