The first trailer for director Harrison Smith’s Camp Dread has arrived, and it is full of comedy, violence and gruesome horror, with plenty of teasing nudity to wet the appetites of even the casual horror fan.
Add to this the always excellent Eric Roberts, and Scream Queen Danielle Harris, and you have a rather cool looking new horror. Check out the trailer and poster below.
Written and directed by Harrison Smith, Camp Dread’s cast includes Eric Roberts, Danielle Harris, Kyle Patrick Brennan, Ashley Caspermeyer, Nicole Cinaglia, Apryl Prowell, Brian Gallagher and Gnomi Gre.
The “Summer Camp” horror trilogy was one of the most popular franchises of the 1980s. However, the decade ended and so did director/writer Julian Barrett’s career. Now Barrett has a plan to resurrect “Summer Camp” in a modern reboot that entails using a reality show as its template and source of fundraising. Should it succeed Barrett would once again be at the helm. Bringing together an eclectic group of young “contestants” as well as his former stars Rachel Steele and John Hill, Barrett seems to have put together a sure fire recipe for success. Then people start dying. For real. And “elimination” takes on a whole new meaning as “Dead.tv” clearly shows the slasher film has grown up.
