Storyline

Two teens on their way to a backwoods party come across a beautiful young woman having car trouble. Their search for help only gets them lost, deep in the woods, where they meet Forest Ranger Bill with a penchant for scary stories. The campfire flickers long into the night as the ranger uses words to weave his tapestry of terror, filling their young minds with a host of horrific images that will be burned into your consciousness long after the fire's last embers have gone out. Insane doctors, Indian ghosts, bad drugs, a deranged handyman with shiny new shears - all that and more awaits anyone brave enough to stay until sunrise... if you live that long! Written by Schleppy

I really didn't think it was that bad.
16 January 2003 | by (Chicagooooooo) – See all my reviews

Movies like CREEPSHOW 2 were just not good movies, but at least they were fun gore fests. Well, CAMPFIRE STORIES is a much better version of it. I love low-budget horror films, and I truly think that some of the lower budget horror films are actually some of the creepier ones, this film was not that bad in my opinion.

There were not very many authentic scares and that acting was nothing to brag about, but the acting was believable enough. It is far better than some of the other crap films I have seen (BLOODY MURDER for example). There are not much usages of special effects or much blood or gore for that matter, and I think that is one of the things that adds to the creepiness of this film.

The "Ranger Bill" character was pretty laughable, but otherwise I thought CAMPFIRE STORIES was decent enough. Not the typical story of serial killer slaughters people, people get naked, people get killed, etc. This film was different. Very low-budget, but good to watch one a dark night when you're all alone. Recommendations include CREEPSHOW 2, THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT and BLOODY MURDER. Give this film a try when you have nothing better to do.....4/5.
