Anyone up for a real-life black metal horror movie?

If you’re familiar with Norwegian black metal, I need not go any further because you know how this story ends. If you’re in the, um, dark, I won’t spoil anything for you here other than to say that churches get burned down and people–real people–die. This ain’t no Bohemian Rhapsody.

I will, however, point you at the official trailer for Lords of Chaos. The role of Euronymous is played by Rory Caulkin, brother of Macauley.

Lord of Chaos opens in theatres February 6. It’ll appear on-demand February 22.
