If you’ve ever wondered if you’d survive a horror movie, you can now. The upcoming reality series Killer Camp is basically a hybrid of 80’s slasher movies, murder mystery dinner theater, and the party game Mafia/Werewolf. Contestants try to avoid being “murdered” by a typical slasher villain while figuring out who among them is the killer.
Check out the official description below:
11 British strangers are shocked to discover they are not going on a fun new reality show called “Summer Camp’” but actually participating in a horror whodunnit called “Killer Camp.” Each night someone will be ‘murdered’ – and they must determine who the secret murderer is amongst them.
The object of the game is to earn cash while avoiding being killed and therefore eliminated from the game. The murderer will bump off their fellow campers in ever more extreme, hilarious and inventive ways; it’s the job of the innocents to work out who is responsible before it’s too late… The killer will eliminate an innocent every night, assisted by the evil camp handyman “Bruce,” who actually executes the bloody hilarious death scenes. Comedian Bobby Mair takes on presenting duties as Camp Counselor.
Coming to the CW this summer
The premise of the show sounds a little more “horror game show” than reality show to me. But I guess the distinction will come based on how much time we spend watching the contestants when they’re not… getting murdered.
The CW acquired Killer Camp to help fill its summer 2020 broadcast slate. The show originally aired in the UK.
Killer Camp premieres July 16 at 8pm.
