  1. "Goth": 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.

  2. "Goth": Set in the faceless suburbs of Tokyo, a serial killer has been murdering young women, severing their left hands and leaving their bodies artistically posed in easy to find locations. His antics catch the eye of two high school students, the beautiful loner Morni and the popular, seemingly-happy Kamiyama. Both teens harbor a disturbing fascination with death, murder and human cruelty. After Morino finds what she believes to be the killer’s notebook, the two attempt to track him down, not to bring him t justice, but to be able to see the corpses before the police. Inevitably, the closer they come to the killer and his victims, the more they put themselves at risk, testing the limits of their shared obsession.
