Really Awful Movies: Ep 389 – Summer Camp Nightmare



On today’s episode of the podcast, Summer Camp Nightmare. Don’t be fooled, folks. This is not a stalk-and-slash 80s horror.

In fact, it’s got smarts. There’s a wack of political/historical context, and it punches above its weight for what you’d expect from a small, largely overlooked film.

A bunch of counsellors in training (CITs) and the usual cadre of summer camp wimps, jocks, misfits and troublemakers, attend a summer camp. And after some time, the kids take umbrage with their overlords and turn the tables on ’em.

And bonus. Chuck Connors! The western star, and also the lead in Tourist Trap, plays the disciplinarian summer camp head.
