As far as cheap shot-on-video horror films go, CAMP BLOOD is very much of a muchness. It offers absolutely nothing that wasn't already done to death by other slasher films in the 1980s; the story of a killer wearing a clown mask stalking the woods and killing teenagers is completely predictable and everything that happens is long telegraphed in advance. Die-hard horror fans will be put off by the absence of any special effects and the cheesy, orange-looking blood, and cinema fans will be repulsed by the zero-level production values and less-than-impressive talents of the amateur dramatic student cast.
However is it the worst film I've ever seen? No, far from it. Films like this, which rip-off literally dozens of other efforts that have come previously, occupy their own notch on the scale of cinematic badness, just above even-worse outings like the deliberately puerile dreck that is LESBIAN VAMPIRE KILLERS. Yes, I'd still rather watch CAMP BLOOD again – with all its raw, inevitably lacking running-through-the-woods type antics – than more expensive, studio-made fare that has no excuse to get it so wrong.
Out and about on a camping trip in the woods without a care in the world, four campers found themselves in an unknown world. With the death of their guide and at the mercy of a cold blooded killer, the trip of fun in the sun soon took a wrong turn. With friends slowly disappearing, so does the chance of getting out alive. —willwinuk
