Award-Winning Documentary ‘This is GWAR’ Premieres At Shudder

GWAR’s Black Death Rager Tour EU Leg Begins 27th July

Shudder, AMC Network’s premium streaming site for horror, thriller, and the supernatural is set to premiere the Award-winning documentary, This is GWAR. The film offers rare insight into the 30-plus-year career of one of the world’s most outrageous heavy metal bands, GWAR. GWAR is famous for its grotesque character playing and famously radical, fluid character performances. The screening, which premiered in Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX, and was awarded the 2021 Audience Award at NIGHTSTREAM, can now be seen on Shudder in the USA, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.

This is the story of GWAR, the heavy metal band that has survived for more than thirty years. In the film, the documentary includes interviews with group members, both past and present, as well as other artists, including Weird Al Yankovic, Thomas Lennon, Alex Winter, Bam Margera, and Ethan Embry. Not to mention, never seen footage of legendary GWAR frontman Dave Brockie (Oderus Urungus) only found on Shudder.

GWAR informs: “GWAR is founded on horror, humor, and heavy metal. Of course, we love Shudder! It’s our favorite. Every movie is like a home movie for us. Are you kidding me?? Monsters, demons, the undead, dinosaurs? Those are our people! GWAR and Shudder. Two terrifying tastes that taste terrifying together.” “For more than three decades, GWAR has set the standard for heavy metal horror with larger-than-life personas and gore-filled stage shows that were unlike anything anyone had ever seen,” said Shudder General Manager Craig Engler. “But even their most ardent fans have never seen them like this, as the band and director Scott Barber reveal in moving detail the literal blood, sweat, and tears that have made GWAR the true legends they are today.”

This is GWAR is directed by Scott Barber (Orange Years: The Nickelodeon Story), with producers Tommy Avallone (Bill Murray Stories) and Josh Goldbloom (V/H/S/94). Executive Producers include Bill Parks, Zach Blair, Matthew Helderman, and Luke Taylor. Watch the Shudder trailer below.

Meanwhile, GWAR is set to cross the pond next week to kick off their ‘Black Death Rager’ European tour. In addition to a string of UK dates, the band will play the Ronnie James Dio main stage at Bloodstock Festival in Derbyshire on Friday 12th August.

The band’s new album, ‘The New Dark Ages is out now via Pit Records.
