Summer Camp film review. Now streaming in the UK, with a DVD release date of the 10th April 2017.

Summer Camp plot summary;
A bunch of four  American students volunteer to take over a Summer Camp in Spain for the holidays, preparing for the arrival of the children. Unfortunately they become ill with a viral outbreak that leads them into a blood killing rage. From the original director of REC and the producers of The Conjuring, we have a truly enjoyable, violent film, imagine 28 Days later meets Cabin In The Woods.
A film that is a master of misdirection, like the film I saw recently They're Watching, where you think it is a typical locals vs outsiders, and the ending turned out to be something different, well this film uses the same misdirection. Where as a viewer you are led to believe these American Camp volunteers  at this remote summer camp in Spain, waiting on the arrival of children are already in danger from travellers camping on the same summer camp site,carrying knives, and being intimidating, it is at this point where the story goes into a completely different direction.

In a  film that if I said too much would spoil the movie, it is extremely smart,taking the viewer one way,then going a completely different way.
Using scientific and believable reasons why strange things suddenly starts happening to the young counselors is why this film is so damm fresh. It really is very hard to review a film without giving any of the main plot or twist away,all I can say it is one of the cleverest films I have seen in ages,and proving that Rec wasn't just a fluke but the director has made one of the scariest,claustrophobic films I have seen in ages,with scenes that are terrifying,with absolutely fantastic performances from the young actors involved. Starring Jocelin Donahue as Christy who you have seen recently in the anthology movie Holidays,and more famous in the film House Of The Devil, Maiara Walsh as Michelle (Zombieland),Diego Boneta as Will (Rock Of Ages and Mean Girls 2) Andres Velencoso as Antonio ( Fin, or The End).
The cast was really good in this with  no annoying characters, with some really good gore scenes to keep most gore hounds happy, with one of the best endings I have seen in quite a while.
Can I recommend this film, well yes I can, a very clever take on what has been an outbreak literally of viral type movies, with this keeping you guessing, and on your toes, as  it changes direction frequently,a fantastic really scary film,that is really,really bloody good horror at its best.
4/5****

Handjob cabin, is certainly not a real film, but is a fun, rude trailer, fan made by Bennet Silverman about a randy female ghost intent on jerking men into the afterlife. Obviously Cumming Soon.

Is Signs a greater masterpiece than previously thought. Is M Night Shyamalan's film about Demons rather than Aliens and we have been watching the film wrong and assuming the Alien invasion rather than an apocalyptic Demonic invasion of Earth instead.
