Editorial Reviews

At the end of every summer, the children of a local community attend Camp Hope. While teaching them the ways of a proper society, one teacher leads them, unknowingly, into a world of evil. As deep dark secrets are exposed about Camp Hope, the children’s bodies slowly start to be taken over by something evil. What was supposed to be a safe summer camp has now turned into a nightmare that not even faith can end.

Format: Amazon Video
I'm not surprised that the other reviews for this movie seem to be split 50/50 as to whether it is pro- or anti-Christian propaganda, but confused that no one seems to have grasped what's really going on here--Camp Hell (I wonder what the working title was?) is obviously a serviceable after-school-special-esque issue film about the dangers of extremist Christian doctrine when foisted on the tender minds and hormones of teens (I suspect the sect that runs the camp was cast as Catholic so as not to draw the rants of the actual Protestant camps that exist in a similar form) that couldn't find release unless the makers agreed to let the releasing company hire editors to sex it up (and very badly, I might add) by intercutting laughable demon footage stolen from another movie. Fairly certain all the scenes where possession is discussed, including Eiseberg's, were shot and edited in in post-production as well.

Because of this, nothing about this movie makes a lick of sense. It's a shame, really, because the lead performances by the teens in camp are strong and the basic message, that religious indoctrination ignores the realities of life, is a solid one.

Will add that this movie makes me wonder if Andrew McCarthy was ALWAYS this bad, and no one noticed back in the 80s because everyone was just as jacked up on coke as he seems to be naturally.

Anyway...skip it, unless you enjoy the frustrations of imagining the nightmare that must have been played out between the director, writer, and ham-handed editors.

This movie is nothing but super crazy christian extremist propaganda. I am 100% certain that anyone who gave this film five stars has something to do with the film. The movie wasn't worth watching for free let alone buying.

Basically this kids commits a few very small sins so satan starts messing with his head and tormenting people around him. There is maybe a whole five minutes of the stuff that is suppose to be scary, the rest is just crazy christians preaching about how every little thing is a sin.

Candy = sin, rock music = sin, anything about teen pop culture = sin, kissing a girl = sin, a girl talking to a boy alone = sin(and makes the girl a whore).

I don't know why Jesse Eisenberg is on the cover, he's only about five minutes of the film.

Jesse Eisenberg does appear in the movie, but not for long. The movie seems to confuse Christian denominational theology. Traditional Catholics do not believe in "end-time" signs and prophecy. While they do believe in purgatory, they are not that big into it as they used to be. Tommy is connected to a demon, but we aren't sure how and why. There are a bunch of kids at Christian summer camp which is comical as a comic book is torn up and a Journey CD is the instrument of the devil. Tommy keeps asking the question, "If God is in control why is there a devil?" The priest asks Tommy, "When did you let sin into your life?" Of course masturbation is one of Tommy's "gateway" sins. Who knows where it might lead...

The sex scene consists of two teens (one a 16 year old virgin "harlot") dry humping in the dark.

I will say I was confused by the ending and the message of the movie. Is this an atheist movie or a movie whose message is that Satan uses long drawn out conversions to create atheists by manifesting himself as a demon? Does the movie really mean to say Steve Perry is a demon seed, or makes fun of those who do?

As a serious Christian movie, I would give it one star. As a movie that makes fun of Christians...maybe 2 stars.

No nudity, or gosh darn swearing. Dry humping, references to rock group "Journey" and Spawn comic book. Kids almost eating jelly beans. What I really can't believe is the "R" rating. As Sara might tweet, "WTF?"

The cover is misleading, Jesse Eisenberg, is barely in this film. My assumption based on the rest of the movie is that they blew nearly all their budget on getting Jesse Eisenberg to do a 5 minute shot at the beginning of the film, and a 5 second flashback (same footage), followed by a 15 second shot.

The rest of the film was pretty much a train wreck. I kept watching the movie waiting for the "horror". I could have just watched the trailer again, because that's nearly all of the horror in the film. Well if you don't count watching the film itself a "horror".

They put Jesse Eisenberg's face on the dvd cover to sell it, but he is barely in it. The other actors are great even in the smaller roles, but the problem is that the writer/director is writing several different films, and none of them gets fair treatment. Is this a coming-of-age story, a slasher film set in the camp or woods, or is it an anti-religious or pro-religious treatment? It is really hard to say, since none of these threads gets picked up and carried anywhere. Will the young man remain with his family even though he loses belief? What happened to the priest by the end? Will the young gal ever be seen again? Why bother showing the bullies in the forest since they don't have much to do with the story? What was with the demon visions?

Too many things to ponder with no real answers.
