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.

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.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Clever Script Worth a Watch April 23, 2014
Format:DVD
Emily over at BluntReview(dot)com says: Eric Roberts, who does a larger cameo here, had me at, "They took my finger Charlie," in Pope of Greenwich Village. He is a mega-talent that can't seem to catch the "star maker" role, even after all these years... Anyway, here he lets his werewolf-wide pearlys chomp into a really smart script.That being said, Camp Dread suffers in its on and off again composition techniques, its direction, of a story whose big reveal takes a big viewing commitment to get there. And either you'll be excited at the neat twist, or you've turned off the film as the wait's too gosh darn long. What I'm saying is that sometimes the movie and its desire to thrill (albeit summer-slasher-of-olden-days' movie style) is clear and other times your RCA-dogging at the TV, trying to follow and stay engaged. But, director Harrison Smith (who wrote The Fields) has a dynamic future ahead of him; Camp Dread is perhaps his Dementia 13. There are little planted saplings of rare orchid among some swamp weeds.

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.
