Movie Info

In this offbeat comedy from Finland, Turo is stuck in a small village where the best thing in his life is being the lead vocalist for the amateur metal band Impaled Rektum. The only problem? He and his bandmates have practiced for 12 years without playing a single gig. The guys get a surprise visitor from Norway--the promoter for a huge heavy metal music festival--and decide it's now or never. They steal a van, a corpse, and even a new drummer in order to make their dreams a reality.

Critic Reviews for Heavy Trip (Hevi reissu)

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (5)

A cult hit waiting in the wings. Come for the brutal music, stay for the charming DIY optimism.

October 5, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Remains knowingly true to its quirky quartet and milieu even as the plotting runs off the rails a tad in the third act.

October 4, 2018 | Full Review…

While the film's attempts at slapstick can be painful-in a cringing way, not in a brutal way-Heavy Trip does succeed in creating perhaps the most charming ensemble of morbid dorks since What We Do In The Shadows.

Top Critic

Achieves the status of bonafide crowd-pleaser, for a crowd that isn't normally acknowledged with such detail and warmth.

August 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Part let's-get-it-together band saga and part road movie, the story arc is awfully familiar, but that doesn't stop it being a rollicking romp.

May 24, 2018 | Full Review…

Heavy Trip will lure you with great original songs and hilarious gags, but you will stay because of the lovable characters and the sweet story about rebellion and following your dreams.
