Camp Utopia

by on Jul.26, 2010, under Daily Review

Ratt! What a great band from the 80’s and this is what draws me to this film, front man Steve Pearcy. He’s pretty good too but unfortunately, one of the only highlights of this film.

The film begins with some great re-imagined footage of the summer of Love, a crazy time of freedom, sex and drugs. Tim Bach (Pearcy) is a cult leader who takes a little too much funny stuff, which results in a massacre of his followers. Then we jump to present day. A group of friends go camping, to the same site of the massacre. The murders begin again. Bach’s ghost?

It’s a shame that this film fails as it could have been pretty good. The pace of the film grind to a halt after the first 5 minutes, with a poorly performed script by pretty lame actors. I don’t think it’s their fault really with the blame mainly focused on Director Robert Madero for allowing such a flat performance. The film picks towards the last 20 minutes which is a relief. Sarah Megan White springs to life and gives us a stunning performance. Where was that for the other part of the film?
