Thoughts on Summer Camp
Characters/Performance – Will, Christy, Michelle and Antonio are all students who are going to be summer camp councillors in a Spanish holiday camp and must bond before the kids arrive. They are all generic and we don’t learn too much about who they are before all the action hits the fan.
Story – The story is just how the three students must fight to survive while they must also fight ravenous people including themselves. You do get certain laughable moments in this film and the idea just doesn’t seem to click in the way it should do.
Horror – The horror isn’t on the scary side and just tries to go for over the top kills throughout.
Settings – We are set in Spain which is fine and have isolation that is it.
Final Thoughts – This is a very forgettable horror that lacks the punch it could easily have had.
Overall: Plenty of good ideas that are poorly executed.
