Storyline

Rebecca is set to spend her first Spring Break home from college with her old high school cheer-leading friends. As luck would have it, the group of six sexy girls have been granted the usage of a rental property in the Florida coastal town of Manatee Creek. However, they are soon to find that their vacation may be anything but... Just down the road, in Daytona Beach; "Crazy Girls Unlimited" - a company famous for it's drunken topless DVD releases - had been throwing a event for their latest video series. However, the shoot ended early when a killer, complete with medieval weaponry, showed up to end the festivities. Unaware of what has transpired at the "Crazy Girls" party, Rebecca and her friends decide to throw a Spring Break Free-For-All -- But the girls get more than they bargained for when one-by-one the party-goers disappear. It seems an uninvited stranger has been literally cutting through the guest list - straight from the party in Daytona. Written by Meghan T. Jones

Girls Gone Campy...
23 April 2013 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Caught this one on Netflix and was more than pleasantly surprised. However - based upon the divided love-it-or-hate-it comments on there and the low rating on here - it's a shame to see today's generation can't seem to have fun with the type of movies I grew up on. This is a nice throwback to stuff like the "Sorority House Massacre" series - with lots of in-jokes (check out the names from "Saved By the Bell" - or a direct reference to "Halloween" in the first pool scene - or even Linnea Quigley applying make-up ala "Night of the Demons"). This movie delivers lots of cheesy gore effects (I mean that in the best possible way) - and has a great B movie cast full of horror veterans (B and C grade); washed up celebrities and up-and coming names from bigger flicks (I knew I recognized the dumb girl of the group - she had a substantial role in "Sex Drive"). Even the drummer from Iron Maiden shows up to sing country (stay through the closing credits).

Scrolling through reviews on here - I saw one person complain this movie was intentionally bad - and would have been better played straight. I couldn't agree less. Most of the films this is throwing back to did the same thing; so this keeps the general tone to that of other camp classics. Good news is - the production team actually worked on making a nice looking movie - with a moving camera and solid sound mix - so; unlike most low-budget dreck I weed through - the production values add as opposed to detract from the end product.

If you like stuff with campy dialog; exploitive nudity and buckets of over-the-top gore - definitely check this out. If you don't - move on.

On a side note - the reason for such a high rating are for three scenes in particular. One involves the midget from Howard Stern - the other is a nice joke on MC Hammer during the bar sequence - and the biggest of all is how the killer is taken down. These moments alone are B movie gold and worthy of a replay.

The biggest negative is the film sinks a bit under it's own length - showing that sometimes there is too much of a good thing - but aside from this little caveat - here's a B movie treasure that delivers.
