Movie Reviews

Oh, dear Goth, make it stop!!!!
Sally Friedrich | 10/07/2005

"I agree with my fellow critic, Mr Martin.... worst movie ever made. All I could think after watching this movie was "that is 2 hours of my life that I will never get back." Bad acting, bad special effects, bad script. The only good thing about this movie was when it was over! DO NOT BUY THIS MOVIE!! Set it down and run far, far away."
An apt summary

"This movie is like lousy porn, but without he sex scenes. And pay no attention to the other reviewer's comparison to " tacky movies like the Rocky Horror Picture Show." Unlike this movie, the Rocky Horror picture show had thing like actors, an non-handycam video recorder, and a story written by a writer over the age of fourteen."
I watched it. I can't un-watch it.

"I rented this to watch with a group of friends, originally. We saw it in the video store, and wanted to see how awful it was. Gluttons for punishment, my friends and I are. What we were expecting was some kind of sensationalist crap, written by someone who doesn't really know what they're talking about, trying to cash in on what seems to be the current trend. And basically, that's what this movie is. But as bad as I knew it was going to be, I didn't expect this level of awfulness. It looks like it was shot on someone's home video camera, and the script... well, read on."Goth" is the story of a young girl named Chrissy, who has involved herself in the goth scene of LA. Our tale begins with Chrissy and her boyfriend, Boone, heading off to a concert for some kind of Korn rip-off. There, Chrissy meets the movie's title character. Yes, that's right, there is a character in this movie named Goth. (Get ready for all sorts of puns. "Hi, I'm Goth!" "Yeah, so are we!") According to Goth, she is the most hardcore person in the scene. Everyone else is just a lame poseur. This, of course, includes Chrissy, and Goth wants to take her under her wing and show her what being goth really means. Apparently being goth means murdering and raping innocent people for kicks and giggles. Oh, and lots and lots of drugs. Goths, says Goth, are beyond the feelings of guilt and repression that keep normal people in line. God help any 15 year old babybat whose mother sees this movie. So, what happens? Does sweet, innocent Chrissy stop Goth? Or does she turn to the dark side and become Goth's spooky little sidekick? Do you even care? I'm sure that some of you may think that this film sounds amusing, but trust me, it isn't. It's just bad. Save your money."
Oh my goth! This was funny.

"I rented this movie expecting to see a portrayal of "Goth culture" in its stereotypical form (e.g. vampires, thrill killings, "embracing the darkness"), and well. . . I was right. However, me being familiar with the Goth scene (which is just music despite the claims of an angst ridden teenager), I was able to find some priceless humor in the movie. The humor doesn't apply to just the Goth scene, but any type of music scene where a large portion of its members try and make themselves out to be elitists and live their lives according to the image of whatever music it is that they're into. Goth ( the movie) can be easily described as The Doom Generation meets Training Day; except instead of the co stars (Chrissy and Boone [what the hell kind of name is that?]) struggling to make the narcotics squad, they're on a quest to be able to truly label themselves Goth, and prove to the main character - who by coincidence is named Goth - that they're not poseurs; which leads to Goth threatening the couple to take part in bad things (things that Goths allegedly do when they're together) by taunting them with the dreaded question: "What's the matter? I thought you guys were Goth?" Of course there are a few twists in this movie, but I can't figure out how to talk about them without giving everything away. It wasn't the best story in the world, but the movie did keep me entertained which is what it's supposed to do, and it had some really good industrial songs by some lesser known bands which I thought was cool. I'll just conclude my review with a few questions I have (and I'm sure you'll have) after seeing this movie: how could this be a movie about Goths if half of the soundtrack is Electronic-Industrial? How did Boone's glass refill itself with Absinthe after he clearly poured it out in the alley? And who in God's name is driving the van?"
