There never seems to be any shortage of anticipation for 80’s-themed horror, and as such this new reality series should really excite horror fans. The series is titled Killer Camp, and takes influence from 80’s slasher movies to create its unique sense of style. The show originally hailed from the UK last year, and it’ll now be making its way to the United States to air on The CW.
Here’s the rundown on the new Killer Camp reality series, which will be a 5-part competition:
“11 British strangers are shocked to discover they are not going on a fun new reality show called “Summer Camp’” but actually participating in a horror whodunnit called “Killer Camp.” Each night someone will be ‘murdered’ – and they must determine who the secret murderer is amongst them.”
“The object of the game is to earn cash while avoiding being killed and therefore eliminated from the game. The murderer will bump off their fellow campers in ever more extreme, hilarious and inventive ways; it’s the job of the innocents to work out who is responsible before it’s too late… The killer will eliminate an innocent every night, assisted by the evil camp handyman “Bruce,” who actually executes the bloody hilarious death scenes. Comedian Bobby Mair takes on presenting duties as Camp Counselor.”
Here’s the trailer accompanying the announcement that the series will air on The CW:
The series is executive produced by Steph Harris. Killer Camp comes from from Tuesday’s Child and originally aired on ITV2 before it was moved over to The CW.
Audiences will see Killer Camp premiere on The CW on Thursday, July 16 at 8pm EST. Hopefully it lives up to the expectations of both horror and reality television fans. Especially considering it’s such a unique concept to blend the two genres, it’ll be interesting to see how well it does in the US.
