Camp Dread (2014)


The “Summer Camp” horror trilogy was one of the most popular franchises of the 1980s. However, the decade ended and so did director/writer Julian Barrett’s career. Now Barrett has a plan to resurrect “Summer Camp” in a modern reboot that entails using a reality show as its template and source of fundraising. Should it succeed Barrett would once again be at the helm. Bringing together an eclectic group of young “contestants” as well as his former stars Rachel Steele and John Hill, Barrett seems to have put together a sure fire recipe for success. Then people start dying. For real. And “elimination” takes on a whole new meaning as “” clearly shows the slasher film has grown up.

My Thoughts:

I’m not sure what I enjoyed more about this movie, the actual movie itself or the camp it was filmed at. I say that because I lived in that area for the first 25 years of m life. The camp that it was filmed at I did the flooring there when I used to work for a company named General Flooring. I don’t live in Pennsylvania anymore and haven’t since 2005 so seeing this movie brought back a lot of memories.

In my opinion the only thing that could have made this movie better was if Danielle Harris had a little more camera time. Other than that it’s a good watch. So if you have Amazon Prime you have no reason not to check it out.
