Happy Camp

Happy Camp Synopsis:

In the 1980s Mike (Michael Barbuto) was adopted by Walt and Sandy and was taken to live with them at Happy Camp, a small logging town, with their son Dean. Mike got along instantly with his new brother and was overjoyed that he would finally have a family. This happiness was cut short on October 22, 1989 when Dean is abducted by persons unknown. Mike, the only witness to the crime, can’t remember anything about his brother’s disappearance, the latest in a string of over 600 disappearances over the last 27 years. Twenty years later Mike’s girlfriend Anne (Anne Taylor) has persuaded him to revisit Happy Camp to try to recover his memory of what happened that day. She also persuades him to allow a film crew to videotape the entire process. However rather than have an experience that will help him reconcile with his past, Mike finds that he, Anne, and the film crew are in serious danger.

Movie Review:

What time say about this one, well, I highly doubt it will be anything to good. This time instead of a bad movie putting me to sleep, it actually put my wife to sleep. I think she made it through about the first 20 minutes together. Not sure if the movie just bored her that much or if it was the fact we started it late.

Lots of things I really didn’t get about this movie. The main character seemed to have way to much of his adoptive family for only being with them for less the two years when he was either 7 or 9. So I really don’t get that basis of this movie.

And the Bigfoots? Very unrealistic, and I think if I Bigfoot jumped down from the top of a tree the way it did, it would probably break both of it’s legs.

So if you don’t get around to watching this film, no worries your not missing much.

Movie Rating: 1 out of 5

Movie Review:

It was nice to finally watch a Found Footage movie, and have it actually feel some what original. Just for that alone it deserves a 4 rating.

They never really explained why, but everyone that the main character records and has a messed up face ends up dying. They do make mention that Richard and Eva don’ have a distorted face because Rob loves them. So they never really say if its the camera doing it or not. But that is pretty much a basis for the entire movie. The three characters are on an adventure to a wedding and it’s pretty much them driving and staying at motels. With random people dying along the way.

So if you have Amazon Prime, I would highly suggest checking this one out.

Movie Review:

I would like to say this movie is a must watch, but unfortunately I can’t. This film is another one of those movies that literally put me to sleep. I managed to stay awake for about half of it, but then lost interest and crashed out.

The plot was so so, but the actors missed their mark on this one, there was a couple of the actors that did good, but not going to say who. So if you want my opinion, pass on this one, unless you have nothing else to watch.
