  • Heavy Trip

  • Original Title:
  • Hevi reissu
  • Screening Time:
  • Year:
  • 2018

  • Turo is stuck in a small village in Northern Finland. The only glimpses of light in his life are provided by his amateur metal band, Impaled Rektum. He and his friends have played for 12 years without having a single gig. The guys get a surprise visitor from Norway: the head of Northern Damnation, a huge metal festival. They decide that it’s now or never. After a miserable warm-up gig Impaled Rektum breaks up just to get together again. They steal a van, a corpse and a coffin from the local cemetery, a new drummer from the local mental hospital and flee to Norway. As they are escaping Finnish police, they have to face the Norwegian Army and its notorious “Delta troppen” in order to get to play their first real gig.

    Director’s Statement: We think that guys like the band in Heavy Trip deserve their story to be told. Guys, who in spite of probably never getting rich or famous (and probably never getting many girls), play THIS music. Just for the love of it. With this film, we wanted to make the audience laugh. And by this we mean to really laugh. Not just have a smirk for some intelligent insightful notion about something “meaningful”. But to laugh your ass off.
