Slayer: The Repentless Killogy is a 2019 American feature film that blends a narrative with a huge live concert by the band.
Revenge, murder, bloodshed, and retribution. The Repentless Killogy film was written and directed by BJ McDonnell, who conceived and directed the three brutal music videos – “You Against You,” “Repentless,” and “Pride in Prejudice”- for Slayer’s final studio album Repentless.
“When we set out to do these initial three videos,” said McDonnell, “our intention was to continue the saga of Slayer and Wyatt at some point down the line. But this is the band’s final album and world tour so this story, the three videos and the “Repentless” live concert at The Forum, is a perfect way to wrap up. This is the end of the monsters.”
Part one of Slayer: The Repentless Killogy begins with the powerful short narrative film that brings together the music of Slayer and the grisly story they wanted to tell. Opening with the trilogy of music videos assembled as one chronological storyline, we are introduced to the narrative’s main character Wyatt (Jason Trost), a former right-wing extremist associated with a gang known as “The Hand Brotherhood,” whose signature mark was a bloody handprint left after a murder had taken place.
The Repentless Killogy stars many of the actors who appeared in the original video series: Jason Trost (Hatchet III) as Wyatt, Danny Trejo, Richard Speight, Jr. (Supernatural), Derek Mears (Swamp Thing; Friday the 13th), Jessica Pimentel, Tyler Mane (X-Men, Halloween II), Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Caroline Williams (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), and Sean Whalen (The People Under The Stairs).
Part two of The Repentless Killogy features Slayer’s entire live set performed at the Los Angeles Forum on August 5th, 2017 and was directed by Wayne Isham who has directed videos for artists including Metallica, Foo Fighters, Kelly Clarkson, and Britney Spears. Presented in front of one of the most striking stage productions of the band’s career, Slayer performs fan-favourites including “South of Heaven,” “War Ensemble,” “Dead Skin Mask,” “Raining Blood,” and “Angel of Death.”
Slayer: The Repentless Killogy will be released for on big screens for a global, one-night theatrical event on November 6th, from Trafalgar Releasing.
Following the global theatrical premiere, on November 8th the film will be available digitally and on Blu-ray, and the soundtrack from that concert will be released as both a two-disc vinyl and two CD packages via Nuclear Blast’s website
