One of the most insanely fun movies to come out this year is Jason Howden’s ‘Deathgasm’ which recently hit VOD. To whet your appetite for this blood drenched love letter to rock ‘n’ roll, we had a chat with director Jason Howden about his new horror disasterpiece, ‘Deathgasm’!!!
Then when the ‘Make My Horror’ competition came around, I revisited the splatter idea, but decided to put Metalhead characters in, which changed everything. The cool thing was, Tim Wells ended up doing gore FX for the movie.
We used 80 litres of blood, which is a good amount of life-juice on camera. But Peter Jackson’s splatter masterpiece Braindead (Dead Alive) used 300 litres, so I’m still aiming to top that high-score. Maybe then he will start making splatter-comedies again! We had a great blood and gore team. Tim Wells and Storm Mccracken went all out to try and get as much grue on-screen, and they did an awesome job.
We really need people to go out there and support Deathgasm to make it happen. We need people to go out there and watch it in cinemas and VOD; buy some shirts or DVDs, just to show the people with money that there is a demand for more Heavy Metal horror. Otherwise, you are dooming us all to a world of arty wankfests and Oscar bait. Viva indie horror!
