When Tracy's nightmares begin to come true as one by one the counselors are murdered. Someone is hunting them through the pitch-black Forest and is determined to kill them all. Written by
Attempting to get over her brother's disappearance, a woman works at the summer camp he disappeared from with a set of counselors closing it down for the season who are slowly killed off one-by-one by a masked madman.
This here turned out to be an above-average slasher if slightly clichéd at times. One of the biggest pluses here is the fact that this one doesn't really skimp around on the gore like its' predecessor, offering up plenty of gory, gruesome deaths like limbs being hacked off, darts impaling in the neck, a running chainsaw into the chest and more, leaving this one much more blood-soaked than expected. Also quite shocking is the fact that this one features a genuine, honest attempt at being suspenseful mixed with the bloodletting, generating some impressive scenes but none more than a shower ambush that's far more carefully constructed than expected and generates an awesome surprise, especially with a clever set-up and eerie lighting that are used to great effect here. That said, there's also some flaws here, mainly in the way the killer here is a joke as he doesn't look that much bigger than the males, is quite lanky in statue making the amount of force required on some kills a little hard to believe and really doesn't do a whole lot to inspire fear or danger from the audience or the victims. As well, the abundance of clichés, from the lone black person among the cast to the group failing to realize the growing disappearing bodies around them and the lack of explanation for why they're there makes this one fall just slightly, but it's still a pretty fun slasher.
Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Full Nudity, and two sex scenes.
