The adult animated science-fantasy anthology Heavy Metal (1981) will be joining our Beyond Genres collection as volume #16. This release comes in O-ring packaging and includes special features.

Based on the fantastical illustrated magazine HEAVY METAL®, producer Ivan Reitman enlists the world’s greatest comic book artists to create the otherworldly tale of a glowing green orb from outer space that spreads destruction throughout the galaxy.

Only when encountered by its one true enemy – to whom it is inexplicably drawn – will goodness prevail throughout the universe.Lavishly drawn, the vignettes of the orb’s dark victories include the character voices of John Candy and Harold Ramis plus a pounding soundtrack by Black Sabbath, Blue Öyster Cult, Cheap Trick, Devo, Donald Fagen, Grand Funk Railroad, Sammy Hagar, Journey, Nazareth, Stevie Nicks, Riggs and Trust.

Highly imaginative and full of surprising special effects, HEAVY METAL® set the standard for alternative contemporary animation. An intoxicating experience not to be missed.

Director: Gerald Potterton

Cast: Richard Romanus(voice), John Candy(voice), Joe Flaherty(voice)
