It’s already very cool when we get new horror movies centered around heavy metal, but it is extra cool when said movie actually features big-name metalhead celebrities.
As reported by Metal Hammer, Hairmetal Shotgun Zombie Massacre is a horror film featuring the likes of Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe, Slayer frontman Tom Araya, and Morbid Angel frontman David Vincent; oh, and Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead and Death Stranding fame is also in the film.
The film’s premise revolves around a hair metal band striving to make new music, and at one point during their journey, they come across a cursed book (which looks very much like the Necronomicon from Evil Dead), and when one thing leads to another, the band are stuck fighting off zombies.
From the trailer alone (which you can view below), Hairmetal Shotgun Zombie Massacre looks like an absolute blast.
Not only does there appear to be a perfect use of cheese, but the film also looks to be an awesome love letter to metal and classic horror.
The film is written by Josh Vargas and co-written by Jvstin Whitney, with Vargas also being the director.
Alongside its stacked cast of metalhead celebrities, the film’s original music was created by none other than Pantera singer Phil Anselmo and power metal’s very own Helstar.

In other movie-related news, one of our current favorite movies of 2023 so far is Brandon Cronenberg’s Infinity Pool (starring Mia Goth). This film is absolutely fucked and captivating, and if you have yet to see it, you should (though, do be warned, for it has very graphic content involving violence and sex).
