I don’t even know why this surprises me anymore, but it does and it also pisses me off. The folks at Wal-Mart have imposed yet another title change to a film whose moniker they found unsavory. Head past the jump to learn what Deathgasm has been renamed.
Director Jason Lei Howden drew our attention to this nonsense on Twitter. The film will officially be known as Heavy Metal Apocalypse at Wal-Mart stores. You can see a look at the alternate branding and cover art below. You can check out our review of Deathgasm right here.
This isn’t the first and certainly won’t be the last time Wal-Mart has imposed unnecessary censorship. Let’s not forget Biggest Spider, Bloodsucking Bosses, or A Holiday Horror Story.
Deathgasm stars Milo Cawthorne, and James Blake. It is currently available on DVD and Blu-ray. Just don’t get your copy at Wal-Mart. However, if you must, you can take some solace in the fact that the film itself has reportedly not been censored.
