The Summer of Massacre -- Trailer for The Summer of Massacre
The Summer of Massacre -- NON-RATED CONTAINS EXTREME VIOLENCE AND GORE.

This movie is insane, actually insane is an understatement. It's a 100 MPH gore ride that never slows down. This film offers you not one but 8 maniacal, terrifying, relentless, and unstoppable killers. 

Joe Castro, a direct protege from Herschell Gordon Lewis, The Godfather of Gore helms the creation of this Blood epic. Castro uses computer generated technology to up the ante of your standard 'deranged maniac kills innocent teens one by one' to heights no one every imagined. In the tradition  of Castros life work he gives us once again a truly original experience: the first ever slasher anthology.

Emmy award winning editor Steven Escobar and Cult Movies Magazine editor, SCHROEDER bring Castro’s bizarre style to life in this, over the top, splatter fest.

Hold onto your barf bag. You might need it by the end of the film as you view the slicing, tearing, ripping, gashing, stabbing, impaling, beating, squishing, choking, burning, staking, cutting, hacking, dismembering, decapitating, hanging, bashing, dicing, chopping, crushing, pounding, spearing, scalping, suffocating, deaths the psychotic serial killers hand out to anyone that is in their path of vengeance. 

So prepare yourself for a body count so high, so bloody, so shocking, it is unlike anything have ever seen in the history of slasher films.

Easily the Worst Film I Have Seen in Years, 12 January 2012
Author: gavin6942 from United States

Normally I would write a plot here, but this film has no recognizable plot. It is simply one cheesy death after another with no story, characters or dialogue.

I really wanted to give this film the lowest score possible, but I have to maintain that "Hell's Threshold" is still probably the worst. Maybe I will change my mind... sitting through this was the most awesome torture ever. I was so bored, I wanted to punch my screen and slit my own throat. It truly is a pile of horse apples.

I can respect a film that tries to set the record for on-screen kills. But why does this even count? The CGI was so bad, just abysmally bad, that it was more cartoon than movie. Characters show up for no reason other than to be killed by objects that should not be able to kill them. If this film had anything going for it (and it does not), the visuals would take away all the credit.

What saddens me is that Broken Glass picked this one up for distribution. Sure, being an independent distributor, they cannot all be winners. But this film will reflect on the Broken Glass brand, and not very favorably. Once upon a time, Lions Gate was a respected genre company. Then they started releasing everything they could get their hands on, and no longer have much credibility. Please, Broken Glass, do not make that same mistake.

I do not recommend this film for any reason. Not for fun, not for parties, not for dates, not for background sound... I would not even want a copy of this within 500 miles of me. I hope to never meet the creators, because it would be too difficult to hold back about how awful this moldy piece of cow dung is.
