Revenge, murder, bloodshed and retribution. Hot on the heels of Metallica's cinematic outing last week, Slayer have released the trailer for their own One Night Only cinema release, The Repentless Killology...
The Repentless Killogy film was written and directed by BJ McDonnell, who conceived and directed the three brutal music videos - "You Against You," "Repentless," and "Pride in Prejudice"- for Slayer's final studio album Repentless (2015). "When we set out to do these initial three videos," said McDonnell, "our intention was to continue the saga of Slayer and Wyatt at some point down the line. But this is the band's final album and world tour so this story, the three videos and the "Repentless" live concert at The Forum, is a perfect way to wrap up. This is the end of the monsters."
Uncompromising and unmissable, part one of "Slayer: The Repentless Killogy" begins with the powerful short narrative film that brings together the music of Slayer and the grisly story they wanted to tell. Opening with the trilogy of music videos assembled as one chronological storyline, we are introduced to the narrative's main character Wyatt, a former Neo Nazi associated with a gang known as "The Hand Brotherhood," whose signature mark was a bloody handprint left after a murder had taken place.
The Repentless Killogy stars many of the actors who appeared in the original video series:
Jason Trost (Beats of Rage, Hatchet III) as Wyatt,
Danny Trejo (Machete, From Dusk Til Dawn),
Richard Speight, Jr. (Band of Brothers, Supernatural),
Derek Mears (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.),
Jessica Pimentel (Orange Is The New Black),
Tyler Mane (X-Men, Halloween II),
Bill Moseley (The Devil's Rejects, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2),
Caroline Williams (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Sharknado 4),
and Sean Whalen (Twister, The People Under The Stairs).
Part two of The Repentless Killogy features Slayer's entire live set performed at the Los Angeles Forum on August 5, 2017 and was directed by Wayne Isham who has directed videos for artists including Metallica, Foo Fighters, Michael Jackson, Kelly Clarkson, and Britney Spears. Presented in front of one of the most striking stage productions of the band's career, Slayer performs fan-favorite’s including "South of Heaven," "War Ensemble," "Mandatory Suicide," "Dead Skin Mask," "Raining Blood," and "Angel of Death." Following the global theatrical premiere, on November 8 the film will be available digitally and on Blu-ray, and the soundtrack from that concert will be released as both a two-disc vinyl and two CD packages.
