There's two different movies called Campfire Tales. If you're talking the movie with Gannar Hansen then yes I would recommend it. I've had it on video for a long time and got the DVD with tons of extras at Chiller for a good price. One of my personal favorite low budgeters along with The Willies.

I've ordered it.

He's talking about the Gunner Hansen film, not the one from New Line that is coming out in August.

Anyone pick up this DVD. If so how does it look?
09-07-2005, 05:57 PM
I almost got it, but didn't. I did notice it has a dts track. I'll probably pick it up soon.

I picked up the New Line Campfire Tales movie and it looks pretty fine, the only extra being trailers for other films.

I watched the 1997 Campfire Tales for the first time last night. Not perfect but had its entertaining moments. How this one flew under my radar for so long I have no clue, but I'm glad I finally got to see it. Worth checking out if only for the second story.
"People can lick too!"

I think this is the movie I saw years ago and one of the stories had these creatures terrorizing these people inside a camper. I guess those are the "zombies" the description tells of but I don't remember Gunnar being in the film...then again I saw it ions ago and I probably wouldn't remember him being in it either way.

love this flick/stories, definitely worth checking out!

Okay so there's apparently two films called CAMPFIRE TALES.
There's the one in question made in 1991, and there's another made in 1997.
The one in 1997, without Gunnar, is the one I was thinking of with the "moon people" and has the story, "People Can Lick Too".
I've never seen or heard of the other one till' now.

I love the 1997 film, and never saw the ending coming when I viewed it the first time.
The 1991 film isn't too great from what I can recall. Very low-budget and not very memorable. I think Sub Rosa released it to DVD several years back.

(Whines) I wanna see it now......
I'll have to try and find it :D

The '97 film is a fun little horror film that was a nice breather/change of pace from what horror had become at the time (Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer, etc.). That said, I'm also a mark for old ghost stories and urban legends, so that may be why I dig it.

this is an alright film i got it on vhs
03-21-2009, 06:47 PM
I have the 1997 version myself... it is actually one of my favorite anthology movies. I enjoyed all the stories and like that Glenn Quinn (Angel, Roseanne) was in the final story. This is one of the few anthology movies that I enjoyed the wrap-around story as much as I did the stories being told.
If you are interested you can check out the trailer for it here...
I actually watched this movie twice since I bought it this past October.

The '97 film is a pretty good little movie,saw it late night on cable.I should pick it up sometime.Did this one get any theatrical play ?

Blu-ray.com has a listing for the 1997 version (which is a huge guilty pleasure of mine) being released on May 13th. But there's no listing on Amazon or any other sites that I can find, which seems weird for a blu-ray supposedly being released next week.
I hope there's some truth to this! I love this little anthology flick!

Sounds like a joke, but would definitely be welcomed!
05-10-2012, 12:56 AM
Blu-ray.com also has this listing as well:
...which is why I don't take any listing on that site as concrete evidence of imminent release.

The 97 film was pretty good from memory. Isn't the other Campfire Tales movie supposedly a giant POS? People buy it thinking it's the good one and get some no budget waste of time instead? (Never seen it, so can't comment. I've read some none too flattering reviews, however.)
05-10-2012, 05:29 AM
I'm gonna say this (the new BD) has 0% chance of being the '97 New Line version.
