A collection of nine high-octane fantasy and science fiction stories (with some classic 70s-style violence and erotica thrown in) based on the French science/fantasy magazine, Metal Hurlant, Heavy Metal is anthology animation at its best. Technically impressive in its use of rotoscopy, in addition to an amazing soundtrack (Black Sabbath, Blue Oyster Cult, Trust), Heavy Metal was a box office success but also attained cult status not long after its release. A definite must see for any Fantastic fans.
