Audience Reviews for Summer Camp Nightmare

Lord of the Flies gets a campground setting and an anti authoritarian streak to it. I enjoyed it as a kid, but it's still a low budget affair that is far from essential viewing. It is fun to see former Chicago Cub Chuck Connors as the camp director, whose character is not long for this Earth.

Cheesy 80s movie, but I loved it as a kid! Now, having watched good movies, I realize it was such a waste of time, but hey, I enjoyed it then! I love one song in the soundtrack, which I can't find anywhere...I'd pay anything to have that song!!!!!!
