It's really not Father Kilborn's (Andrew Jessop) day: He's a passionate priest, but his sermons have gotten too angry and really hateful of late, so his superior Father Brennan (Dan Flannery) has no alternative but ask him to take a leave. This gets Father Kilborn mad for sure, and in such a state he falls into a landfill filled with nuclear waste and turns into a homicidal monster (and is now played by Trent Johnson). And as such, filled with his own interpretation of the Christian doctrine, where better to go to kill some sinners than to a heavy metal concert?

It's also not Zane's (Alex Stein) day: Not only does he get unceremoniously dumped by his girlfriend Tracey (Gwen Werner), he's also thrown out of Withered Christ, the band he fronted - and on the evening of the concert that might just be their big break, too, opening for legendary Grandma Incinerator. However, his best friend Mariah (Grace Melon) helps Zane overcome his grief, and even persuades him to go to the Grandma Incinerator concert, even if Tracey's likely to show up and his former band is playing. And it seems to pay off, too, as Withered Christ's new frontman fails to show up and they pretty much beg him to rejoin the band. But while he's on stage, mutated Father Kilborn enters the venue to go on an indiscriminate killing spree ...


Now truth to be told, Death to Metal doesn't score too highly on the originality chart, it's just too reminiscent of (mostly direct-to-video) monster movies of the 1980s and 90s - including its focus on heavy metal music -, but that said, this film is pretty good at what it has set out to do, to tell an entertaining, often comedic story about a monster let loose at a heavy metal concert, as for one the script's tightly structured, and the film flows along at a steady pace, and for two, the central characters are all relatable and come off as more than just cardboard cutouts. Oh, and the music's pretty cool as well. And all of this makes just really good genre entertainment.
