Heads-up, metal fans! Cult band “Iron Maiden” is coming to Wiesbaden – well, not to Schlachthof, but to Murnau-Filmtheater at least, thanks to this enchanting comedy offering a rare look at Columbia’s capital and featuring a ripping soundtrack to boot. Two young metalheads are champing at the bit to catch their rock idols’ first concert in Bogotá, when the unthinkable occurs: scammers steal their tickets…

“Besides Heavy Metal and Iron Maiden, THE NIGHT OF THE BEAST is about the raw beauty of Bogota, friendship and authentic as well as non-stereotypical metal heads.” (www.metal-hammer.de)
