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 »

Enjoyable trash.
17 March 2007 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

I'm an avid lover of low budget and even some trash and that's why I decided to give a chance to "Cannibal Campout".

I won't get into the plot because you've seen it before. It deals with the typical group of friends who get lost in a road and guess what? end up being victimized by a group of American cannibals in the woods.

The movie was shot on a handycam obviously but that doesn't means that it's something bad because the direction has an edge and even tries "different" angles. Some humor is involuntary I might add.

Sure, the gore is cheap and the acting atrocious but the movie has a heart and even tries too hard to impress the audience. The American cannibal sub-genre isn't very explored and this is a prime example of how independend and low budget at least tries...

Watch it only if you are a fan of ultra low budget and trash overall.
