Imagine the tranquil setting of a campground surrounding a crystal clear lake and a landscape dotted with small individual cabins. This sounds almost idyllic, doesn’t it? Perhaps so that you would take your family there for a relaxing weekend. That is unless that campground is the sight of Melissa Sandlin’s horror/thriller “Camp Love.”
Here a group of adults will gather to reopen a family owned campground as an adult camping getaway. To promote this getaway, this group is invited to “Camp Love” to be a part of a commercial. What these campers don’t realize is they were all secretly nominated to play a little game which will leave the campers fighting for their lives. Will this be another gory hack and slash movie with all of the cliched time-worn horror tropes? Or will this be something fresh, something truly terrifying?
This is the premise of Melisa Sandlin’s feature length horror movie. The answer as to what horror this film holds will emerge somewhere between the time principal filming wraps and post-production editing brings this narrative into focus and brings it alive.. When “It’s a lock?” is announced, a viewing is certain to raise goosebumps on whoever is exposed to this movie.
To set the tone and ensure that this production will not only deliver the scary Melisa brought the best technical talent in Michigan to the picture. She has also cast some of Michigan’s finest acting talent.
