CAST: Torstein Bjorklund, Antti Heikkinen, Ville Hilska DIRECTOR: Juuso Laatio, Jukka Vidgren WEIRD ELEPHANT SERIES

In this offbeat comedy from Finland, Turo is stuck in a small 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. The guys get a surprise visitor from Norway--the promoter for a huge heavy metal music festival--and decide it's now or never. They steal a van, a corpse, and even a new drummer in order to make their dreams a reality.

A cult hit waiting in the wings. Come for the brutal music, stay for the charming DIY optimism.
Simon Abrams,
While the film's attempts at slapstick can be painful-in a cringing way, not in a brutal way-Heavy Trip does succeed in creating perhaps the most charming ensemble of morbid dorks since What We Do In The Shadows.
Katie Rife, AV Club
A genuinely entertaining, heartfelt, laugh out loud film...
