you were to go to K-Mart and purchase a Halloween mask, some fake
blood, and were able to find a few teenagers to be in a movie - you
can make this film too. Truly defining backyard filmmaking is Camp
Blood: First Slaughter. While not really innovative or
particularly well made, the film succeeds with cheesy gags and a few
candid performances. Though its riff on Friday The 13th is a
little too literal, it's almost a wonder that this movie got released
on home video. However, this is the third movie in the low budget
franchise and employs almost every tired gimmick there is: found
footage, not so great looking special effects, and a generic killer
in a clown mask as the threat.
group of students on a class assignment travel to the infamous Camp
Blood woods in the hopes of debunking a local legend. Despite
warnings from locals, they continue on and find out that the Camp
Blood Killer may be more than simply myth. Real terror awaits, and
this assignment could be their last!
1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen standard definition presentation
captures the film in low quality as it was filmed with the color
saturation lacking and some downright distracting chromatic
aberration in the outdoor scenes. As for the audio, the lossy Dolby
Digital 2.0 Stereo track is similarly on the cheap with some scenes
having higher music levels than audio.
extras are on the disc.
