Heavy Metal (the movie) is turning 40


This story reminded me that Heavy Metal (the movie) is turning 40 this year. I remember watching it in the theatre at the time and being thoroughly unimpressed, but it’s gone on to become a cult favourite without me. However, its influence must have last because I’ve been reading Heavy Metal magazines from the 1970s recently and realizing they are just as weird as I remembered.

The Cult Classic Movie “Heavy Metal” Turns 40!
The soundtrack features Black Sabbath, Blue Oyster Cult, Sammy Hagar, Journey, and more.
