review by
Mike Haberfelner

5 boys go on a camping trip and tell scary stories around a campfire. Can the boys handle stories of werewolves, balloons, and a DVD store owner?

Five boys (Zach Waterbury, Jovanny Ortiz, Noah Kenyon, Grant Guyton, Matthew Mark Hunter) are out camping, and to pass the time around the campfire, they start telling each other scary stories - as you do of course:

  • Justice (Harley Kasper) and Lili (Kirizma Cieplinski) go on a picnic, despite a werewolf roaming the neighbourhood. But the creature might be closer to home than either of them realize ...
  • It's young Juliet's (Michelina Sajovie) birthday, but her mom's (Jennifer Brown) is more interested in spenmding time with her abusive boyfriend (Phil High) than being there for her daughter, so it's up to Juliet's sister Rebecca to put up a little party. Later that night, Paul comes by, drunk and with violence on his mind - but he's attacked by Juliet's birthday balloons ...
  •  Being forced to work the graveyard shift at the videostore freaks Brett (John Polace) out a bit - to the point where he kills a customer. But one kill only leads to another.

Thing is, all these stories don't exactly bring out the best in the boys - not by a longshot ...


Ok, so this one was made on the cheap, and the lack of funds shows in places, but at the same time, the movie is very good at creating a 1980s direct-to-video feel, in both stories and looks, and lots of imagination did actually go into the separate segments to not make them play like any other genre story but present the audience with something more original. And the outcome is just a fun little genre piece!
