Tales for the Campfire
It's spooky story time again as five friends (Mike Moshman, Daniel
Steir, Seth Koozer, Stephanie Eads, Shawn Schweitzer) sit down around a
campfire to scare one another shitless:
- There's the story of the man (Jason Paul) who finds a zit on his
cheek one morning that just keeps growing and growing until it
explodes and ...
- A guy (Clint Beaver) picks up a hitchhiker (Schuylar Craig) and
takes her home - but when he finds she has forgotten something in his
car and wants to return it, he has to find out she has died 30 years
- A mother (Debra Lamb) calls upon the Devil to return her deceased
daughter (Emily Smith) - it works, but at the same time, the mother
might get more than she has bargained for ...
- Jennii (Jennii Caroline) spends Christmas Eve alone despite her best
friend's (Breana Mitchell) throwing a party. Problem is, she has been
treated for paranoia, a condition that's presently kreeping up again -
though paranoia's not always a guarantee that whatever happens is only
in your head ...
- In some small town in the middle of nowhere, a maniac's on the
loose, but that doesn't keep our heroine (Donna Hamblin) from going
shopping at night - but then she finds herself followed home by a guy
(Luc Bernier) with a very special agenda ...
Only when all the stories are told do our five storytellers realize
they've lit their campfire in nightmare country ...
Tales for the Campfire is a rather charming little horror
anthology very much in the tradition of yesteryear's anthologies where a
handful of yarns from different corners of the genre are spun and are held
together by a framing story that has its own twist. And what makes this
one especially fun is that director Dustin Ferguson has chosen a different
directorial approach for each of the episodes, from subtle to all-out, and
has really made it his priority to get the fun horror can provide at the
best of times across to the audience!
