When METALLICA‘s new movie, “Metallica Through The Never”, opens in 3D IMAX on September 27, fans will see the band performing on a massive stage, specially constructed for the film, that incorporates elements of METALLICA live shows from the past 30 years. The Pulse Of Radio asked bassist Robert Trujillo if there is any chance of taking that stage show on the road. “Well, that’s the plan, you know,” he said. “I don’t think you build something that incredible and not, you know, share it with the world. Obviously we’re just trying to get through this phase of the journey and gonna release this beast to the world and present it on the IMAX screens, and then after that, you know, we’ll see where the adventure takes us, you know. We do have this stage, we should put it to use.”

The band has released a third chapter in its “Hit The Lights: The Making Of Metallica’s Through The Never” series of videos.

The new segment focuses on the conception and construction of the stage and live production.

The movie will expand to theaters around the country on October 4 after its limited IMAX opening on September 27.

The film, a blend of concert movie and fictional narrative, stars Dane DeHaan as a member of METALLICA‘s road crew who is sent on a mysterious mission while the band performs at a sold-out arena and events outside grow more bizarre.

This Saturday (September 21), METALLICA will play a special show at New York’s famed Apollo Theater as part of the promotion for the film.

They’re so bloody awful you can only appreciate them if you’re a horror fan, especially if you’d lived through the succession of Friday the 13th films that appeared faithfully each year during the eighties.  To watch them on the tube is brainless fun, but really, the Friday films’ purest viewing element was, naturally, the movie theaters. 

Not quite the stuff of cult legend like the notorious midnight Rocky Horror screenings that were booked for ad infinitum, you had to have been there for a Friday the 13th film back in the day to really get it.  The kids who attended the 2009 Friday remake got it and I recall laughing under my breath how much they ass-clowned, shouted at the screen, blared sexual innuendo and cheered on all the sex and the gore…exactly as my generation had throughout the eighties.

I was too young to get in to the first three Friday the 13th films, and I was still too young to see Friday the 13th, The Final Chapter.  Yet I come from an era where frivolent lawsuits were seldom filed and we lived in a less-hyper society, so much that I was able to pass my 14-year-old self and all of my neighborhood buddies into the theater when the laughably titled Final Chapter came out in 1984. 

Our parents knew where we were and since I was the unspoken leader of our development tribe, the parents automatically trusted me.  One of my friend’s dads hauled the whole lot of us to the theater and on the way took us down a creepy dirt road just to mess with us since he knew we were off to the horror show.  I love Mr. Steve for that, he was a righteous dad.

I’ll never forget stepping up to the box office and getting my own ticket for the first time to a rated R flick and then answering the lady in the booth that yes, all those other kids who apparently looked their ages in her eyes were all with me. It was a moment of triumph probably best savored if you’re a young boy already anticipating the gore, the cussing and best of all, the T&A scattered (or splattered, if you like) throughout Friday the 13th, The Final Chapter.  I felt like I’d pulled of the scam of a lifetime.

While hardly the stuff of Oscar worthiness, I tend to favor The Final Chapter over most of the other films, as do most Friday freaks.  Even though the original Friday has future star Kevin Bacon in it, this one came to play with Corey Feldman, who was well on his way to fame as a child star of the eighties, plus Crispin Glover.  If soap operas are your thing, Peter Barton (who’d also been in Hell Night previously) would go on to enjoy notoriety on The Young and the Restless.  I’m not saying the script and the acting of The Final Chapter is stellar stuff, but it does take the time to build our sympathies for Felman’s family of Jarvises before the clothes fly off at the adjacent party pad and Jason Voorhees comes to crash the festivities.

Really, the biggest star of The Final Chapter–and he doesn’t appear in single frame–is Tom Savini.  While his special effects and makeup work in the first Friday is brilliant, consider The Final Chapter one of his masterpieces.   Today I’m more fascinated by the monster masks Savini created for Corey Feldman’s bedroom of bedlam, but the kill scenes in The Final Chapter are one of the reasons for the film’s enduring popularity.  For me, I still appreciate the film’s setting and attention to detail.  Just the opening segment of all the chaos involved in cleaning up the aftermath of Friday the 13th Part III then sudden silence of the farm as everyone hauls out is a rather nifty bit of storytelling that didn’t appear in these films too often.

You can imagine my underage self, my undererage friends and a sold-out theater screaming with revulsion and then applauding like mutants during the scene where Jason saws and twists the head of Bruce Mahler.  We groaned like we were half sick when we finally see Jason’s full hockey mask by the time he smashes through the partition in the shower and crushes Peter Barton’s face to a pulp.  What I remember most was everyone in the theater going out of their minds during Crispin Glover’s one-two punch kill with the corkscrew and meat cleaver.  He’d played his character to such a dorky lilt no one could believe he’d scored with Camilla More, thus his brutal dispatching was actually celebrated by the crowd with shrieks and hysterical laughing.  Ditto for watching Corey Feldman shave his head to look like Jason then whacking the butcher upside the face with that machete.  The way Jason slides down that blade through his eye is something people still revel in today.

I remember being quite a showoff at the theater, making “boingy boingy” noises during the skinny dip scenes and cracking the audience up.  Everyone got into the act from there and the entire experience became as much a riot from the audience participation the only thing that was missing was the flying toilet paper and spinning popcorn buckets.

Really, you had to have been there.
