Official synopsis - In 1986, counselors are preparing for the new summer. It’s all fun and games until one of the new counselors goes missing. Now, an evil lurks in the darkness. Is it the camp legend come to life or does someone else have an axe to grind?
1980’s throwback slasher film Bloody Summer Camp has begun filming with Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp) attached. The film, which takes place in 1986 at a summer camp, will follow a group of counselors preparing Camp Trustfall for the new year when one by one they’re stalked and killed by a masked killer dubbed ”Devilface”.
The first official trailer for Bloody Summer Camp was released on December 30th. Currently, Bloody Summer Camp’s final crowdfunding campaign has began Tuesday, January 21st and they have already made it half way to their goal, raising over $5,000 in 5 days.

This time they are shooting for $10,000 with the promise that if they hit that mark, they will bring a second horror celebrity into the film.
Along with bringing back a lot of the previous perks from their last crowdfunder (DVD’s, Blu-Rays, t-shirts, posters, die in the film, be the killer) there is also new perks including a limited run of VHS’s, mugs, pins, water bottles, etc. crowdfunding will run until the end of February and filming picks back up on March 14th and is expected to wrap at the end of May with an expected release date of Dec. 2020.
