Lords Of Chaos

Rory Culkin on Stepping Into the World of Black Metal for ‘Lords of Chaos’

In Jonas Akerlund's film 'Lords of Chaos,' which debuted last year at the Sundance Film Festival, the director takes audiences inside the real-life story of Norwegian black metal band Mayhem, a controversial group that carried out a series of church burnings and murders in 1980s Oslo, Norway. Rory Culkin, who stars as Mayhem founder Euronymous, sat down with The Hollywood Reporter In Studio to discuss what drew him to the film, saying, "The script came with a picture of Euronymous in corpse paint, so that immediately grabbed my attention."
