Ant Timpson, Auckland, 22 July 2015: It all started with a synopsis and a poster submitted to a film competition. From 500 submissions, one winner emerged victorious. The filmmaker’s name was Jason Lei Howden and his winning idea was lovingly titled : DEATHGASM
DEATHGASM is now a full length feature that has been tearing it up at festivals the world over ever since it’s successful World Premiere at SXSW.
Recently it was voted 3rd most favourite film by audiences at the Sydney Film Festival and all of us who worked on the film couldn’t be prouder of how audiences have embraced the film everywhere its played. From the US to Brazil to Korea to Montreal – audiences have cheered and applauded all of its sweet-natured carnage.
But now the time has come for DEATHGASM to finally screen on its home turf. So get your mates, head to the pub for a round or three and then come along to see DEATHGASM unleash all it’s gooey goodness across New Zealand’s best cinema screens.

Growing up can be hell, especially for a teenage metal fan in conservative, small-town New Zealand. Brodie (Milo Hawthorne) is shipped off to live with his Christian aunt and uncle in the middle of nowhere. They aren’t impressed with his love for the likes of Trivium and Cannibal Corpse. Things look up when he meets a like mind in bad boy Zakk (James Blake) and together they form a heavy metal band with a couple of D&D geeks. All hell, literally, breaks loose when the pair get their hands on an unrecorded song from their death metal idol. It soon becomes apparent why the song was never recorded, as everyone within earshot of their garage jam session is turned into demonic zombies. So it’s up to our head-banging heroes to, reluctantly, save the world from a satanic apocalypse. (NZIFF)
