Bare breasts, disgruntled taxi drivers with disintegrators in the back of their cabs, metal from Black Sabbath and Blue Oyster Cult—Heavy Metal is an early '80s adolescent boy's fever dream.
Each of the anthology flick's nine segments draws on the sci-fi/fantasy world of the popular magazine of the same name. There's been talk of a second sequel—the first, Heavy Metal 2000, isn't much to write home about—with involvement from David Fincher and others, but we aren't holding our breath.
