Camp Fever

Holy crap, talk about judging a book by its title.

I went into this movie 100% cold. I knew nothing about it other than the title and I thought I knew it all. I hadn't watched a trailer, read a blurb or even seen a poster. What I thought I read into the name was going to be a cheap, independent take on the killer stalking camp counselors subgenre, à la Friday the 13th…a personal favorite of mine: the slasher flick.

Before I go further, it's best you do the same as me. SEE IT before you read anything about it. Go in as cold as I did. Heck, I just now stopped this review and watched the official trailer. Boy! did that ruin a ton of surprises and twists. Not everything, but you know what kind of movie this is and it was fun to learn on your own from the beginning.

Suffice to say, I hesitate to NOT give this a perfect rating. It was absolutely one of the most effective, scary, original, tight and inventive horror movies I've seen in probably a good couple of years. I loved the rules it came up with, the acting was believable and the pacing and continuous flow was near perfect. It didn't settle on just one direction; it kept reinventing itself.

It gives some damn good red herrings in the opening, which I loved and it does enough foreshadowing to enjoy the inevitable scenes, even if they're predictable.

I was shocked about both my experience going in cold and expecting so little as I was when I enjoyed the movie itself. I do like a lot of horror films and 50/50 independent films, but every once in a while an independent horror flick just blows me and my expectations out of the water. Definitely see this movie.

***

Final thoughts: If you're reading this on IMDb, most likely you've seen at very least the poster. Shame. Even that gives too much away. Luckily, I found the perfect, nondescript, albeit official poster to share with my review on Facebook. Hopefully, you'll take my warning (don't read/see anything about this before viewing it whole) and just see it. And have fun. It's Summer Camp, after all. Right?
