Summer School -- Charlie is a teenage horror buff and even runs his own movie review website. He decides to spend his lsst evening before the start of summer school catching up on his movie viewing.

He watches one horror flick after another, his private movie marathon lasting well in to the wee hours of the night. In class the next day, lack of sleep overwhelms Charlie and he nods off. He soon finds himself in a series of all- too realistic nightmares that look an awful lot like his movies.

Plunging in and out of states of consciousness, Charlie is transported from one horrifying scene to the next as he confronts a stead stream of slashers, vampires, monsters, Nazis and satanic cults. His grip on reality loosens as it becomes impossible to tell whether he is awake or asleep. One thing's for sure - Charlie's not going to be looking at horror movies quite the same way ever again.

Did You Know?

A man is seen rating movies he's seen, giving them a B- or C-... but when he comes to a film called "The G.I.", he gives it an A+. This is funny because "The G.I." is the only other Random Creatureface film... so the producers made him give it an A+.See more »

Interesting effort but ultimately flawed, 14 January 2013
Author: GL84 from Los Angeles, Ca

Forced to stay at school during the summer, a student finds himself constantly living out horrific nightmares only to appear back in class each time as though nothing happened, and tries to find a way of ending the cycle.

This was pretty hard to get a handle on, as it's not until the very end that you realize that this is just a never-ending series of nightmares, where waking up in one puts you square in the middle of the next one. This presents some problems in the fact that there's just not a lot beyond this premise to make the film interesting and you have to rely on the creepiness of the dreams to really gather any kind of satisfaction out of the film. Granted, some of the dream segments do get pretty interesting, especially a sequence where he thinks the different attendees with him are part of a cult or a later one where the faculty is really a coven of vampires looking for easy prey and forcing him to slay them, but the brevity and the constant knowing that it's all a dream makes it really hard to get into what's going on. A novel idea and much more ingenious than a normal anthology film, but it's design gives it it's own undoing and really doesn't get much more than just above mediocre.

Rated R: Graphic Violence and Graphic Language.
