GWAR Documentary ‘This Is GWAR’ Headed To Shudder


GWAR documentary ‘This Is GWAR‘ has been acquired by streaming service Shudder in the United States, Canadian, UK, Ireland, Australian and New Zealand territories. The film will debut on that streaming service on Thursday, July 21st. Scott Barber directed the feature, which chronicles the band’s 30-plus year career in metal.

Shudder General Manager Craig Engler commented:

“For more than three decades, GWAR has set the standard for heavy metal horror with larger-than-life personas and gore-filled stage shows that were unlike anything anyone had ever seen. But even their most ardent fans have never seen them like this, as the band and director Scott Barber reveal in moving detail the literal blood, sweat and tears that have made GWAR the true legends they are today.”

The band themselves added:

GWAR is founded on horror, humor, and heavy metal. Of course, we love Shudder! It’s our favorite. Every movie is like a home movie for us. Are you kidding me?? Monsters, demons, the undead, dinosaurs? Those are our people! GWAR and Shudder. Two terrifying tastes that taste terrifying together.”

A trailer for that documentary is available below. GWAR‘s fifteenth studio album “The New Dark Ages” saw a release earlier this month.
