A Red-Letter Review of Vito Trabucco’s Bloody Bloody Bible Camp (2012)

Virtues: Bloody Bloody Bible Camp fills every promise it makes in its premise and title. It’s a campy camp slasher with a biblical twist. There are quite a few top-notch kills, my favorite probably being this one: Take a drink for every dick joke and you’ll get to where you need to be to enjoy … More A Red-Letter Review of Vito Trabucco’s Bloody Bloody Bible Camp (2012)

Small town boredom and a rapid fire imagination merge into a flawed but magically bizarre Florida SOV nightmare. Logic is left behind almost from the get go and we’re dropped headfirst into a world of skateboarding, punk/thrash culture, non-sequiturs and (of course) death. Paul is a kid who loves skateboarding.
