“The World’s Loudest Silent Musical Sci-Fi Epic”

If someone walked into a studio with a script co-written by Henry Rollins (who is also plays a satanic minister) and features Iggy Pop was some kind of grievous angel as well as cameos from Joh Homme, Nina Hagen, Slash, Grace Jones, Lemmy and more, they wouldn’t get pass the guard house let alone reception. Yet some kind of movie miracle has happened. Behold Gutterdämmerung.

OZY explains:

The plot goes a little something like this. In order to purify the world, God plucks from it the evil satanic Grail (i.e., the electric guitar). In an instant, the Earth is wiped clean of all impure urges, as sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll are not only forbidden, they’re not even an issue anymore now that the source of all sin has been removed from the picture. Meanwhile, a rebellious angel named Vicious (Iggy Pop) looks down on how painfully boring the world has become and takes it upon himself to make this creepy, dull little blue planet a lively action spot again. So he steals the satanic Grail from God and returns it to Earth. Needless to say, all hell breaks loose.

What makes things even more interesting is that the movie is going on tour, complete with a live house band and special effects for every screening. This I gotta see.
