Summer Camp: The Slasher Video Game

Summer Camp is an upcoming horror survival game for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.  Made by Gun Media, they wanted to get the feel of an 80’s slasher and do it right, so they’re bringing in the guru of gore, Tom Savini.  This was enough to spark my interest, but on top of that, they’re bringing in Harry Manfredini to do the soundtrack.  If you’re not familiar with who he is, he’s the creator of the iconic “chh, chh, chh, chhh, ahh, ahh, ahh, ahhh” from Friday the 13th.

The game is set at Camp Forest Green (a camp name used in Friday the 13th Part VI). You will play as a camp counselor and work with other counselors to escape from the killer.  You can also take the role of the killer and track down and kill all of the camp counselors.  It’s also said that this will be the first entry in a series.

Leatherface, another Texas Chainsaw Massacre Prequel

Many horror fans probably saw 2006’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning and were left disappointed.  A prequel to the 2003 remake, it had decent blood and gore but few scares.  On top of that, there was a poor attempt at the story, and contained new twists to the well known story.

Having seen this, I was a little concerned when I saw that there was going to be another Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel.  ‘Leatherface’ will take place before the original 1974 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and will focus on his formative teenage years.  It was recently announced that Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo are attached to the project as directors.  These two are prominent French directors that are known for helping to usher in a new wave of French horror. They should bring good storytelling to the franchise while maintaining the gore and dark and gritty nature expected with Texas Chainsaw Massacre.  If things go as they’re looking, ‘Leatherface’ may be the first film in the franchise to do it right since the 2003 remake.

Halloween: The Complete Collection on Bluray

This came in the mail yesterday just in time for a nice Halloween marathon.  It has all of the original films plus the Rob Zombie remakes.  Each disc contains some extra features as well, commentaries, behind the scenes and trailers.  The remakes also have some blooper reels that are worth a watch. 

The ten discs are placed into two cases that then slide into the box pictured above.  I picked this up on sale on the walmart website for $75. It’s a great collection to have.

If you’re a huge fan of the Halloween franchise, you may want to check out the complete deluxe edition collection.  For an extra $40 or so, you can get the 15 disc version.  It includes the television versions of some of the films.  Honestly, the only difference that might make the deluxe edition worth it is the Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers (producer’s cut), a version previously only available as a bootleg.  I would only recommend getting the deluxe edition if you need the best collection, or if you feel that you HAVE to see the producer’s cut, but have an aversion to bootlegs.

Either way, having all of the Halloween films on bluray is a great addition to any horror fan’s collection.
