Have you ever seen a teenage horror movie, something along the lines of Twilight? If you're not a fan of that subgenre, steer clear of this movie. It had some unintentional entertainment value but that's it. When you keep in mind that these guys actually burned down churches and killed people, this movie seems just extremely sad and cheap.

This genre film inspired by the book, "Lord of Chaos" as a retelling or reworking on "true" events of the Norwegian "Black Metal" band, "Mayhem". Whenever a film of cult figures is dramatized, it always brings up a critical debate amongst die-hard fanatics with others (to borrow a word from Rory Cuklin's portrayal of Mayhem's leader, Euronymous, "posers").
This film adaptation works for some viewers as an intense gory or "ultraviolent" arthouse film (think of Tarantino's early works). In which this one has playing at arthouse-styled cinemas, and of course at some horror-thematic film festivals. It's fairly reminiscent of those Italian "Mondo" and "shockumentary" movies (but really feels like a "mockumentary" on Death Metal) with off-kilter editing to make particular scenes unnerving.
Its dialogue and scenes are delivered with awkwardness and "tongue-in-cheek" references to 70s-80s "dubbing" voice technology, 80s/90s horror cliques and subcultures: Deathmetal heads (with "corpse paint"), 70s/80s Euro-exploitation cinema, etc.. The director does intensify the onscreen violence that has sent some viewers out of the cinema.
But that's about it... it didn't really need to directly reference Mayhem (even though it missed a chance to showcase the actual music); it could have pull it off by making characters and situations fictional. But the film does have a certain headbanger "charm" (like 2018 hit, "Mandy") that will probably take its seat amongst a piling grave of cult flicks (with a sales pitch... "Coming soon on blu-ray with collector's edition features") for cult fans to buy.
This is just a wannabee hollywood movie. If you want to know the true story of what happend in the norweigan black metal scene at the time, go do your resarch. This is just missleading bullcrap. Even Varg Vikernes (BURZUM) has his own youtube where he answers and gives you insight of that period.
