I had my own record store. I had my own record label. I created a whole new musical genre: True Norwegian Black Metal! And I created Mayhem. What the fuck have you done lately? Poser.

The US theatrical and DVD releases were cut for an R rating, toning down the gory violence of Dead's suicide, Faust's stabbing and Euronymous' murder.
The unrated 'directors cut' version is only available on Blu-ray in the US. It runs for 118 minutes instead of 116 as per the R-rated version. See more »
Idea of making movie about Mayhem band and their bloody history was good, however production wasn't as good. Acting was weak, not serious and almost like a parody. Characters were different than they should be. It was more like a comedy. If anyone is really interested in band's history, better read on Wikipedia or wait for someone else who makes better film about it or check some documentary footage videos on youtube instead of watching this garbage.
