Plot – Spoilers:
Volleyball girls who aren’t very good, are headed to entertain Mormons in Utah but take a detour through Camp Blood.
This one begins like most in the series – shit music and a girl awkwardly running to her end. But the girls here are more prone to show skin and the killer clown has a utilitarian mask with a serpentine tongue that his mom likes to suck on. There’s also a great song by a tied-up girl to an older lady baring her tits:
I put on my gloves and took off my mitts,
I made up this song with all of my wits,
It gives this milf lady real fits,
Cuz it’s all about her beautiful tits!
This series never end?
Genocide for all Americans
Genocide for all Jews
Putin will prevail.
I have finally finished the Camp Blood Challenge and watched all 11 of the Camp Blood films. My ratings for them all are as follows:
-Camp Blood (2000) (2/10)
-Camp Blood 2 (2000) (2/10)
-Camp Blood: Within the Woods (2005)
-Camp Blood: First Slaughter (2014) (1/10)
-Camp Blood 4 (2016) (1/10)
-Camp Blood 5 (2016) (0/10)
-Camp Blood 666 (2016) (3/10)
-It Kills: Camp Blood 7 (2017) (2/10)
-Ghost of Camp Blood (2018) (0/10)
-Camp Blood 8 (2020) (2/10)
-Children of Camp Blood (2020) (2/10)
-The original Brad Sykes trilogy are the best of the series. Yes they’re awfully produced Z movies, but you can at least tell that he put his heart into making them. Further, the production quality gets better with each film.
-The Dustin Ferguson entries (no. 5 & 6) are the worst of the bunch. He is a serial plagiarizer and shows entire lengthy sequences of previous films (or other people’s non-Camp Blood films) to where he only has to film a few minutes of his own original footage. Both films only contain approximately 15 minutes of original footage (aside from footage of people aimlessly walking around town).
-Mark Polonia’s entries (no. 4, 8-9, 11) are incredibly generic and boring. He likes to plagiarize his own previous material in the form of dreams and flashbacks to fill time, sometimes showing the same clip multiple times in the same movie. Once he actually gets going, he makes incredibly generic and forgettable films.
-Ted Moehring’s entry (no. 7) is admirable for trying something different, as well as for attempting to add lore to the franchise. However, the film is still poorly made and the lore doesn’t match with the original spirit of the franchise (ex. Supernatural vs. familial revenge).
-Dennis Devine’s entry (no. 10) is also admirable for trying something different, but ends up being both tonally dissimilar to the franchise (more Leatherface than Jason) as well as having incredibly cringy humor and gross incest themes.
Overall: The first three films are fine as no-budget, direct-to-video Z-movies where the director obviously had passion but no budget. Avoid Ferguson like the plague unless you’re looking for a bad time. Polonia is not much better and has a lot of repetition and plagiarism. Moehring and Devine are worth the watch if you’re extremely bored and don’t mind the poor production quality and bad/cringey acting.
