Full Trailer for Norwegian Metal Film 'Lords of Chaos' with Rory Culkin
"Everyone around you are disgusting little insects." Gunpowder & Sky has debuted the killer full-length, official trailer for the indie horror drama Lord of Chaos, which originally premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last year in the Midnight section (as a late addition to the fest). The indie film is based on "truth and lies", as the marketing indicates, telling the (mostly true) story of an attempt to launch Norwegian Black Metal, following its most notorious practitioners at the time. The plot is actually about a teenager's quest to spread Norwegian Black Metal in Oslo, Norway in the early 1990s, which results in a very violent outcome. Rory Culkin stars, with Emory Cohen, Sky Ferreira, Jack Kilmer, and Valter Skarsgård. The first teasers for this didn't show much, but this trailer gives us plenty of crazy footage to chew on. And this looks totally gnarly, with some crazy violent, intense moments hinted at in this full trailer. Don't ignore this one.
Here's the full-length trailer (+ early poster) for Jonas Åkerlund's Lord of Chaos, direct from YouTube:
A teenager's quest to launch Norwegian Black Metal in Oslo in the 1980s results in a very violent outcome.

Lord of Chaos is directed by Swedish filmmaker Jonas Åkerlund, a veteran music video director and director of the films Spun, Horsemen, Small Apartments, and Rammstein: Paris previously. The screenplay is written by Dennis Magnusson and Jonas Åkerlund; inspired by the "Lords of Chaos" book written by Michael Moynihan and Didrik Søderlind.
