Heavy Trip

Type: New Blu-Ray

In this offbeat road comedy from Finland, Turo is a misfit stuck in a small village where the best thing in his life is being the lead vocalist of an amateur metal band. When Toro and his bandmates Jynkky, Lotvonen and Pasi receive a surprise visit from the promoter of a huge heavy metal music festival in Norway, they decide the time is now or never to chase their dreams. After an awkward warm-up gig, the band — which chooses the name Impaled Rektum — hits the road and goes full metal, stealing a death van, transporting a corpse, kidnapping a new drummer from the mental hospital, and fleeing to Norway, with the authorities in hot pursuit, all in order to play their first gig and make their dreams a reality.
