SUMMER CAMP (Lionsgate DVD) - Cabin Fever Lite


At first Summer Camp seems like a typical infection movie. Standard fast zombie/28 days later effects that are not all that great especially when the cover names drops one of the most effective Horror films of all time (The Conjuring). The production value is otherwise strong. The atmosphere is good. When it finally builds some of the action sequences are intense enough to cause tension and excite. I suppose what I'm trying to say is that the whole thing is just blase. It's middle of the road safe Horror without challenge or hook.

You end up feeling like you’re watching a not-funny, poor man’s Cabin Fever. The ending actually makes up for most of the shortcomings in the movie, so if you can stick it out through the generic everything that makes up Summer Camp, you might be pleasantly surprised. The ending works perfectly, makes you laugh and cringe at the same time and then actually have a strong emotional response.  That's what I would expect from the producers of Annabelle an The Conjuring.

No real extras to speak of.
