Chattanooga Film Festival Review: SADISTIC INTENTIONS

From Alice Cooper’s and Black Sabbath’s occult-inspired lyrics and gory theatrics, to Rob Zombie’s foray into directing his own features, to films like Trick or Treat, The Devil’s Candy, and Deathgasm— heavy metal and the horror genre have always gone hand-in-hand. Both genres are known for (and celebrated) for pushing their material to the limits, often relying on violence and shock value for art. But how far is too far? With the latest heavy metal-horror film pairing, Eric Pennycoff’s SADISTIC INTENTIONS, we have a great time finding out just how far one jaded metal musician will go to achieve levels of creativity and inspiration for his music.
