Product Description

In 1969, in a small hippie commune in Northern California, Timothy Bach — a self-proclaimed guru — maintained a hypnotic hold on his followers. On June 23, something went terribly wrong in the free love and peace commune. In an apparent drug-induced frenzy, Bach began slaughtering his followers. He then disappeared into the night, never to be heard from again. More than thirty years later, five teenagers return to the site of "Camp Utopia." And now, what happened back then...is happening again. Has the evil cult leader returned? Or is it something far worse...

Featuring music & a special appearance by former RATT frontman Stephen Pearcy!

1.0 out of 5 stars I had modest hopes May 30, 2005
Format:DVD
I thought this one looked interesting as it had Stephen Pearcy in it as the killer cult leader. Turns out most of his screen time is during the opening credits when he wanders about his hippy commune with a silly smile on his face. After the credits he has about three lines, then kills the girl he is with and four others. After that he makes only one more 3 second appearance outside of flashbacks to the opening scene.

The rest of the movie is fairly blah to watch. There were no plot twists, no false clues, no building of suspense. The lighting was harsh in many scenes, too bright and washed things out. For a low budget the effects were OK, quite a bit of blood.

The premise is some campers go back to the sight of a hippie massacre 30 years later and run into some problems. They start dying. Actually they are being killed off, but do not realize it until there are only 2 left. I was surprised when the first one got it, but after that it was pretty apparent who would go next and who the killer was. Not a whole lot to recommend in this one, although hopefully the people making it had fun.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very hard to watch, but not the worst out there January 7, 2006
By J. Cook
Format:DVD
[good things]

Aside from the very brief T n' A, the only good parts of the movie was the opening "Timothy Bach massacre" sequence, and the beheading in the tent. Ranger Rogers was funny, but stupid. I suppose he was suppose to be the "Crazy Ralph" and the "Officer Dorf" all in one. The story could have worked, the budget killed the movie, and quite possibly the direction. The actors weren't great, but they were tolerable.

[the bad]

Whoever (Robert Madero or Skippy McGriff?) wrote the script really needs to rethink their career. They took a neat idea and destroyed it with bad dialog and a stale plot. There were no "Red Herrings", false clues, suspense, plot twists, false scares, there was nothing that makes a great suspenseful slasher movie. The kills were very cheap and boring, the directing lacked, the camera angles did not work, and the killer was very obvious from minute one. Note to screen writer; If you are going to have a surprise killer, don't give her away in the first scene by talking about her "past" and how bad it was. DEAD GIVEAWAY.

[final thoughts]

Another independent slasher film with a miniscule budget. I really expected alot out of this movie, I really enjoyed certain scenes, but it wasn't a movie I could really get into. The killer (as I stated above) was very obvious, and they did nothing to make you think anyone else could have been doing the killings. I think the in the director's mind, he thought the pre-credits sequence of the "Timothy Bach massacre" would lead viewers to think he was the culprit, but most fans know that would rarely be the case. This movie is an obvious attempt to sell DVDs with the camp slasher moniker, T n' A, and cheap kills.

2.0 out of 5 stars Waste of a rental August 27, 2007
Format:DVD
Having just seen Ratt in concert, I was interested in seeing Stephen Pearcy's "acting debut" in Camp Utopia. He's fine unfortunately this is a real waste of a rental due to the poor dialoge, bad acting, low quality film. This movie is the epitome of low budget in every respect.
