BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
Woop, second film of the day, and one that, I am sad to say, again wasn't the best... "Four American counsellors at a European summer camp must deal with the outbreak of a rage-inducing plague that starts in the animals."
I really quite liked the storyline to this, damn, I need to stop saying that - I feel it builds up films too much for me and I am let down by them instead... Anyway, I liked the storyline, and it started very well, nice little blind mans bluff game, that leads you into thinking something horrible might happen... only to safely pull you away and for it all to be alright. That is literally the opening scene and it is good, it gets you right into the action from the start, but that's kind of where it starts to go wrong...
I think the problem with this film is it feels a lot like a few other films, but other films that I find more enjoyable. It feels kind of like The Children, as some of the children in this film turn killer due to a virus, very much like The Children - but The Children is one of my favourite horror films so obviously, I do enjoy that much more than this. Summer Camp also feels like Come out and Play, I feel it's shot in a similar way and it also brings in the element of kids. I also, again feel bad saying this, I feel Come out and Play has more of a tense atmosphere to it, compared to Summer Camp, as Summer Camp doesn't really pull out all the stops when it comes to tension.
There is a fair bit of action in this film, but it doesn't hold the tension that well, meaning, it's entertaining, but it has you nowhere near the edge of your seat at all. Good if you like your action...
Overall, Summer Camp is okay, it's fairly entertaining is quite fast paced, but doesn't have that much of an original storyline or holds the tension. Ballsy ending though - pretty damn dim and depressing. Summer Camp is okay, just okay really...
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
