All sliders to boost! A cult movie in Czechoslovakia, Year of the devil gathers real stars of the local music scene in a delirious prank similar to This is Spinal Tap!; a mockumentary which happily busts the music world while introducing a supernatural tone, or even more dramatic and intimate elements. Guest-starring the leader of Killing Joke.
