DVD Review: CAESAR & OTTO'S SUMMER CAMP MASSACRE (2009)

CAESAR & OTTO'S SUMMER CAMP MASSACRE was written and directed by Dave Campfield and is distributed by Fourth Horizon Cinema. Campfield also co-stars in the film as Caesar. This is a sequel to CAESAR AND OTTO (2008), but you do not have to have seen that film to enjoy this one. Here is the basic plot synopsis from the official website:

After punching out the police chief's mentally challenged brother, an effete tough guy, Caesar, is on the run.
Together, he and his slovenly half brother, Otto, take on new identities as counselors at the strangely vacant Camp Sunsmile.
The would-be summer camp has attracted a motley crew of Hollywood outcasts, all with something to hide. But when the mysterious Carrie (Felissa Rose, star of Sleepaway Camp) shows up, counselors begin disappearing one by one.
Soon, Caesar and Otto find themselves at the edge of a summer camp killer's blade as they run, duck, and swoosh for their lives!


This film if definitely more comedy than Horror, but has a good Horror plot and a surprisingly good amount of gore for a Horror/Comedy film. Caesar and Otto, played by Dave Campfield and Paul Chomicki, are a fun duo to watch. Dave Campfield is especially fun to watch. His acting style is so different, that it is almost annoying at first, but it grows on you really quick and you will end up getting most of your laughs from his character. The film also co-stars Felissa Rose, who played Angela in the 1983 horror classic, SLEEPAWAY CAMP. It was great seeing her get back to here summer camp roots!

The film was shot in just 10 days on a very low budget. There are no elaborate set pieces or anything, but what the movie lacks in production value, it more than makes up for in just pure fun. This movie is proof you don't have to have big a big budget to make a very enjoyable film. This film is just fun, plain and simple, which is something that a lot of movies that come out these days fail to achieve.
