Editorial Reviews

Review

As horror fans, we know when to take things seriously. We also know when not to. Let me just begin this review by stating clearly for all to read: Caesar and Otto's Summer Camp Massacre is one of those films that is not to be taken seriously and is, therefore, fun to watch. If you're looking for serious horror, look elsewhere. If you are looking for low (or non-existent) budget filmmaking that is more interested in enjoying itself than it is making a serious horror film, this is a good one to watch. The film centers around Caesar (Campfield), a swishy pathological liar and wannabe tough guy, and his half-brother, Otto (Chomicki), a hapless oaf who keeps getting caught up in his brother's hair-brained schemes. After beating up a large man who turns out to be the chief of police's retarded brother, the two high-tail it out to hide as summer camp counselors. Completely devoid of campers, the camp is staffed by a weird assortment of rejects with secrets. When counselors begin disappearing (dun-dun-duuuuuuuuun!), the pair discover that there's a killer on the loose. This movie gets points for its unlikely set of star cameos, including Joe Estevez (playing Joe Estevez), Brinke Stevens (as Otto's former girlfriend), and Felissa Rose, who spends the majority of the movie giving her best Sleepaway Camp stare and creeping the hell out of the other characters. It also gets points because, instead of trying to hide the low budget, the filmmakers revel in it. Using gags like rocking the car to show movement, fast cut-aways, and buckets of blood, the film manages to pull off some really interesting moments that larger budget films couldn't manage. And the special make-up effects are as cheesy as they come, but in the best way possible. Caesar and Otto's Summer Camp Massacre has some genuinely funny moments coupled with some real "groaner" style humor that makes it great to watch if there's plenty of alcohol. Funny and unashamed, it's a movie that is worth watching at least once. --DreadCentral.com

Writer, director and star Dave Campfield ( Dark Corridor ) throws his hat into the ring of horror comedies, focusing his attention on the infamous Sleepaway Camp movies. But except for one brief moment of smug (and forced) self-awareness, Campfield delivers an entertaining little movie that is refreshingly irony-free. In all honesty, Caesar and Otto the first feature starring the loveable misanthropes from Campfield s previous shorts is best for all the things that it s not. The script wisely avoids drug humor so any dopey gags are of the goofy variety rather than the giggly-hip Scary Movie unfunniness. It also avoids filthy humor and, for the most part, reliance on profanity for laughs. A few of the profanities are scattered here and there, mostly in Caesar s most sugar-high-infused dialogue, and they actually stick out from the rest of the straightline-punchline exchanges. Most of characters are played by genuine actors, all of whom seem to be committed to the project and want to bring something extra to their roles. And the limited gore is well-executed (sorry) and torture-free. (When one counselor takes a shovel to the shoulder, he cries out in agony: My sweater! ) Campfield s intentions are worn on the box art, with one critic proclaiming it Abbott and Costello on hard drugs! but that s far from accurate. It isn t too difficult to envision a world where Caesar and Otto got their start in a vaudeville that lasted into the 80s before moving on to a string of movies with identical plots revolving around the duo and their handling of familiar situations. So the Abbott and Costello part is right but the hard drugs is not. Except for shots taken at the slovenly Otto, most of the humor is cruelty-free. There are insult jokes, yes, but they re not designed to drive the targets sobbing to therapy. Actually, a closer comparison would be to the Bowery Boys (or even Ray Dennis Steckler s The Lemon Grove Kids ). When I mentioned to Campfield that his Caesar seemed to me like a cross between the lead Bowery Boys Huntz Hall and Leo Gorcey, he proudly countered Maybe Huntz Hall and Norma Desmond! And that seemed more appropriate. After all, he does describe the character as a belligerent nancy boy (yet still avoiding any cheap-shot gay bashing). ... But what sells the DVD is not the feature but the back up short, ...Meet Dracula s Lawyer. Whisking by in a hilarious breeze, the short fares better even with more cameos, including a funny self-abusing Debbie Rochon, a deadpan Desiree Gould (another Sleepaway Camp vet), and a surprisingly subdued Lloyd Kaufman. This time, the boys are up for the murder of Vlad Dracula s lesser-known brother Steve Dracula (played by Brian Dennehy s lesser-known brother Ed Dennehy) and Campfield is given a real run for his money in terms of scene-stealing from Francis Leik, who plays bloodsucker lawyer Jimmy Drainum. Leik is a dead-ringer for Michael Ironside and owns his sleazeball character. With a brisk pace and tighter editing than Summer Camp Massacre (and some middling-to-quite-good green screen ingenuity), Meet Dracula s Lawyer is the icing, including the fancy flower-thingies and cursive writing, on the horror comedy cake. --Film Threat

Product Description

After unintentionally punching out the Chief of Police s mentally challenged brother, a flamboyant tough guy, Caesar, is on the run. Together with his slovenly half brother, Otto, the two take on false identities and get jobs as counselors at the strangely vacant Camp Sunsmile. The would-be summer camp has attracted a motley crew of Hollywood outcasts, all of whom seem to be hiding something. But when the mysterious Carrie (Felissa Rose) shows up, the counselors begin disappearing one by one. Soon, Caesar and Otto find themselves at the edge of a summer camp killer s blade as they run, duck, and swoosh for their lives!

5.0 out of 5 stars A modern film with an instant classic feel. October 6, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Everything about this film has a classic slasher film to it. However instead of being unintentionally funny like most of the 80's slashers, this movie purposely incorporates a good amount of humor into it. The Caeser and Otto duo very much remind me of a Three Stooges style of comedy. It has a very slap stick, old school feel to it. It's just all around goofy, but being that its SUPPOSED to be goofy and not be taken seriously is what really works for this film. I thought it was extremely entertaining. My favorite character in the film is Dick, played by Deron Miller. Although he has a relatively small part in it, it's very memorable. My favorite part about the movie is the dialog. The interaction and jokes between all of the characters made it very enjoyable. I literally laughed out loud at certain scenes, and I don't often do that. Another thing I really liked were the bonus features. I often buy blu ray versions of movie just for the bonus features they seem to skip on regular DVD format. There are HOURS of extra bonus scenes and commentary. I would highly recommend this film to any fan of horror, or fans of comedy, I think both would like it well. Even though it was just released I feel like I'm watching a movie straight out of the 80's. Its a modern film, with an instant classic feel. There's no better way to describe it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Horror-Comedy October 7, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Caesar and Otto's Summer Camp Massacre is the third great horror-comedy I've seen lately, with the other two being Scream 4 and Gingerdead Man 3: Saturday Night Cleaver. And it's a treat, since the horror-comedy is my favorite genre of film. They are just usually so much fun, and Caesar and Otto's Summer Camp Massacre is no exception. It's a tight 75 minutes, full of comedy, gore, and in-jokes, with special appearances from B-movie veterans Brinke Stevens, Joe Estevez, and Felissa Rose. Rose actually has a good chunk of screentime and her appearance is obviously a homage to Sleepaway Camp. And I must say that Dave Campfield is absolutely hilarious as Caesar. He's like Don Knotts on speed. He delivers his lines quickly and most of his lines are funny. So if it's an independent horror-comedy that you want, you should definitely buy Caesar and Otto's Summer Camp Massacre!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and campy (no pun intended) March 5, 2012
Format:DVD
I have a friend who actually was part of this film. I had wanted to see it for that reason alone, but after watching the film I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the movie.

You should know already if this type of film will appeal to your or not. It's a fun spoofy take on the horror genre. Layered with plenty of cheese, the film never becomes boring or dull. It manages to stay funny and entertaining from the very start until the end.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very funny May 3, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I read the reviews and thought I would be in for a treat, but in the first 3 minutes I realized this movie was going to suck and I had to force myself to watch it in its entirety. Caesar and Otto are character clones of Daffy Duck and Porky Pig and there were only about three or four mildly amusing gags in the whole movie. When I think of the potential they had with this script it really frustrates me that they loused it up. Take for example the scene of Caesar (Campfield) punching the police chief's retarded brother, which sounds like a mean spirited hilarious black comedy scene, but isn't thanks to Campfield's flare for over the top stupid Looney Tunes comedy. The short film about Dracula's lawyer was slightly better than the main feature, but suffered because Campfield is stuck in Daffy Duck mode.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious!!! November 6, 2011
Format:DVD
As a huge fan of the old slasher films I was quite looking forward to watching this movie for some time. I was not disappointed! I laughed the ENTIRE time. It was one of the most fun movies I've watched in a LONG time. There was still gore (which is always good) but the clever dialog, "inside" jokes, and the wonderful acting of the cast really made it shine. I will be sure to check out anything these guys put out in the future.
