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.

Watch this if you like bad CGI gore and man-butt..., 7 January 2012
Author: milkhole213 from United States

Blood Pigs, Zombie 90: Extreme Pestilence, The Burning Moon, Das Komabrutal Duell, Bone Sickness, VS trilogy...these are great ultra-gorefests but The Summer of Massacre is just retarded. It's fatal flaw is that 99% of the blood and gore is CGI. And CGI alone is bad enough but this is really, really bad CGI. And the filmmakers blatantly lie about the bodycount of 155. There's maybe 55 on screen kills. Already dead bodies laying around shouldn't count towards the body count and I hope Guinness revokes their world record for body count in a slasher film (if this isn't a blatant lie). I thought Joe Castro was a practical FX man? I've enjoyed his films such as Evil Unleashed, Legend of the Chupacabra and Jackhammer Massacre which if I remember correctly had almost 100% practical gore fx. Why couldn't he do that here? Is he that lazy? This film with all practical gore and blood would have been awesome. No one has ever liked CGI and it's even more hated when it comes to blood and gore. Not only were the fx horrid but the death scenes were stupid. A guy getting a remote control pushed through his mouth and splitting his head? A guy's head getting crushed with a seatbelt? Some of the stuff in the burn story was kinda neat despite still being very dodgy fx wise. Another knock on the film is the complete lack of female nudity and that wouldn't be a big deal if there wasn't any male nudity which unfortunately there was. There was even a sex scene with no nudity. The male nudity wasn't confined to the behind either...trying to tell us something Joe? This is an anthology by the way and none of the stories are worth mentioning. I dare you next time to top this film Joe, but with 100% practical blood and gore fx. Brian Paulin made 3 films just as gory as this and much, much better without any CGI at all and probably even less money than you wasted on this disappointment.
