Summer horror flicks?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know of some good new or old summer camp horror or thriller movies to watch? Doesn't have to be camping but the typical kids go venturing down a river into the woods / swimming type fun movies!

Cabin fever

Piranha remake

Open water 2

And so on?

The Final Girls and Lost After Dark were both great somewhat indie slashers.

Jaws is always a classic.

I cannot recommend Sleepaway Camp enough. One of my all-time favorite horror movies.

Everyone's seen Jaws! I've never seen sleep away camp though!

Awww Powell, man, you've never seen Sleepaway Camp?!!! I rented it back in '86 (I believe) on Vhs, and it is a CLASSIC!!! Very good summer camp horror popcorn movie! Has a heck of twist! Do yourself a favor, and rent, stream or buy this one man, it'll blow you away. Not so sure about the sequels, but the original rocks! Also "Madman" is another you can't go wrong with. Since they are 80's flicks, the same nostalgic feel of "Friday the 13th" is all over them.

P.S. The main lead blonde girl in Madman was also the gal in "Dawn of the dead" (the original)

Nice Mark I'll check them out!

No problem brother, hey some other good ones are "Final Terror" 1983 I believe, "Grizzly" 1977, uhm, hold on got a brain fart goin', "The Island" 1977 made by Peter Benchley, starring Michael Caine, crazy flick, involving pirates long forgotten in the carribbean, kinda like "Wrong Turn" in a way. "Prophecy" 1978 starring Talia Shire, about a giant mutated bear. "C.H.U.D." 1984 (good summer flick), "Pirahna" 1978 Joe Dantes original, and of course "Humanoids from the Deep" 1980 by Roger Corman starring Doug Mcclure. That's just a few to get you started. :)
