Campfire Stories (1991)

This is very LOW movie, the movie did look cheap, I don't let that get in the way, As this turn out to be really decent after all,

3 boys about 12-14 years old go camping and then Bum or Home less man Join in and then he tell them 3 Stories

The first story is about Young couple who making out the woods hear on the radio that o that a murderer with a hook on his right hand has escaped from the local insane asylum , So boy takes to her Home.

This story wasn't to bad but It didn't feel creepy at all but there decent a mount of blood in this story, Which made it more watch able. 4/10

Next story was about two stoner's who are looking for some drug and run into this strange guy who's selling these drugs.

They take but next day, they notice them are rotting away slowly before try to get more before they rot away.

The effect was not bad, very decent for low budget movie, 5/10

3rd story is about Man who come home for Christmas soon, he want is mother money so he kills her by pushing her down stairs so he leaves and goes to brother house to watch his kids

One kids tell story evil Santa Claus known as "Satan Claus look who comes and punishes those who do evil things.

When kids go to bed and then he stalked by someone, until come face to face with Satan Claus

This story sound really good, they could I have done a lot more then that, Satan Claus was not that scary at all

The acting was not that good in that story and it wasn't really that bloody at all. 3/10

The Fourth and Finally story was pirate, who been shipwrecked and another Man warn the pirate about Zombie pirate if find the buried treasure but I as didn't care for what man said , he digs anyone and finds it.

Soon Zombie pirate are out to get him and they don't look bad at all, they some make up effect looked really decent and some looks a bit odd but I don't think there scary at all.

Then boys goes sleep and there is a little small twist, which anyone could see coming.

None of the stories were that scary or creepy at all they just watch able

I give this movie 4 out of 10
