Awful entry in the T & A teen sweepstakes
11 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure in what context the other commentators had when writing their reviews, but by any reasonable standard this is a near unreleasably bad film. It probably got a minimum of theatrical play-dates and some cable airings over the years. With the exceptions that it was one of Chuck Vincent's first crossover films and that it denotes one of Scream Queen Linnea Quigley's first film roles, very little distinguishes SUMMER CAMP as a feature film.

Mean, tasteless and without humor, wit or story, SUMMER CAMP just glides along stringing scene with scene. The frequent nudity is probably what garnered the film a release at all. The film played as part of the Grindhouse series playing at L.A.'s New Beverly Cinema, and, even with a dedicated audience the laughs were few. According to IMDb, the film is not available on DVD (or even VHS) - and that is not a surprise.
