Austin, are you ready to rock? New mock-slasher heavy metal comedy horror Deathgasm premiered at the famous Arts Festival SXSW last night to killer reviews.

If you haven't already, check out the trailer below:

Directed by Jason Lei Howden, better known for The Hobbit, amongst others, the trailer looks like what would happen if you mixed Detroit Rock City with Shaun of The Dead, which is no bad thing!

As stories go it's pretty standard: Boy moves to new town, finds friends, forms a band. But with a load of gore and what seems like a great soundtrack thrown in, what's not to like?!

Set for full release in the film's native New Zealand in June, Deathgasm could be the low-budget hit film of the summer!


Will you be rocking out to Deathgasm this summer?
