Director Joe Castro's Childhood Massacre Short Film


Director-Writer, Joe Castro (Terror Toons 1&2, The Jackhammer Massacre) introduces another original tale -- the first anthology slasher film which presents eight killers in 5 gorefest tales. Featuring Brinke Stevens (Slumber Party Massacre), Nick Principe (Laid to Rest), and Cleve Hall (Nightmare), plus a never before recorded gore epic body count with more than 150 onscreen deaths.

Ungodly brutal beatings turns Chris, a young man, into a fiend that sets off a bloody, like never before seen, rampage. Beauty is truly only skin deep - Watch a young paraplegic, whose body is also wrecked with spinal bifida, fight for her life as her older, beautiful sister tries to murder her.

It s been 36 years since Jesse s loving mother was raped by his biological father. Now, after hiding and running their entire lives in fear of this murderous rapist --- He has found them! A group of Christian teenagers are stalked, maimed and burned by a local legend in a haunted forest.

Three legendary serial killers terrorize downtown Los Angeles by murdering countless innocent souls and the killer plan is to go out with a real bang.

There s nothing like the sweltering heat of summer to set off a massacre. The Summer of Massacre is a 100 mph slasher ride that never slows down and is packed with enough gore and insanity to send you looking for your barf bag.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stay away February 22, 2012
Terrible, plotless horror film about a jogger who is nearly beaten to death and kills everyone he sees once he wakes up. This isn't even fun for the gore because it's mostly done with computers and looks ridiculously fake. I think the fakeness might be intentional because at times the gore is more reminiscent of cartoons from the Monty Python TV show than anything you would see in an actual slasher film, but this thing gets monotonous fast. The Summer of Massacre is basically the equivalent of watching someone else play a video game for 90 minutes--it doesn't work as a gorefest or as a horror movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Summer of Stupidity August 4, 2013

Can a film be described as retarded or is that insensitive? Not even Brinke Stevens and Nick "Chromeskull" Precipe can save this turd!

1.0 out of 5 stars bad movie September 3, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This movie was so terrible that I watched it in disbelief. I kept waiting for it to improve and the only time it did was when the credits started. The CGI kills were child like and only served to remind me of how bad the movie was. The acting and dialogue were horrible but were better than the writing. I can't think of a single reason to watch this steaming pile of crap. Save your time and money and skip this waste of I don't know what.

2.0 out of 5 stars I usually love mindless gorefests January 7, 2012
By Temple
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 blatanly 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 just 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 dissapointment.
