In the summer of 2020, two couples decide to go on a camping trip after months of being in lockdown. The freedom of nature and the company of their best friends offer the group a rare sense of normality, but though secluded, they’re not alone.
Nearby, during a botched drop-off, two goons decide to go rogue; inadvertently, implicating the campers. What started as a fun-filled vacation quickly turns into a test of loyalty and survival. Suddenly the lockdown is the least of their worries…
Camping Trip will be available on Digital Download via Gravitas Ventures in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand from August 16, 2022.
“The movie isn’t packed with excitement, but it works under the circumstances that it was filmed. It’s certainly not going to be for everyone’s tastes and those wanting some real horror will be a little disappointed, but the thriller side of Camping Trip works. The soundtrack from Michel DeMars certainly works for moments of shock and tension…” Blazing Minds
“The production values are exceptional, particularly cinematography, lighting and sound, especially for an indie; it’s just a shame that it falters so irrevocably in the script and some of the performances. Though a unique take on the pandemic blues, this movie is overwrought, overindulgent and takes itself far too seriously for its own good.” 2 out of 5, The Movie Waffler
“At nearly two hours running time Camping Trip really needed a prune, thrillers need to be tight and well-paced, not flabby and indulgent […] There’s little in the way of solid characterisation, they are not well-rounded enough to engage with, and one’s attention begins to wander.” My Bloody Reviews
“The scenery is nice but we spend way too much time looking at it and the cinematography tends towards being overly artsy with lots of circling shots and frequently repeating shots for effect, the effect being that it ruins the shots. An almost total misfire that turns what should have been a fast, no-nonsense thriller into an extremely overlong and self-important dud…” 1 out of 5, Voices from the Balcony
