Pitch A Tent At Camp Dread
Earlier today Bloody Disgusting posted an exclusive first look at the DVD cover for the upcoming film Camp Dread with Eric Roberts, Danielle Harris and Felissa Rose. The cover art isn't particularly groundbreaking, but the premise actually sounds really cool:
“The “Summer Camp” horror trilogy was one of the most popular franchises of the 1980s. However, the decade ended and so did director Julian Barrett’s career. Now Barrett plans to resurrect his gory series via a modern reboot patterned after reality filmmaking. With his former leading lady and an eclectic group of 10 young “contestants,” Barrett returns to the same locale where his old splatter-fests were filmed. When one of the campers is found savagely murdered, they realize there’s more at stake than just fame and fortune. Each of them is in a fight for their lives as they realize summer is over – forever.”
I'm a sucker for any kind of film within a film scene. A movie scene filmed by characters in a movie like The Mutants of 2051 AD from Strange Brew, or an entire movie that takes place behind the scenes of a movie like Day for Night or Living In Oblivion, I eat stuff like that right up so Camp Dread sounds like something I'll really enjoy.
We'll be able to check this one out April 15th. For now, here's an exclusive shot from Dread Central of Danielle Harris as the cutest cop since Edwina 'Ed' McDunnough:
