DVD review: Bloody Murder 2: Closing Camp (2003)
Trevor Moorhouse returns! Coming to Placid Pines is difficult for Tracy (Katy Woodruff) , who's brother, Jason (Tyler Sedustine), was one of Trevor's victims near the end of the original. When Tracy's nightmares begin to come true as one by one the counselors are murdered. Someone is hunting them through the pitch-black Forest and is determined to kill them all. Bloody Murder 2: Closing Camp is written by John R. Stevensson and directed by Rob Spera. The acting is mediocre but hey what´s new? Decent camera work and editing. The soundtrack is good. The killings are surprisingly graphic, in total contrast to the original this film has gore and brutality, we get legs cut off, a head smashed with a rock, a chainsaw through a stomach, an arrow through a neck, a head split open with a machete and more, the gore fx were nice. There are alot of beautiful girls here, Tiffany Shepis provides all of the film's nudity (in the shower, in a car, in the woods…).
In the UK it is released under the name Halloween Camp.
This review is based on the german region 2 DVD release from Planet Media, it´s uncut and has a english audiotrack available.
Rating: 2½ out of 7. I actually thought Bloody Murder 2: Closing Camp was alright. It´s way better than the original film thanks to a great improvement over its predecessor in the gore and nudity department. Actually it got all the ingredients to make it a good slasher so if you enjoy slasher movies, give it a try
