Nomination Year: 2012
SYNOPSIS:  An nice, blended title. Adam, a heavy metal lyricist, "spices up" his lyrics with a Satanic spell. He gets a girl. She happens to be (of course) a succubus. But it was a dream. Or was it?

The party is an orgy of drugs, sex, and murder, courtesy of the succubus, who picks off the guests one by one and enslaves Adam. In the end, though, it turns out the "succubus" is only an escaped lunatic, who is only a character in an author's pulp novel, who is in turn killed by... You know what?
