User Reviews

the last 30 minutes are gory
25 October 2011 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Stacy Davidson, the director also produced and did the visual effects for this gory flick. So far so good. 100 tears, another gore fest was also done by Stacy. You can easily spot that it was made by horror fans, so many references to other eighties flicks. Watch the killer doing his The Burning most famous shot. See him cut one victim walking on his hands in pieces like in Friday The 13th. And just look at the zombielike females walking with The Beast, it reminded me of Demons.

But is it all that good? Sadly no. It takes a while before the movie gets going. The story is very simple, some goths are looking for a place to have a party. Once they found that place they should make it ready for the party, hanging lights, decoration, testing done by the DJ and to be honest it's a bit too much of that. you have whole songs being played were the goths start dancing. To keep you attracted some girls do go naked on the upper part but after a while you have seen it all before. The dirty language used about F***ing and what to do and not to do when you give head are a bit laughable but finally the last part delivers what it was made for, horror.

It is stated on the disc, Saw looks like it was produced by Disney. Well, it is indeed gory but in another way than Saw but I would surely recommend it to gorehounds. The part were a lesbo goth slut's face is skinned is one to watch. Weird movie, strange ending.

Gore 4/5 Nudity 2/5 Story 2/5 Effects 4/5 Comedy 1/5
