Critic Reviews for Camp Hell (Camp Hope)

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

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.

Time Out
Top Critic

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.

Radio Times

An unexpected and individual take on sin and the devil by a director who - shock horror - actually has something to say.

Little White Lies

The grounded approach and honest performances are provocative and unsettling. As is the fact that it's based on a true story.

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.

Horror lol maybe for the religious nuts i mean they have no real scares and most of the film is just the Church Father(Bruce Davison) talking bout sin and such

The most frightening feature of Camp Hell is the fact that the creators used Jesse Eisenberg's face (more than laughable considering his small "role"/cameo) on the front cover in Redbox to promote the film. Although a bit campy (no pun intended) at times, this movie provides a detail look at how certain christian camps take the bible and its teachings quite literaly, much to the dismay of the kids attending. The horror aspect of the film is found more evident in the brutality of how these camps are run, rather than the quick film shots of some sort of elusive demon that haunts the main character along with the rest of the camp. The writers should have focused more on the realistic haunting theme of the camp setup itself rather than try to work in some irrelevant demonic creature to try to get its official stamp as a "horror" flick. I think that doing so would have produced a much more rent worthy film.
