Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine is using his menacing voice to play a horror villain. A new fright film called Halloween Pussy Trap Kill! Kill! is about to hit theaters, with Mustaine portraying the film’s antagonist who’s locked a rock band in a chamber of death.

Halloween Pussy Trap Kill! Kill! basically looks like a punk rock version of Saw. The movie’s official synopsis reads:

On Halloween an all girl rock-n-roll band called “Kill Pussy Kill” ventures out to play their biggest show to date. However, before hitting the road they manage to unwittingly upset a man. Unfortunately, this man turns out to be an evil genius dead set on revenge.
The evil genius manages to lure the girls into his Hell House, and when they wake up from being gassed, they find themselves trapped inside an unescapable room filled with a vicious variety of devices that can kill them as well as a variety of weapons that can be used on each other.
The rules are simple: advance through all three rooms and you are allowed to go free. The catch is, in order to make it to the next room, someone must die!
With a ticking clock, and the mastermind watching, the question becomes… are you willing to kill to stay alive?

Dave Mustaine plays the voice of the ‘Jigsaw’-like character, whose face is wrapped up in bandages. This allows Mustaine’s voice to truly define the character and stops the need for kung-fu style overdubbing. Mustaine really embraces a “Sweating Bullets” style of vocals, giving his character a feel of mental instability.

The film stars Sara Malakul Lane, Richard Grieco, Demetrius Stear and a legit Academy Award winner, Margaret O'Brien. Halloween Pussy Trap will see a limited release in major markets including Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Detroit, Dallas, San Francisco, Boston, Las Vegas, Houston, Seattle, Minneapolis, Sacramento, Cleveland and New York. Check your local theaters for showings and watch the official trailer above.
