Tales for the Campfire

review by
Mike Haberfelner

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 ago ...
  • 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!
