Trailer, DVDetails: Eric Roberts and Danielle Harris in Meta Camp Slasher, “CAMP DREAD”Movies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
With turns by beloved genre performers Danielle Harris and Felissa Rose, the Eric Roberts-starring summer camp slasher about the making of a modern summer camp slasher exploiting reality show technique seems to be plenty self-aware.
In CAMP DREAD, “The “Summer Camp” horror trilogy was one of the most popular 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 realize 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.”
Image Entertainment is releasing director Harrison Smith’s CAMP DREAD on DVD and VOD this April 15. Find the trailer, below.
