A young girl who witnessed the accidental death of her father in a boating accident as a child, spends a summer vacation at Camp Arawak with her cousin, where she is systematically bullied by the counsellors there.
Unoriginal, tame slasher-horror from the 80s which is dull for the most part. ~ The Lord

Friday the 13th rip-off trundles along in rather dull expected fashion...until the ending, when it pulls off a terrific goosebump inducing twist that places this way way above the competition. ~ The Sloth
