Calamity Brains:

Girls Gone Dead is basically two movies with plots that rarely intersect, and neither of them good. Plot 1 centers around the stereotypical college vacation weekend tropes, while Plot 2 involves no real story, just a few brief glimpses into the chaos of a Girls Gone Wild ripoff set. There’s some mild attempt to connect the two stories, but it always feels forced – an excuse to include more boobs and crudity moreso than anything else.

The college party weekend storyline is pretty light on the plot. Though there are a few attempts at red herrings, the killer is obvious right off the bat. Beyond a few WTF moments and cameos by Linnea Quigley and Ron Jeremy, there isn’t much to distinguish or recommend this movie from the sea of other slashers.

The Plot 1 storyline is done better in tons of places, and Plot 2 is better done in a few as well, most notably Piranha 3D. You won’t be missing out if you skip this one, even if you’re specifically looking for a boob-filled flick.

Calamity Brains’ Rating: C-

The Codex Mortis Horror Hosts (Ludwig von Stroodle and Calamity Brains) are married and live in West Virginia. Pretty much everyone who sees their cabin agrees that it would be an ideal setting for a horror movie. Their pets include a black widow spider, a smart dog, and a stupid dog. When they aren’t watching horror movies, they can be found at whiskey festivals, Renaissance fairs, and board game nights.
