LORDI Announces Hometown Concert

Finnish metal monsters LORDI have announced a hometown gig on December 14 at Lappi Areena in Rovaniemi. This will mark the band's first Finnish gig — indeed, the first European concert — since touring the U.S. with first Ozzfest, then TYPE O NEGATIVE.

As previously reported, the official "teaser" for "Dark Floors" — the feature film starring the Finnish "monster" metal band LORDI — can be viewed below.

The plot summary is as follows: Concerned for her autistic daughter's health, a father sees her removal from the hospital by force as the only option. An elevator breakdown prevents a smooth exit and renders them trapped with others. Yet the incident is only the beginning of a descent into nightmare. As the doors open, the hospital appears mysteriously deserted. When mutilated bodies are found, creatures from a dark world start a frightening attack. It soon becomes clear that the survival of the group may rest solely on the little girl.

"Dark Floors" was shot in Finland at a cost of 4.2 million euros (approximately $6 million), according to Screen Daily.

The film, which features a largely Finnish cast, will premiere in the country on February 8, 2008.

LORDI recently introduced the film at the Cannes Film Festival.

The movie was described by the band's lead singer, Mr. Lordi, as a "traditional modern horror" that will feature monsters and "horrific scenes."

Mr. Lordi (real name: Tomi Putaansuu) added that the band's latex masks and monstrous costumes were derived from horror films so it was "kind of natural" for them to make their own movie.

Twelve images from "Dark Floors" can be found at ShockTillYouDrop.com.
