The Afterparty Massacre starts at a death metal show with the bands Incantation and Soulless playing at Peabody’s Down Under in Cleveland, Ohio. As the show blares on, Scarlet gets attacked and has a flashback to the times that an ex-boyfriend abused her. This transforms her into a killing machine that begins the, well, afterparty massacre.
Basically, you should read that as extended performances by the two bands, some NC-17 arrdvarking that never goes full D’Amato and then a few murders. There’s a good idea in here to mix metal shows and murders — that stairwell one victim runs down makes me feel real anxiety, remembering the days of lugging an Orange OBC810 cabinet up the steep steps and praying that one slip wouldn’t send me backward with a vintage monster of noise following me with death in its amplified eyes — but it just doesn’t live up to the great poster.
There is a suspension scene and a death by dildo, so it has that going for it.
But dude, how do you make a horror metal movie in Cleveland and not have Midnight show up?
