Goth – 2003 – United States

In Goth’s opening scene, a young woman named Crissy wakes up amid the remains of a frat party. She is covered in blood and everyone is dead. The rest of the movie is a flashback. Crissy and her boyfriend Boone go to a metal concert at a goth nightclub. There they meet a woman named Gothe (pronounced “goth”) who offers them a drug called “white light”. Gothe is scantily dressed, covered in tattoos, and possibly deranged. Crissy and Boone take the drug, which is supposed to induce a near death experience.
