Critic Reviews for Camp Hell (Camp Hope)
Budgetary limitations, a plodding script, ropey visual effects and an excruciating score undercut a heartfelt cautionary tale about a confused teenager wrestling with his religious faith and the dogmatism of his overzealous elders.
With little in the way of shocks or surprises, writer/director George VanBuskirk fashions a lightweight drama that ponders religious fanaticism but never seems sure of its message.
An unexpected and individual take on sin and the devil by a director who - shock horror - actually has something to say.
Audience Reviews for Camp Hell (Camp Hope)
Camp Hell lies to you before you've even pressed play. Normally that's the sort of thing I can forgive pretty easily, but not when the film we get instead is unintelligible boring trash.
What the fuck did I just watch? The only scary thing about this film is that there are really religious freaks out there, who are willing to send their kids to camps like this. The producers of this movie must have known how awful it was, because they put a big picture of "The Social Network Guy," Jesse Eisenberg on the cover, and list him as the star, when he's in the movie for all of 2 minutes. The star is Will Denton, who you may remember from the short lived TV series, Kidnapped. He was pretty good, so was Gossip Girls, Connor Paolo. It's too bad they didn't have an actual script to work with. It really just blows my mind that things like this get made. No one in their right mind would consider this movie worth their time.
