Bloody Murder 2: Closing Camp

April 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 193

Bloody Murder 2: Closing Camp is a 2003 slasher film distributed by Mainline Releasing.It stars Katy Woodruff as Tracy, Amanda Magarian as Sofie, Kelly Gunning as Mike, Tiffany Shepis as Angela, and Arthur Benjamin as Rick.John Stevenson is the writer.The director is Rob Spera.

The story takes place five years after the events of Bloody Murder.Summer is over and the camp counselors are preparing Camp Placid Pines for winter.One of the counselors, Tracy, had an older brother named Jason who disappeared in the previous film.He is believed to have been a victim of local legend Trevor Moorehouse, a former camper who was badly injured during a prank and sent to a mental hospital.After a game of "Bloody Murder" in whichRyan and Mike attempt to scare James by dressing up as Trevor Moorehouse, what appears to be the real one kills James with a machete after all the others had retired for the evening.After that, camp counselors start disappearing.

As you know, the killer of the previous film was clearly modelled after slasher legend Jason Voorhees of Friday the 13th.But this film pays tribute, very loosely, on another immortal slasher, Michael Myers of Halloween.Instead of a killer wearing a hockey mask, we have one that is seen with an emotionless white mask.

Although the appearance of the killer is not the same as Jason, the weapon of choice and the scene of the killings are still the same.In the Friday the 13th movies, Jason Voorhees usually uses a machete to kill people, as does the killer in this film.Also, the story takes place primarily in a camp, just as Bloody Murder 2 does.

Being a small budget horror movie, the expectations are pretty low going in.The acting is not all that great and the plot follows a similar pattern to its predecessor.But the story is a little bit deeper this time.Tracy is the younger sister of Jason, who vanished during the events of the previous film.This establishes a sort of connection between the two movies.I don't know why the writer didn't choose to elaborate on her motive for returning to the camp that claimed her brother, though.That could have made things even more interesting, I believe.

To wrap, Bloody Murder 2: Closing Camp has nothing original to offer but it does manage to combine elements of two classic horror icons, Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees, to make a fairly entertaining slasher flick.
