Me before the movie: Another Friday the 13th-like slasher? Oh, give me a break. After the movie: WHAT THE FUCK!? Damn that was...disgusting and took me by surprise.

I find it funny how kids keep dying on this camp but rather than evacuate the area, everyone passes it off as an unfortunate accident and move on with their lives. Nobody cares lol. Like, what the hell? Some people have just died and there might be a murderer in the area, but the campers are like "Well, better tell their parents the kid is dead, I guess, I don't know anymore".

Then there's another abrupt change of gears and you're treated to some quiet moments with Angela, and you start thinking wondering if a pleasant indie drama was spliced onto the insane low-budget mess you'd just been watching. And then there are the killings. And all of that. rolled up into a weird, crazy ball, ends up being quite watchable. But it's the ending - one of the greatest endings in cinematic history - that makes this film a …
