The past can’t hurt you, it can kill you. Almost everyone at Camp Silverlake is afraid of something but, there is a much deeper darker fear – the fear that one terrible, deadly secret will be discovered.  (

Anything set at a summer camp is a win for me.  I have this weird attachment to anything summer camp.  I have no idea why since I’ve never actually been to summer camp but I like the idea.  There’s a lot of ambiance there for me but it’s more in a horror story of way.  I’ve seen Friday the 13th too many times apparently.  As if I have dreams of going to a fucked up summer camp.
