Summer Camp

★★☆☆ – (2015) – Counselors prepping a summer camp pick each other off when becoming infected with a curable virus. Basically moves 28 Days Later into the woods without accomplishing anything noteworthy. Characters are okay at first, but they mostly just end up screaming. Not the hardest to get though, and does have a pretty surprising conclusion.

The Final Girls

The Final Girls

★★½☆ – (2015) – A group of friends enter a notorious ’80s slasher film and find themselves victims of a madman. Features the touching dynamic of a girl from the present reconnecting with her deceased mother in the past, but too many other areas are cheap and irritating. The concept often works, but some awful comedy attempts nearly kill the whole experience.

Camp Dread

Camp Dread

★½☆☆ – (2014) – Reality show contestants with damaged pasts gather at a stalked campground. Does nothing new regarding characters, setting, or the stale idea. Has a bizarre murder or two, but none of the eventual twists are worth noting. Wastes a decent B-movie cast.

Stage Fright (2014)

Stage Fright

★☆☆☆ – (2014) – Murders occur during the rehearsals and live showing of a play with a doomed past. Begins with a great, violent murder, but quickly turns into a banal musical with obnoxious characters and ridiculously repetitive songs. Irritating straight through, and the final strive to shock falls short.

Dark Woods

★☆☆☆ – (2006) – Men and women prepping a summer camp are picked off by a couple of killers. A shameless rip off of the Friday the 13th series with a terrible baby twist and a thousand traces of amateurish garbage. An open-ended waste of life.

Return to Sleepaway Camp

★★½☆ – (2008) – Someone’s killing campers at the same location a transsexual murderer struck decades before. As goofy, badly acted and over-the-top as the original, but the twist this time is so obvious from the onset that it’s hard not to feel insulted. Still, this is a mostly fun time with some decent deaths and humor.

Camp Slaughter

Camp Slaughter

★½☆☆ – (2005) – Modern vacationers become trapped in a summer camp that’s always 1981. Has a decent premise that provides plenty of opportunities to become an uninhibited Friday the 13th knock off, but suffers from terrible filmmaking and characters that aren’t even worth dying. Only self-aware jokes take advantage of the time gap.
