William Brown (Jonah Ray Rodrigues), a neurotic, self-absorbed musician determined to finish his prog-rock magnum opus, faces a creative roadblock in the form of a noisy and grotesque neighbor named Vlad (Alex Winter). Finally working up the nerve to demand that Vlad keep it down, William inadvertently decapitates him. But, while attempting to cover up one murder, William’s accidental reign of terror causes victims to pile up and become undead corpses who torment and create more bloody detours on his road to prog-rock Valhalla.
Shudder debuts the movie via their streaming platform in the US.
Alex Winter (Bill and Ted movies, The Lost Boys, Freaked) described the movie as a “return to the kind of physical effects-driven genre comedy that’s all too rare these days.”
Described as a “twisted splatter-comedy about a deranged journey of self-discovery full of goopy practical FX, a well-known ensemble cast, and LOTS of blood.”
This is said to be a “hard-rock, horror-comedy romp.”
Destroy All Neighbors premiered on Shudder on January 12, 2024.
