Should it succeed Barrett would once again be at the helm. Bringing together an eclectic group of young “contestants” as well as his former stars Rachel Steele and John Hill, Barrett seems to have put together a sure fire recipe for success. Then people start dying. For real. And “elimination” takes on a whole new meaning as “Dead.tv” clearly shows the slasher film has grown up..

Trashy & Ridiculous – Some like that
I liked the sound of the premise, really anything to do with camp gets me excited to watch, but Camp Dread is so bad, and it never even comes close to the so-bad-it’s-good pile.
What I really hate in this genre I love so much is when endings make the whole film seem pointless and in my opinion thats what this film does. It’s misleading, and im not just talking about Danielle Harris getting a star billing.
The death scenes weren’t too bad, but when the movie finished I was extremely disappointed. If you like low-budget trashy camp flicks try Bloody Murder 2. It’s so bad its good. This is so bad it’s not even worth wasting your time on.
Crystal Lakes Dread.
After finding The Final Girls to be a surprisingly strong Slasher Comedy,I started keeping a look out for similar films. Picking up an old issue of UK film mag Empire,I read Kim Newman’s Video Dungun page,and noticed a review for a similar-sounding flick,which led to me packing my bags for Camp Dread.
After making his name writing/directing and producing the Summer Camp Slasher trilogy in the 80’s.washed-up film maker Julian Barrett decides to revive the franchise.Wanting to keep the budget low,Barrett uses a reality TV show cover to get real troubled teens to sign up to “act” in the show/movie. Returning to the original where the films were made,Barrett covers the camp with CCTV . Revealing to his “cast” that they could get rich if they follow his directions,the group start playing around being in a Slasher,but soon find themselves giving “method” performances.
View on the film:
Slithering around the camp,Eric Roberts gives a marvellous slime ball performance as Barrett,whose Hollywood grin Roberts grips to keep Barrett mischievously ruthless nature just hidden under the sunglasses. Finding herself returning to the Slasher,the pretty Felissa Rose,gives a good performance as Rachel,with Rose giving the flick a comedic kick via knocking the fourth wall down in Rachel’s attempt to escape the genre.
Filming on a real summer camp,writer/director B. Harrison Smith & cinematographer Charlie Anderson cut a chunk of 80’s Slasher atmosphere,with the fading colours of the camp giving the killings a day-glo shine. Limiting the murder set-pieces to side views,Smith cuts into the bright red Slasher gore,but stops it from covering the screen by oddly only showing the murders take place in side angles. Starting production on “Summer Camp 4” the screenplay by Smith gives the first half a wry, satirical bite slashing into washed-up Hollywood glee and reality TV desperation. Chopping up the jokes as the bodies pile up, Smith snaps the playful elements to present a straight Slasher,which whilst hitting some gory deaths,runs dry due to the sudden serious shift,as the group start to dread Camp Dread.
