The CW’s Summer Reality Series “Killer Camp” Pays Tribute to 1980s Slasher Movies [Trailer]

After originally airing in the UK last year, we’ve learned today that ’80s slasher-inspired reality series “Killer Camp” is soon making its way onto The CW here in the United States.

“Killer Camp” is a twisted version of a reality show, created as a homage to campy 80’s horror flicks. The 5-part competition series will premiere on Thursday, July 16 at 8pm EST.

In the series, “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.”

Executive produced by Steph Harris, “Killer Camp” is from Tuesday’s Child and originally aired on ITV2.
