Imagine a reality show where the contestants – a succession of unpleasant characters – are eliminated not by standard ejection but by hanging, drowning, strangling, beheading and all manner of murderous methods. Welcome to Camp Dread.
A group of misguided young adults – amongst them killers, blackmailers, sex offenders – have been sent to the camp as part of a new reality show. This is their last chance to avoid prison or rehab and if they avoid elimination they could win $1 million along the way.
Manipulating the contestants is down-at-heel horror director Julian Barrett played by Oscar nominee Eric Roberts, using the same set as his old horror franchise Summer Camp. And as the competition progresses, it becomes more than just a battle to win. It’s a desperate, gut-wrenching fight for survival.
Also starring scream queen Danielle Harris, CAMP DREAD arrives on DVD in the UK on 23rd June 2014.
