Is it just me, or are there a lot of summer camp horrors on the circuit at the moment? The latest one is Camp Dread, an actual homage by director Harrison Smith to the classic summer camp horror movie genre.
The movie will be arriving on DVD on April 15, 2014, and stars Sleepaway Camp‘s Felissa Rose, Human Centipede III‘s Eric Roberts and Hatchet II/III, Halloween‘s Danielle Harris.
The plot is as follows:
“The “Summer Camp” horror trilogy was one of the most popular movie 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 discover 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.“
