Because he was stupid enough to punch the mentally challenged brother
(Darren Krauza) of the chief of police (Keith Bush), egotistical and
hyperactive halfwit Caesar (Douglas Campfield) finds himself on the run
... and since running alone is no fun, he has brought along his lazy and
slow but mild-mannered halfbrother Otto (Paul Chomicki), who has the
ability to fall in love with every woman who as much as talks to him.
to a dubious job counselor (Joe Estevez), Caesar and Otto eventually find
themselves jobs as camp counselors of Camp Sunsmile, a summer camp
suspicously devoid of children. All the other counselors at Camp Sunsmile
seem to be social outcasts of one sort or another, so Caesar and Otto
should fit right in for a change. Before long, Caesar and Otto's dad
(Scott Aguilar) shows up out of nowhere, claiming that he just wants to
spend some time with his sons - but it soon becomes clear he's a man on
the run in need for a hideout as well, and even at the camp he can't
resist the temptation of trying to rob the other counselors' tents - but
with little success.
Now since the relationship of Caesar and Otto is a
bit on the strained side, this is bad news, but not half as bad as the
fact that there's apparently a killer loose on the premises, a killer who
brutally kills off the counselors one by one.
But who could the killer
Everybody's money is on overly cool and unapproachable Carrie
(Felissa Rose, spoofing her role from Sleepaway Camp more than a
bit), but there's nothing but her attitude to connect her to the murders.
Fortunately, the camp's head Jerry (Ken MacFarlane) and the resident nurse
Helen (Robin Ritter), whom Otto has long fallen in love with, have taken
care of the situation. Then though dad disappears ...

Above everything else, Caesar and Otto's
Summer Camp Massacre is one thing: Silly - silly in the tradition of Abbott
and Costello or the Three
Stooges, that is, inasmuch as this movie sends two
well-defined comic characters into a series of predetermined
(genre-)situations to hilarious results. What makes this film work so well
though is that writer/director Dave Campfield doesn't only understand his
characters but also the slasher genre, especially of the old school
variety, so he confidently plays with genre mechanics, and he understands
the silly humour that carries his film and thus doesn't even once resort
to fart jokes - which is something I at least cannot praise him enough
In all a pretty funny film - that's probably best watched with a
few mates and a few beers!
