DVD review: Bloody Bloody Bible Camp (2011)
First I´d like to thank Vito Trabucco for sending me the screener, which this review is based on.
In 1977 a group of young, horny, out of control Christians are spending a fun filled weekend at the Happy Day Bible Camp. One by one these youthful sinners pay a bloody penance for their sinful acts. Several years later, in 1984, a church group under the guidance of Father Richard Cummings (Reggie Bannister) pays a visit to the camp, with the intent of acquiring it for God’s work. They ignore the warnings from the local folk of the grizzly murders that took place seven years prior.
Bloody Bloody Bible Camp is written by Shelby McIntyre and Vito Trabucco who also directs the film which creates that 80's retro feel as we get gratuitous nudity, tasteless situations, lack of logic and gore. There is lots of fun dialogue and over the top humor. Reggie Bannister, who also is one of the producers, is great as Father Richard Cummings and it´s quite obvious that the cast and crew had a good time making the movie. Overall the acting is fine. On technical side it´s well shot, edited and there is good lighting and sound. Gorehounds might like to know that the gore is practical effects created by Oddtopsy FX.
Coming soon late 2012 on DVD & Blu Ray.
Rating: 6 out of 7. Bloody Bloody Bible Camp is highly entertaining and is worth a look, the combination of horror and comedy is difficult but Bloody Bloody Bible Camp succeeds in doing it, but keep in mind this is mainly comedy with a added splice of horror and gore.
