Heavy Metal Movies (That Aren’t Documentaries)


trick-or-treat-08Like most people in the world, I too am also a big fan of movies.  A movie buff per sè.  Also being a metal head I like to keep my ear to the ground for any movie themed around my favorite style of music, and surprising enough, there are quite a lot of them.  The downside, the majority of heavy metal themed movies are documentaries.  While they are for the most part very good, documentaries aren’t my usual go to genre when I want to pop a flick on.  Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the occasional documentary (really, if you haven’t seen Heavy Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey yet, make that first order of business), but works of fiction resonate with me more.  So in my many years of watching many films (with a particular taste for dumb as fuck and campy as hell slasher/horror flicks) I’ve built up a decent library, and surprisingly there are quite a few movies with heavy metal themes.

Here are some really great flicks to check out which all revolve around heavy metal in some way.  To not just become yet another replicated list on the internet I’m leaving off some of the most obvious choices since I would imagine that you readers have already seen them.  So if you haven’t yet seen the titular Heavy Metal, Wayne’s World, This is Spinal Tap, Hesher, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Airheads, The Pick of Destiny, Rock Star, and Detroit Rock City, all of those should be very high on your viewing list.  Here are some of the more ‘underground’ films you may have looked over…. Hope you like shitty slasher flicks (protip: many featured here can be found in full on Youtube 😉 )  If you know of any movies that are themed on heavy metal not featured in this list give them a shout out in the comments.  Enjoy!  Peace Love and Metal!!!
