    In firing up a list of movies to watch in October I wanted to get in some movies I have never seen before that revolved around camping/summer camp. Obviously Friday the 13th is huge in that genre and I love those but was looking for some others that maybe I missed. I have already seen (trying hard to remember and I am sure I'll forget some):

    Sleepaway Camp 1-3 *
    Just before Dawn *
    Bloody Murder (1, 2,graveyard)*
    Camp Blood (all 3)
    Cheerleader Camp
    Madman *
    The Burning *
    American Gothic *
    Don't go in the Woods
    Blair Witch *
    Final Terror
    Cannibal Campout
    Camp Slaughter
    Wrong Turn (kind of in this category) *



    I liked most of them (and really liked the ones with an asterisk), so if you can suggest any other slasher type camping movies in this style please let me know so I can look forward to checking out some overlooked gems....Thanks in advance!

    Off the top of my head: "Twisted Nightmare" and Ruggero Deodato's "Bodycount."

    Add Bloody Murder and Bloody Murder 2 as well.

    I just picked up the first one today, I hadn't heard of either until now.

    Cool thanks for the recommendations so far.

    Hey Ace, there was recently a thread on this over in the slashers forum. It was about "Backwoods" slashers specifically, but the answers are basically the same thing. Here's the link:

    http://horrordigital.com/vb3forum/showthread.php?t=36492

    There's plenty more recommendations in there. Such a fine sub-genre!

    Moving this to slashers as well.

    Salute Your Shorts, the episode where everyone gets killed. They made one like that, right?
