1.5/5 No Score Yet The Victorville Massacre (2013) Unfortunately, the story here has more than its share of clichés. Typical characters abound: the jock, the good girl, the slut, the loser... And they are not fleshed out much... - Dread Central EDIT

5/5 87% Deathgasm (2015) All the blood, gore, metal, and violence one can want in one place. Deathgasm is one of those movies you'll want to own to run as background during parties. - Cinema Crazed EDIT
