Lauren Currie Lewis,
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
Just received the special edition of CAMP DAZE with the bonus disc in the mail and IT IS AWESOME! Some great behind the scenes footage.
The movie itself is fun, exciting and (need I mention) bloody. I first learned about it on FANGORIA.com and have been waiting for it to come out. I'll be attending the NY screening in October, but couldn't wait that long to see it. I agree with some of the postings that's a bit long, it still keeps you entertained. I read one that said it was too much like Friday the 13th, but I disagree. I actually watched Friday part 1 on the IFC channel last night and CAMP DAZE is completely different. Some of the deaths are similar to Friday's but according to the director, they wanted to pay homage to it. CD's story was far more clever. It felt like a cross between The Burning and Scream. I laughed quite a few times and even found myself getting antsy (which I don't normally do when I'm watching a horror movie). Especially the scene with Jon Flemming in the shower. That was a bloody clever scene.
This is the type of film that pays homage to the early 80's horror flicks in theme only. As for the rest of the film as a whole, it clearly stands on its own two blood soaked feet. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to see a fun, gory, bloody, creepy, who-done-it horror film.
