Plot:
Some time has passed since Patricia's friends were slaughtered by the clown in the woods of Camp Blood. Still locked up in an asylum, Patricia is continuously plagued by nightmares of the killer clown. Against his better judgement, Patricia's doctor lets her leave the asylum under the care of a local director who wants to make a movie based on the murders. As she heads back into the woods with the actors and a film crew, the murders begin again.

Our thoughts:
I'm not sure why Brad Sykes decided he needed to make a sequel to "Camp Blood" but, then again, why not. "Camp Blood 2" is as bad as it's predecessor but I'm actually willing to go out on a limb and say it's actually kind of clever. "Camp Blood 2" is about a movie being made about the murders that occured in the first movie - basically a horror movie about a horror movie being made, and wouldn't you know it, the horror part becomes a reality. People are picked off one by one, everyone thinks it's Patricia doing it, Patricia thinks it's everyone around her doing it, things happen, there's a twist, lots of oh's and ah's are had because of the twist and then it's left open for another sequel.

The general setup isn't what's clever about the movie. What I think made it clever and I'll stress the point that when I say it's clever, I'm only talking about a very, very small percentage of the movie. We're talking a tiny fraction here. Anyway, what's clever is that I would say the movie is basically a dramatic recreation of what it was like for Brad Sykes to make the first movie. Only nobody actually died - just the spirits and dreams of those who worked on it. "Camp Blood 2" features a director who dreams big and heads out in the local woods with a video camera, friends who represent a crew and a bunch of would-be actors giving it there all, which is kind of sad if that's their all. I'm sure nobody was delusional to the lacking quality of "Camp Blood" and "Camp Blood 2" can be seen kind of a ribbing of the first movie - and it's Brad's willingness to poke fun of himself and his movie with a sequel is what I'm willing to give the movie credit for in terms of being clever.

"Camp Blood 2" is another BAD no-budget direct-to-video slasher with the exact same problems as the first movie and all other movies that are of the same nature. There aren't any redeeming qualities about the movie and "Camp Blood 2" is more a less a recreation of the first movie, except without any actual improvements to the concept or execution. I don't have the love-hate relationship for "Camp Blood 2" like I do with the first one because it's nothing but another junk movie as far as I'm concerned.


Positive things:
- Eh, I'm sure there was something. What that something was, I don't know.
Negative things:
- Yeah, still not going to go there.
