We tried to share it here but link failed, this is an awesome trailer / teaser and the article is spot on, much thanks to it’s writer, originally Posted by Derrick Rossignol on October 13, 2015

You would watch a black-and-white silent film about an evil guitar that stars rock icons Slash, Josh Homme, Lemmy Kilmister, Grace Jones, Iggy Pop, Justice, Henry Rollins, Slayer’s Tom Araya, Volbeat, Mark Lanegan, Nina Hagen and Jesse Hughes, right? Of course you would, so it’s a good thing that Gutterdämmerung, potentially the greatest Halloween movie of all time, exists. We wouldn’t just present you with this amazing concept and then leave you hanging, so take a gander at the trailer above.

The film’s official summary paints quite the picture:
“The film is set in a world where God has saved the world from sin by taking from mankind the Devil’s ‘Grail of Sin’…..the Evil Guitar. The Earth has now turned into a puritan world where there is no room for sex, drugs or rock ‘n’ roll.

From up on high in heaven a “punk-angel”, Vicious (portrayed by Iggy Pop), looks upon the world with weary bored eyes. Behind God’s back, Vicious sends the Devil’s guitar back to earth and sin in all its forms returns to mankind.

An evil puritan priest (Henry Rollins) manipulates a naive girl to retrieve the guitar and destroy it. On her quest to find the Devil’s Grail Of Sin, the girl is forced to face the world’s most evil rock and roll bastards. Throughout her journey, she has a rival in the form of a rock chick determined to stop her from destroying the instrument.”

The film, directed by Belgian-Swedish visual artist and music video director Bjorn Tagemose, definitely pushes the boundaries of what a silent film can be… because it isn’t all that silent. Instead of ragtime piano music and screens of text to convey dialogue, words are spoken and as would be expected with the film’s subject matter, the score rocks. We’re anticipating The Pick of Destiny meets The Artist meets Sin City. Yes, those three movies are very different, so we’re counting on Gutterdämmerung to be as fascinating to watch as it is to pronounce.

There are no screening dates announced yet, but tickets for a showing in London go on sale on October 14, and will be available on the film’s website. We’re super surprised that Dave Grohl isn’t involved somehow, but there’s no way this movie won’t at least be interesting.
