DVD review: Girls Gone Dead (2012)
When a group of sexy high school friends reunite for spring break during their freshman year of college, all they are looking for is a skinny dipping good time. Instead they find a sadistic blood thirsty killer wielding a medieval war hammer has targeted them to be his next victims. Girls Gone Dead is written by Ryan Dee, Meghan Jones and Michael Hoffman Jr who directes alongside Aaron T. Wells. Although some of the acting is pretty bad it is for the most part pretty decent. The movie features many cameos (but I only recognized Ron Jeremy and Linnea Quigley). It´s quickly paced, never gets boring or dull. It´s professionally shot and edited. It isn´t scary, there is no real suspense but it´s very entertaining. There are a lot of unlikeable characters in this and most of the male characters are douche bags. The masked maniac, brandishing a battle axe, is pretty cool. It´s gory, it´s not a gorefeast but it was certainly much gorier and violent than I expected. The gore is old school practical make-up fx and most of it looks good. There is gratuitous T & A, including full frontal nudity, and a lot of attractive girls and I do mean a lot.
This review is based upon the Unrated region 1 DVD release from Entertainment One.
Rating: 6½ out of 7. I enjoyed this a lot, it´s pretty much what I expected. Never a dull moment and plenty of T & A, plenty of gore and some comedy. Grab a beer and enjoy it with friends!
