FINAL SUMMER (2022) Slasher horror preview



‘In 1991 Camp Silverlake opened for the final time.’
Final Summer is a 2022 American slasher horror film about a group of camp counsellors fighting for their lives against a masked killer.

Written, co-produced and directed by John Isberg, making his feature directorial debut. Also produced by Kevin Lau and Robert Patrick Stern.

The Front 76 Films-The Line Film Company production stars Jenna Kohn, Wyatt Taber, Bishop Stevens, Myles Valentine, Charlie Bauer, Charlee Amacher, Ricardo Whitehead and Thom Matthews.

It is late summer 1991 and the final day of summer camp at Camp Silverlake when tragedy strikes. That evening, as the counsellors attempt to shut down the camp for the season, someone is waiting in the darkness to seek revenge on the unsuspecting camp. Who is the masked killer? Is it the camp urban legend? Or is it something more sinister? Not everything is what it seems at Camp Silverlake.


Final Summer will have its world premiere on Saturday, August 13, 2022, at the Popcorn Frights film festival at the Savor Cinema in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Buy tickets here.

Write-director John Isberg commented: “I’m very excited to premiere Final Summer at Popcorn Frights Film Festival! The festival team have been really supportive and great to work with. After all the insanity of making an indie film during covid, all the battles and ups and downs, to be able to share it with such great people, awesome filmmakers and a solid community of horror fans is really special! I’m very grateful to the staff and honoured to be included in the festival. It’s been a dream years in the making and I can’t wait to come down and celebrate with everyone, thank you!”
