About the Film:

Learn about hamsters with the Black Death Metal band "Bloodfïstre." This dynamic two man team of Ülric Hjammerthrjob and Ümlaüt Ødinsblüt will blast you away with searing skull-crushing METAL!!! Only this time they hope you'll learn a little about the desert's wily rodent friend, the noble hamster. Then you will perish beneath the unholy assault of soul-destroying METAL!!! You may be driven completely insane, but you will have learned so much about a pet you can enjoy for about 2 years. Plus, METAL!!


Film Critic Randy Myers Says:

Think you’re getting squirrely at home? Then meet the Black Death Metal band “Bloodfistre.”   They’re destined to get you headbangin’ and laughing while warbling about the importance of hamsters. The spirit of “This is Spinal Tap!” lives on!
