“Last Days Here” (formerly “Last Rites”), which tells the story of Bobby Liebling, lead singer of the cult hard rock/heavy metal band PENTAGRAM, will air on Showtime, on Thurday, May 23 at 9:30 p.m. and Showtime On Demand from May 24 to June 20.
Frozen for decades in his parents’ basement, Bobby‘s music is finally discovered by the heavy metal underground. With the help of Sean “Pellet” Pelletier, his friend and manager, Bobby attempts to overcome years of addiction, loneliness, and broken dreams. Intimate, raw, and unexpectedly funny, “Last Days Here” portrays the unbelievable journey of a man at the crossroads of life and death.
The film was produced by 9.14 Pictures, an independent production company that specialized in documentary films. The film was directed by Don Argot and Demian Fenton and produced by Sheena M. Joyce. The company’s filmography includes last year’s critically acclaimed “The Art Of The Steal”, “Two Days In April” and “Rock School”.
In a November 2010 interview with Metal Sucks, Liebling stated about “Last Rites”, “It’s been in the making for about four years. And when it started out, I was still real effed up, I mean, I’m using drugs in the movie in the beginning, and I weighed 105 pounds and was practically on my deathbed. And then I met my wife and things started to change, and I started realizing that, hey, doing all this stuff and believing in the wrong, dark instead of light, ways just bring more darkness on you. I don’t like rainy days [laughs] and I don’t like the rain. I’d rather look up to the sun. It’s a spiritual thing to me, a spiritual awakening, I guess you could call it.”
