Bloody Murder 2: Closing Camp (Halloween Camp)

So after recently watching the abysmal Bloody murder one, why would I bother with this second instalment? Well Tiffany Shepis is in this, simple as that. This is set five years after the events of the previous film. Same plot, camp counsellors at a summer camp, regale each other with tales of serial killer Trevor Moorehouse. They decide to play a game of bloody murder. Then slowly they start to disappear one by one. Is Trevor Moorehouse back? This has the same mix of Slasher / murder mystery as part one. But I'm pleased to report that this is very much a step up and far superior sequel. The blood and gore in the first five minutes of this outshine the whole of what red stuff the original had to offer. Superfluous sex & nudity has also been added. Shepis unleashes the "twins" throughout. (Yes I'm a perv) I would also say that the acting is pretty good for a film in this genre. If the first was a rip off of Friday the 13th this one has moments lifted from Scream. Horror movie clichés and rules are discussed. The only black guy even refers to himself as the "token" black guy And the relationship between Katy Woodruff and Tom Mullen's characters are clearly like Sidney and Billy. Although this is a superior sequel, Be in no doubt that this is still an ultra low budget slasher. But a very entertaining one at that. Oh for some reason this film has been called Halloween Camp here in the UK? And it has the stupid tag line 'Jason Vs Trevor' I really have no idea why? The character called Jason is the dead brother of the Katy Woodruff's character and is only seen in a dream. So really has nothing to do with the plot at all. Cash in on Freddy Vs Jason maybe?
