May 20, 2008 The new horror movie written by Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson now has an official site. The film is named after Dickinson's solo album, "Chemical Wedding," one of the best heavy metal albums of all time.
Check out the site here. The film is directed by Julian Doyle, editor of Terry Gilliam's "Brazil." Simon Callow stars as a Professor Oliver Haddo, a modern Cambridge scholar who becomes a re-incarnation of Aleister Crowley, the famous occultist. The plot concerns the professor's invocation of Crowley, who then becomes the professor himself. Having done so, he creates havoc on the university campus.
