2022 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 20: Nightmare Vacation (2017)

20. TRIPS: Vacations don’t always go how you planned them. Can you get away from the getaway?

This movie may use the UK title of Sleepaway Camp, but it’s actually a lost Polonia Brothers movie that was made by John Polonia and Todd Michael Smith, then restored and finished by Mark. He also provides the narration that keeps this film together, the duct tape holding together this shot on video haunted house, as it were.

This starts with a beach vacation that promises booze and babes, as they say, but ends with a fight sequence that goes on for a long time — and may still be going on — along with some cool see-through masks for the killer.

The camera flies all over the place but there’s a lot of blood. Sure, it’s not really a finished film, but do you come to a fifty-minute Polonia brothers movie from 1993 expecting something that the Criterion Collection will release?

You can watch this on Tubi.
