Heavy Trip

Year 2018
Runtime 90 mins
Language Finnish/Norwegian (English subtitles)

In this hilarious and heartfelt heavy metal comedy from Finland, Turo (Johannes Holopainen) is stuck in a small Finnish village, where the best thing in his life is being the lead vocalist for the amateur metal band Impaled Rektum. The only problem? He and his bandmates have practiced for 12 years without playing a single gig. 

So when the guys get a surprise visitor from Norway—the promoter for a huge heavy metal music festival—they need to stop making excuses, get over the stage fright, and make a potentially life-altering decision. Along the way, they'll steal a van, a corpse, and even a new drummer, in order to make their metal dreams a head-bangin' reality.
