Camp Fear (1991)

Title: Camp Fear
There Will Be Sleeping Bags, Campfires Songs, S'mores... And Human Sacrifice!

CinemaBandits Review: I attended some pretty bad camps when I was a boy. At band camp I didn't shower for 8 days. At computer camp I returned with some new programming skills and a parasite.

But none of that compares to Camp Fear.

How about biker gangs? Or Stonehenge? Or time-traveling giants? Or aquatic dinosaurs? Or virgin sacrifices?

It all starts out innocently enough. A professor takes his class of 18 year old girls to the woods for a weekend slumber party. He doesn't invite any of the boys... just the lingerie-clad girls. What could be more innocent than that?

They all go out to the club and get drunk the night before. And it all goes south from there. It starts to rain. The bridge to the mountain goes out. A biker gang buys up all the beer at the convenience store. They can't find the lake. They lose their shoes.

Oh... and their virgin friend gets sacrificed by Druids to halt the end of the world.

My friend Richie dropped his trumpet in his plate of spaghetti and kept blowing out chunks of tomato for the rest of the summer. Although I'm willing to bet everything I own he was a virgin, at least he's still alive.

Everyone seems rather okay with the fact that it only took sacrifices of a few friends to save planet Earth. Teenagers can be rather cliquey sometimes.

However, the film does end on a happy note though. The town's lovable drunk gets eaten alive by the Loch Ness Monster.
