Heavy Metal script
Heavy Metal (1981)
Synopsis: Adventures from deep space to futuristic New York, and beyond. Each world and story is dominated by the presence of the Loch'nar -- the sum of all evils manifest as a glowing green sphere whose power infects all times, all galaxies, all dimensions. To some, it appears as treasure, a green jewel they must possess. Others worship it as a god. Few escape it. Even in death and through death its powers continue. From war to war and world to world it seems invincible.

As their transformations are complete, the barbarians gather

behind their leader into an ever-growing mob of murderous

looking sub-humans.



A frightened Kraanian councillor spurs his horse forward through

the beautiful glass gates, as in the distance we hear the sound

of ten thousand approaching footsteps.

The camera pans to a hillside overlooking Kraan. In the glow

of sunset, the outline of the BARBARIAN LEADER, riding a black

war-horse, appears at the hillside and stops. Then with a

thundering of footsteps, the outline of five thousand barbarians

comes into view behind him, filling the horizon.



He is now wearing a strange medallion around his neck as, wild-

eyed, he screams to signal the attack. The bloodthirsty horde

charges down the hill behind him.

The camera moves with the barbarians as they crash through the

gates of the city, destroying everything in their path. Smoke

and flames are everywhere. Ahead of us, terrified Kraanians

run from the onslaught.

As we track up over the burning rooftops, we see the BARBARIAN

LEADER riding his war-horse in the streets below. Shouting

a command, he waves his men on as they move toward an impressive

doomed building in the middle of the city.



At the far end of this huge glass hall, the Kraanian Council

sits around a marble table. From outside, we hear the battle


Pulling closer we can hear the worried voices of the Council



They're killing everyone. We

must escape!
