Lazer Team and The Man from Orlando’s Kirk Johnson stars as Lars, the musician who unleashes all sorts of mayhem with his guitar licks. Johnson previously starred in Chris McInroy’s Bad Guy # 2, a crime comedy that revels in as much blood, guts and gore as Death Metal. Death Metal will screen will screen 2:30 p.m. Sept. 24 and 2 p.m. Sept. 27 at the Alamo South Lamar as part of the Fantastic Fest’s Short Fuse Shorts Program.
