“It’s a fun film — Rose is clearly having a blast in her role — and while not the best slasher you’ve seen, it moves quickly and has a decent ending.” B & S About Movies

Camp Twilight perhaps errs a little too much on the comedy side of things, taking a while to build to the slasher aspect […] A bigger, bloodier final girl showdown would have been welcomed also and the flick could have been a bit tighter if 10 mins were shorn off.” Blueprint: Review

“The film does have a sense of humour – odd dialogue from the incompetent rangers can raise a smile – but it’s delivered through awkward slapstick sequences […] Characters can switch awkwardly from one extreme emotional state to another, often without reasonable motivation. Drawing attention to particular social issues like this just feels jarring, and abrasive..” Go Beyond the Veil

“If you head to Camp Twilight knowing the type of slasher it is trying to be then there will be fun and entertainment for you here. It doesn’t try to innovate, or to give any type of particular message, and its many kills are often lacking, but as brain dead entertainment it succeeds without ever becoming dull, and spotting the cameos was something fun to do.” The Rotting Zombie

“It’s carried by a fine cast of characters who really put colour to the proceedings and work well as an ensemble, there’s plenty of humour that goes well with the horror and doesn’t feel like taking cheap shots at the genre, and even if the final resolution doesn’t come quite as surprising as intended, it’s well-executed – as is the whole movie, amounting to some good genre fun.” Search My Trash

“It’s a reunion of scream queens; Linnea Quigley, Felissa Rose, Camille Keaton, Jessica Cameron, and, if these names don’t ring a bell, I’m sure you’ll notice how intense their performances are […] The editing is wobbly. The kills are so-so. Some shots are a few seconds too long, but the execution works most of the time.” Tales of Terror

” …most of the kills are either offscreen or rely on flying blood. Perhaps they should have done without a couple of the cameos and invested in more and better effects. Because with a cast this big and so many victims, spicing the kills up would have made a big difference. So would a killer who had a costume scarier than a black hoodie and a ski mask.” Voices from the Balcony

“The film features great performances, a fantastic storyline, and excellent comic relief, but with some editing love, it would be a well-crafted masterpiece. Overall, Camp Twilight is a refreshing, unique slasher that I think all horror fans will enjoy for the spooky season.” Wicked Horror

“Had Camp Twilight kept itself a comedic film with murderous twists, it would have worked straight through to the end. I loved this film while it was making me roll my eyes and laugh aloud. Unfortunately, the third act loses that absurd edge and becomes a more conventional psychopathic slasher film.” Without Your Head
