Sinners! That's what BLOODY BLOODY BIBLE CAMP is all about according to the crazy killer Sister Mary Chopper.

The movie starts out in 1977 at camp (of course) and we watch the beginning of the slaughtering madness. Led by Father Bobbings we watch our first group of mischievous, sex crazy kids get slaughtered in a fun, gory fashion.

Fast forward to 1984 and we  get a new crop of kids ready and unwilling to be slaughtered. Led by Father Cummings played horror icon Reggie Bannister (Phantasm, Psychic Experiment) they set out on a weekend at Bloody Bloody Bible Camp where they'll all be fighting for their lives. I completely enjoyed seeing Bannister in this role! He's still got it!

Written by Shelby McIntyre and Vito Trabucco who also directs the film completely capture the the 80's feel and its cast of characters. We have them all, the guy who warns the group, a rebellious co-leader, the jock, the nerd, the goofy kid, a stock of fresh hot girls for the slaughter and even a survivor who should have known better than to revisit this camp.. What we get are loads of fun, boobs and gore and the campiness of this movie is actually well planned out and executed. Our crazed killer "Sister Mary Chopper" is played by director Tim Sullivan (2001 Maniacs, Chillerama) who not only delivers the bloody fun kills but really adds a creepiness to the character. Sullivan is just fun to watch and even listen to, that's all I'm saying.  Another way-out-there highlight is Ron Jeremy showing up and playing who else, Jesus. Look out for the lightning bolts people! I also recognized several actors and actresses in the flick from the indie horror world including Elissa Dowling, Jeff Dylan Graham and Jessica Sonneborn.

Bloody Bloody Bible Camp was a great movie. There's a few flaws but nothing that can't be overlooked. It's well written and acted with lots of fun dialogue, over the top humor and gory special F/X. Another thing that many indie movies have trouble with are the lighting and sound and this movie is excellent in both departments plus the score was a perfect fit.

Bottom line is Bloody Bloody Bible Camp fits right in with our horror favorites from the early 80's. Horror fans (young and old) will enjoy the retro feel and campy overload it has.  This horror/comedy is highly recommended for all the maniacs out there! I really enjoyed it and hope to see more from Sister Mary Chopper! 3.5/5
