Bloody Bloody Bible Camp (2012).
First, let me get a couple of things out of the way before reviewing this movie. Yes. Bloody Bloody Bible Camp is a comedy horror movie, and yes, Ron Jeremy does play...wait for it...Jesus. As the extended opening credits roll by, we meet the first batch of oversexed slasher fodder who visit the Happy Day Bible Camp in 1977. Seriously, the body count in the first ten minutes is huge, as people are dispatched by Sister Mary Chopper, who is a guy dressed as a nun, with a devil mask on. The dialogue in the opening sequence is also hilarious, with references to Star Wars and the fashion of the seventies. There are also a lot of rather profane religious statements, such as a girl who is ready for some fun with her boyfriend states that her "backdoor is always open for Jesus, baby".
The main story is set in 84, as a new bunch of teens head off to the Happy Day Bible Camp along with Father Cummings who is played by the always amazing Reggie Bannister, and Brother Zeke, who doesn't take his religion all that seriously.
There is an awesome scene in a store the group stop off at, with the group being warned by one of the locals who is annoyed by the 'goddamn Christians'.
This movie really did have it all. Lots of laughs, gore, a larger than life killer (played by 2001 Maniacs and 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams director Tim Sullivan) and a total un-pc feel the whole of the way through. The FX are beautifully handled, with copious amounts of gore and body parts, and there is even a little homage to Carrie later on in the movie, but I am certainly not going to reveal what it is.
The film is full of shocks, and offensive statements that no doubt will upset the more religious viewers of horror movies, but I certainly loved it all the more because of it.
This movie is excellent, and bought everything I loved about horror in the 80's back. But most of all, this movie was FUN. So if you want to be shocked, tickled or are just in the mood for a gore fest, Bloody Bloody Bible Camp is recommended for an awesome night in!!!
