Lords Of Chaos, an over-the top coming of age horror/drama, weaving together rock’n’roll, youth, love, and death through a damned dark vision, comes from Swedish director Jonas Åkerlund (Small Apartments).

Oslo, 1987: Seventeen-year-old Euronymous (Rory Culkin, Scream 4) is determined to escape his idyllic Scandinavian hometown and create “true Norwegian black metal” with his band, MAYHEM. He’s joined by equally fanatical youths – Dead (Jack Kilmer, The Stanford Prison Experiement) and Varg (Emory Cohen, Brooklyn). Believing that they’re on the cusp of a musical revolution, the group gets even darker, driven by the black metal dogma to spread evil.

They begin burning down churches throughout the countryside and stealing tombstones for their record store. But when the press catches up with them and Euronymous takes more credit than he’s earned for the group’s violent acts, Varg, fresh out of jail, arranges a dark encounter to settle the score and ultimately determine who the darkest black metal musician is…

Inspired by a true story, Lords Of Chaos made its debut at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival before going on to impress audiences at Fantastic Fest, Beyond Fest, Fantasia Festival, and a slew of other fests…

The Blu-ray/DVD combo contains the unrated version of the film (118 min) and bonus features (11 directors teasers and trailers). The single DVD includes the rated version (116 min) and no bonus features.
