MONSTER CAMP is a rare and fascinating glimpse into the world of live-action role playing, known as LARPing, as people act out the real-life version of the videogame phenomenon, "World of Warcraft." In this award-winning documentary, gamer stereotypes are simultaneously shattered and confirmed. Immerse yourself in a world completely unlike our own; a world built upon fantasy, chivalry, and imagination; a place where you can be anything, dress however, and have almost any power. This is the true story of NERO Seattle, one of over 60 LARPing franchises with thousands of members in North America.

The Special Features on the disc were very good. The deleted scenes were interesting. However, the director's commentary track was not synced properly to the video. This was unfortunate, because it was an excellent commentary with many interesting observations. I would still place this disc on my top 10 list of Greatest Pop-Culture Documentaries.
wrong. L5R Live action, Boffer, and Amtgard were never even mentioned, them being other LARP rulesets.
This was more of a feature on a single NERO outfit that seemed to be nearing the end of its life that is saved in the end by someone who never discusses his reasons for taking it over. He does mention a few things, but its glassed over as if it were the same as the interviewer asking someone about where they work.
Entertaining if you are somewhat familiar with tabletop rpgs, MMORPGs, and LARPing in general, if not, this is not a good thing to watch for research.
