Hypnotic Heavy Metal Horror Comedy “HEADBANGER!” Crowdfunding Until August 5

Thursday, July 13, 2023 | Crowdfunding, News

Set against the backdrop of the Satanic Panic hysteria and anti-Heavy Metal rage of the 1980s, HEADBANGER! is about a young metalhead named Mark Looger who hypnotizes his overbearing mother to get her off his back about his music, clothes, and length of his hair. But ironically, the spell he casts also makes her susceptible to the terrifying suggestions of the Heavy Metal music he loves. Mark’s mother begins murdering all of his friends in gruesomely over-the-top ways that only Heavy Metal can inspire. Mark has unwittingly created a monster, and if she is not stopped, it might just mean the end of Heavy Metal forever. This Heavy Metal-infused retelling of the Frankenstein myth is an atomic explosion of over-the-top comedy, glorious gore, and face-melting power chords cranked up to 666!

Directed by Audie Harrison (Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo!), HEADBANGER! is currently fundraising for its production budget on Indiegogo, with a campaign set to end on August 5, 2023. Contribute to HEADBANGER! here, and receive a variety of special prizes in return for your generosity.
