Summer Camp

This was great!

Funny, Clever, Entertaining and just overall fun. Shame it wasn't shown on the main screen.

One of the best ones of the fest without a doubt.

This was a hidden gem, really entertaining and put a different spin on the normal horror format. Definitely had the best crowd reaction from the films I saw too. Would have been great as a main screen film.

Enjoyed this a lot. Not quite as much as I expected, but still very good. The guy beside me was flying out of his seat for every jump scare, even though I thought most of them were pretty well signposted. The director was on the same row just one seat away from him, so he was in the best seat ever for the jumpiest audience member. :)

And who doesn't love a magic mushroom rage demon?

As the title may indicate, nothing highly original but a thoroughly entertaining evil dead/cabin fever/rec mashup nonetheless. Deserved a main screen showing (take your pick from any number that it could have replaced!) and the director was a very likeable chap too.

A hidden Gem indeed, I had tried to get a pass holder ticket for this but they were sold out on-line which put me in a tricky spot, I didn't fancy the other options at this time and really didn't know what to do with myself. I left it to fate and a few minutes before it started I checked at the box office for a returned ticket, lady luck smiled kindly on me. (if you missed out always check!)

It was enjoyable, funny and offered a new twist on a very tired sub genre, the sprinkler system at the end cracked me up and the director seemed like a decent chap too as previously mentioned.

One of my favourites and my top recommendation to the guys that spent most of their time in the main screens.
Horror films don`t create fear. They release it...
