Hunter (Adrian Greensmith) and Kevin (Jaeden Martell), two high school friends who live on the outskirts of social norms, are the film’s main characters. Hunter’s favorite bands include Anthrax, Megadeath, Slipknot, and Black Sabbath, and he uses his love of the genre to escape the bullies at his school. Meanwhile, when the school bell rings at the end of the day, Hunter still hasn’t found any peace. Hunter is hurt even more by his father (Brett Gelman) for his lack of concern, while he is the target of hateful comments from other students at school.

Hunter recognizes a soul mate in Kevin. The balance between Kevin and Hunter drives their friendship, even though Kevin prefers to keep to himself, and Hunter is much more outspoken. When Hunter approaches Kevin about forming their band, SkullF*cker, Kevin, a percussionist in the school marching band, jumps at the chance to play music more in his style. Kevin and Hunter enlist Emily (Isis Hainsworth), a bassist, to complete their rhythm section. Kevin specifically chooses her as a good match because of the anger he sees raging inside her, despite her background as a cellist in orchestral studies. The trio will work together to establish themselves as the best band in their high school’s history.

D.B. Weiss told EW earlier, “There’s a heavy wish fulfillment ., When you’re 15 years old, you feel confused and not all that powerful. You feel you can’t make your life the way you want it. Fantasy is about the power. It’s re-conceiving yourself as a larger-than-life heroic figure. It’s probably what drew a lot of kids to the music.”

Isis Hainsworth as Emily Spector

“Emily plays the cello and is a true musician of the trio. Like Kevin, she is very shy and avoids social interaction. She’s intelligent, sensitive, and gifted. Because she and Kevin are so similar, they pull each other out of their shells, but their relationship causes tension with Hunter.”
