    Don't bother. I could barely get through the movie it was so bad. It's funny in some parts reminds me of an old movie called Night of the Comet but it was obvious they were going for the old 80's sci-fi vibe.

    The acting his bad. The story is bad. Some of the FX are bad. Honestly, this just isn't worth the time.

    Wow, we are on a roll this morning!

    Not a world-beater by any means, but still has some fun parts to it. Maybe not worth a theater trip, but sitting on your couch and watching Netflix? Absolutely.

    That's actually what I saying. There were some parts that reminded me of Night of the Comet and some 80's movie type nostalgia (which I like) but the rest? Meh.

    You said it wasn't worth the time. How does that equal what I said?

    I haven't finished it, but the dude walking around introducing the camp and camp employees, just made the movie look dumb, and it continued farther in. If they didn't make it so over the top goofy, I think it would be a better movie.

    I thought it was a fun movie. My kids enjoyed watching it on a lazy summer afternoon.
