Editorial Reviews

The "Summer Camp" horror trilogy was one of the most popular franchises of the 1980s. However, the decade ended and so did director Julian Barrett's career. Now Barrett plans to resurrect his gory series via a modern reboot patterned after reality filmmaking. With his former leading lady and an eclectic group of 10 young “contestants,” Barrett returns to the same locale where his old splatter-fests were filmed. When one of the campers is found savagely murdered, they realize there’s more at stake than just fame and fortune. Each of them is in a fight for their lives as they realize summer is over – forever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can anyone survive a summer at 'Camp Dread?' April 12, 2014
Format:DVD
There's a fine line between respectfully imitating the slasher genre and failing at it. I can't quite tell you why it works at times and why the concept falls flat at others. The "Scream" movies did a great job of being self-aware, celebrating all the typical ingredients of a good killer flick, and then expanding upon it. "Camp Dread" is a movie that gets the overly-tried and true formula for fun, sophisticated gore, and thrills right for the most part.

A group of troubled young adults are recruited to attend a summer camp at the location where a series of slasher films were made in the 1980s. Director Julian Barrett (Eric Roberts) invites them to take part in a reality TV-based reboot of his franchise where the last person left alive wins a million dollars. The attendees think it's all staged until corpses are found strewn out all over the campgrounds.

"Camp Dread" tries very hard to rise above the countless other clones of "Friday the 13th" that are released weekly straight-to-DVD. Although not perfect, its genuine effort through the use of practical gore effects and an attempt at a fun surprise ending far outweigh its sometimes tedious checklist of genre do's and don't's. In a world firmly submerged in the use of CGI, it's a breath of fresh air to see the use of theatrical blood and prosthetics, even if they don't always look as "real" as they should.

The cast of victims are your typical bunch of multi-cultural types from all walks of life. Each one is given traits that instill in the viewer a sense of urgency to see each of them die a horrible death. The actors play their roles quite well on a B-movie level. Eric Roberts is as smarmy and loathsome as ever in his role as the washed-up and desperate movie director.

2.0 out of 5 stars Camp Dread is Somewhat Dreadful June 10, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie tries to do so many things that are inventive and reflective. It just falls short in almost every area. The pacing feels off, the dialogue is lackluster at best, the kills are generally disappointing, (But I did jump at the arrow through the eye. Kudos there.) and the film tries to tackle some large issues but never develops any of them to full depth. The acting was decent and the constant homage to films from the past was nice. But over all Camp Dread was just not that satisfying.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't be Fooled by the Good Reviews April 18, 2014
Format:DVD
This movie boasts about how it's a homage to 80's slasher flicks...and then one watches and wonders exactly how, as the movie takes far too long to get going and ends up getting nowhere. Eric Roberts and Danielle Harris are good, but they are not in the film all that much. There is a fair amount of gore towards the end, but that is hardly worth the investment of time and money. By the end I was wondering, if I'd wanted to watch a movie that was similar to the classic 80's horror films, why not simply watch one of the actual classics instead? This movie does, in a sense, pay tribute to certain 80's horror films...the bad ones.

Eric Roberts and Danielle Harris are in it. That's enough to hook any horror junkie. Don't be disappointed if you are signing on for Danielle. She's only in the beginning and the end. The summer camp slasher is updated by setting it as a 'reality tv show', which is sprung on the 'contestants' at the last minute. They thought they were going to an 'Outward Bound' type of camp because they were in some kind of trouble and it was either that or rehab/jail/parents disowning them, etc. They are informed that the 'last one standing' will win 1,000,000. The director, played by Eric Roberts, had a big success in the 80s with a slasher horror flick set at the same camp the present "reality tv show" is set. He recruits his former star who is now a counselor/therapist to work as the counselor for the contestants. They are not teens, more like 21 and up but not past late 20s. He is planning on taking this taping and pitching it as a remake for his old horror hit. Time has not been kind to him so he's got an urgency for money. Anyway, the movie is pretty straightforward for this type of flick. There are tensions and conflicts between campers and nobody knows who the "killer" is (as far as they are concerned, its just an act) but then suddenly things take a turn for the too much reality. The killer's identity isn't known until the end. There's an novel little reveal toward the end about the funding for this 'show'. LOL This flick is like one of the many camper slasher flicks that came out in the 80s. Its mission is to give the horror junkie something to watch, not aiming for any awards. That's why I didn't round up and give it a 4. Better you keep your expectations in check. I wouldn't recommend it as the main event in a movie night shindig. But if you are a horror junkie and need your daily fix, this one will fit the bill. Its not PG13ified or sentimental in any way. Its also nice to revisit the good old days of the genre, and Eric Roberts is always reliable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Truly dreadful July 2, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Camp Dread is truly dreadful and I wish that I had heeded the negative reviews before I bought it. We could not even bear to watch this film to the end, which is extremely rare.

This is one for the charity shop!
