Lauren Currie Lewis,
Set in the late 70s, this gritty and twisted film taps the physical and mental underpinnings of the meaning of the word "brother" in a way reminiscent of the best of late 70s grindhouse and early 80s slashers.
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
Produced cheaply by people who "know" slasher fans are stupid
Too many reviews on the IMDb claim the film (more often now video) they just saw is the worst film ever made. If there is any justice left this video ( and not for one moment will you not believe it is anything other than a shot on video) will garner new worst film ever reviews. But hey the first people to write reviews of it loved it. Well fortunately most films get watched by more people than made them,though the only reason to sit through this is if you helped make it.
There's almost no point to talking about what's bad about it. Everything is.
But what do slasher fans expect? Let's run it down.
Nudity===no none there other than some shirtless men in tight short shorts--wonder what that's all about?
Gore? Mostly the dribble candy looking blood over an actors skin. Oh, one early kill has the dead woman blinking. More stranglings than slashings and the killer usually arrows instead of a knife. It's pretty much all of the, "Oh I'm pretending I'm being killed" variety. Like you'd see from a bunch of nine-year-olds playing Cowboys and Indians in their back yard with some food coloring for blood.
Music? Well the only decent thing in the movie is the music score, that claims and might actually have some real instruments used. Unfortunately much of the music is god awful pseudo 80's songs that are bad and don't sound like 80's either.
Acting? Well you don't expect acting in a slasher film but I mean really.
The 80's? Well that era for slasher films this one tries for, but the wardrobe isn't consistent, the valley girl is really a few years too early to be in the film and has too many ear rings. The shot on video nature makes it all look cheaper than even the cheapest slasher films of that era. There's no suspense or nastiness here, the set ups for the kills are pretty weak and or silly.
Comedy? Well no you don't expect that in a slasher film, but don't worry unless you think bad actors reciting lines you'll recognize from better movies is funny, you won't have comedy getting in the way of the film. The black chick character says she just ate so much her t**t is going to explode. I guess that counts for something?
Unique killer gimmick? Do sort of loose fitting yellow work gloves terrify you? Well they won't after you see this movie so don't be afraid to keep your eyes open. Even if you are afraid of sort of loose fitting yellow work gloves watching this movie will cure you.
Something like taking their cheapo video camera and badly recorded sound away from these people so they never make another "movie" again.
The central idea (sort of a time travel thing) is really badly done so they can't take credit for that.
All kidding aside this is trash made by people who don't know how to make a movie and don't care about the movie they made. Annoying video hissing sound pops in and out with the camera edits, just like it does in your own home movies. Wow, that's great. Greenish video skin tones that don't match the shots around them, just like it does in your own home movies. Wow, how do they do that? Brightly illuminated by bright white light night scenes, just like when you take your light on top of your video camera and turn it on. Wow, why watch these people do this when you can already make a movie will all the excitement and skill that these people are vomiting up all over you. Talent aside, these are basic basic technical requirements that no one who made or released this film gave a damn about. Why, because they think slash fans are too stupid to care.
Hire the composer of the score, send the rest of the people involved in this film onto the Titanic with third class tickets and glory in the thought of them freezing painfully to death on a moonless night long long ago, and try to forget you ever saw this thing. Oh and while you imagine them freezing to death imagine the juries at the film festivals that this film touts on its box being set on fire as their eyes are eaten out by fire ants.
And please note I never said it was the worst film I'd ever seen, but I hope other reviews do. Not that you should believe them usually, because not every low budget shot on video film is this bad.
