A group of kids break down while driving down a remote forest road. After a disturbing night alone in the woods, they stumble upon Camp Hiawatha in full swing and packed with seemingly happy teenagers. However, the teens and the camp itself are strangely trapped back in 1981. The clothes, the music, the hair, and the attitudes are 24 years back in time. The campers are forced to relive the same day and night over and over again. The night when a silent killer stalked the camp silencing campers and counselors one by one. The kids from the present struggle to understand and help the teens from 1981 break free of the curse. Working together both time-periods begin to learn about the different worlds from which they come and what it will take for all of them to survive. Written by
I had to give this movie 4 out of 10 because its not total crap as many are saying. There are some very good things here, but unfortunately its lost under a lot of %$#@! It has a promising start that is a homage to the original 'Friday the 13th'. Two lovers wander into the woods for some love. The acting and shooting here is decent. Hurt by cheesy scripting, the performers at least seem to be trying. Not really scary, but old school horror fans will smile at this bit. However, from here it is all downhill.
As we get into the film, it gets marred with a convoluted plot about time travel, which probably sounded good on paper, but doesn't come off well on screen. The acting takes a nose dive, as does the scripting. In fact most of the leads in this movie are terrible actors that look like gay porn stars. The supporting stars seem to be much better overall.The crazy fat girl seems to have the most talent of the bunch. The special effects are pretty bad and the score is awful.
You can see hints of a good film in here, and its really a shame. I know horror doesn't have to have Al Pacino, but if they casted for talent before model 'stud' looks and did another draft on the script they may have had something here.
