Lords of Chaos tells the story of the rise and fall of Norwegian black-metal band Mayhem. It’s a devastating portrait of youth mixed with power in dangerous doses, yet it humanizes its antiheroes in unexpected ways, in part due to memorable performances from Rory Culkin, Emory Cohen, and Jack Kilmer. The film had its New York premiere at the 11th edition of Scary Movies, the Film Society’s annual celebration of the horror genre. It is now playing in select theaters.
At Scary Movies XI, director Jonas Åkerlund and star Rory Culkin joined programmer Rufus de Rham for a Q&A. Listen/watch below or click here to subscribe and listen on iTunes.
