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.Read more ›
The acting was good the plot was cool... i wish the camp would have a bit more creepy,....but its hard to find real creep these days...overalll if you like (Friday the 13th) type movies you will digg this***
Story goes...a bunch of ne'er do well people are auditioning for a new reality show. They will get a free trip to an old-school-style camp for the camera's enjoyment of viscerally intruding into every aspect of their day.
But, once the chosen cast, filled with stereotypes of really rude self-centered people, arrives it's the proverbial Ten Little Indians as members start to disappear. It must be part of the show they all think ...
The rather clog-stepped start has a fun pay off. Since, most of the film's audience should be heading down one plot path only to find themselves chutes and laddered down another; that is very clever.Read more ›
