Plot Summary:
"GOTH blurs the boundaries between reality-driven horror and the hallucinatory style of REQUIEM FOR A DREAM in this raw and blood-soaked ride through the dark underbelly of the Gothic subculture. Chrissy and her boyfriend BOONE are two Gothic teenagers living in L.A. who have seen and done it all. As the sun goes down, they get ready for a hardcore concert at the local club. The night takes a gruesome turn when they run into a savage, darkly beautiful woman with a taste for pain and sexual deviance. She represents the darkest, most depraved end of this subculture; for her, it's not just superficial costumes and makeup but a way of life that thrives on murder and madness. Promising new thrills and experiences, she takes Chrissy and Boone on a wild, terrifying ride that progresses from drug-fueled orgies to random acts of violence, leaving a trail of mutilated victims in their wake."

Brad Sykes most ambitious project to date (in my eyes) turned out to be quite different to his usual stuff, but the grown up subject matter and mature approach was highly welcome.

Chrissy and Boone are a cute Goth couple who head to a club one night and quickly regret it as they join the sinister titular character on a journey to the depths of depravity and back again.

When Phoebe Dollar introduces herself as Goth, the kids proclaim that they too are 'goth', which she soon sets out to test.

The kids travel the City streets in a van driven by an unseen party as Goth forces them to take 'White Light' and makes them have sex with and then murder people 'Last House on the Left' style.

Phoebe Dollar who I assumed would be a one trick pony was good as Goth, so I would like to see her tackle further roles which don't require her to be a bitchy sorority sister with boobs, and the rest of the cast gave credible performances too.

It is evident Brad Sykes really worked hard on this one and despite a Producer who had little faith in the project, he proves that he can tell a good story without having to resort to having girls run around with their boobies hanging out.

OVERALL SUMMARY
An alternative movie and a welcome breath of fresh air in the stifling genre world.
