Trivia

Most of the movie was filmed guerrilla-style, meaning no permits and lots of secret locations. While filming the scene where Amy Chludzinski is being pursued through the woods by a knife-wielding cannibal, a New Jersey Forest Ranger unknowingly stumbled onto the set. Director Jon McBride immediately halted production for fear the Ranger might get the wrong idea and actually shoot somebody. See more »

Quotes

Jon: [after escaping the cannibals for the first time] Well, it sure was an intresting way to start off a weekend.
Chris: Yeah, and I hope it doesn't get any more intresting.
Amy: Ditto.

Campy Cannibals create kooky calamities
9 January 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You can tell this movie was done with almost no money and some of the acting is hilariously bad. BUT.."hilariously bad" is not truly bad in the sense of tortuous. I was laughing quite often through this ridiculous farce. You have to hand it to someone who can make a movie about cannibals that is fun to watch. It's hard to believe this is Jon McBride's FIRST movie (well either this was his first or another low budget classic called "Woodchipper Massacre" was his first) and Blood Red Planet was a RECENT film he was a part of.

CC is 10 times better and easier to watch then BRP. McBride needs to go back to where he came from and try for more films like Cannibal Campout.

Perhaps Cannibal Campout 2, or a crossover, Cannibal Camper Woodchip Massacre! Woodchip Cannibals!

If you like hilarious bad movies with some life in them, check this one out
