Jonas Åkerlund | 2018 | UK/Sweden | Cert 18 | 117 mins
Oslo, 1987. 17-year-old Euronymous is determined to escape his traditional upbringing and becomes fixated on creating ‘true Norwegian black metal’ with his band Mayhem. He mounts shocking publicity stunts to put the band’s name on the map, but the lines between show and reality start to blur. Arson, violence and a vicious murder shock the nation that is under siege by these Lords of Chaos.
A note from the distributor: To uphold the authenticity of LORDS OF CHAOS and the actual events that transpired, this film contains a sequence of flashing lights and strobing effects in a concert scene which might affect customers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
Featuring Rory Culkin, Emory Cohen, Sky Ferreira

“LORDS OF CHAOS provokes both awe and repulsion, but not necessarily admiration for a musical form and subculture unwaveringly devoted to literalism, no matter how extreme.” – The Hollywood Reporter
“Euronymous shaped the Norwegian Black Metal scene. You’d think that’d make him cool, but Åkerlund wisely doesn’t buy it.” – Variety
LORDS OF CHAOS is rated 18. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
