review by
Mike Haberfelner

It's end of the year, and to save her handful of problem students from flunking, teacher Jessica (Felissa Rose) suggests a camping trip to the ominous Camp Twilight, scene of a brutal murder 30 years ago, for credit - and not really having much choice, students Maria (Brooklyn Haley), Johnny (Cougar MacDowall), Kevin (Harris Sebastian), Danny (Dondre Tuck), Sydney (Hayleigh Hopkins) and Tory (Angela Gluchowski) agree to it disapprovingly, and their disapproval only mounts when they learn it will be an electronics-free weekend. On the other hand of course, it's three boys and three girls on the trip, and you know what that might lead to - and it's really Jessica who sets a bad example here, getting it on with principal Warner (Barry Jay Minoff), a married man, while accompanying teacher Miss Monique (Tracy Lear) just oozes sex appeal, something only augmented by the low-cut dresses she tends to wear. However, all of a sudden, she's gone. Soon enough, Sydney is as well. and when she turns up again, she's dead. And from here it's not long before it becomes obvious there's a masked killer on the loose on the premises, and he just kills off people left and right, starting with the bumbling rangers (Steven Chase, Dave Sheridan) who were to protect the kids and their teachers. And now Jessica and principal Warner have their hands full trying to keep the situation under control, but the killer just butchers people left and right, until it's Maria and Johnny as the last two standing - and they're in for a nasty surprise ...

It's guest stars galore here, with Linnea Quigley as one of the killer's victims, Camille Keaton and Vernon Wells as D.A. and detective on the case, respectively, Jessica Cameron as principal Warner's bitchy wife, and Chalet Lizette Brannan as young Jessica.

 

So ok, this is a film that is definitely not re-inventing the wheel, and it's obvious it has never set out to - basically it's a slasher movie that goes out of its way to tick all the boxes. That doesn't mean it can't be fun though, and Camp Twilight really is, as it's carried by a fine cast of characters who really put colour to the proceedings and work well as an ensemble, there's plenty of humour that goes well with the horror and doesn't feel like taking cheap shots at the genre, and even if the final resolution doesn't come quite as surprising as intended, it's well executed - as is the whole movie, amounting to some good genre fun.
