Right from the beginning you can tell this movie is going to copy Friday the 13th, just look at the cover. Camp counselers are setting up camp while waiting for the children to arrive, however instead of Jason Voorhees doing the killing it's supposedly a man named Trevor Moorhouse. Bloody Murder pretty much steals everything from Friday the 13th, even the senile old man who warns the counselers that thy're all "DOOMED"
The only difference between this movie and Friday the 13th is the fact that we don't know who the killer really is and that is much like "Scream"
So, if you've seen a ton of horror movies like I have and you just need a fix maybe you'd consider renting it, however I wouldn't suggest buying this cheap carbon copy of other great horror movies.
But, if you want a laugh.. this is worth checking out. You may get a little aggravated with the bad acting and the "it's Trevor Moorhouse" refernces. A tad bit overdone. The plot fails to tell you who he is, where he comes from, why he is killing, et etc. Trevor also turns out to be some little 5' 10" 180lb masked squirt with a chainsaw instead of a left hand (UM, EVIL DEAD 2?!?).
Anyways, watch part 2 instead. Almsot the same storyline.. better gore, blood, acting,story, etc.
The basic plot, and it is basic because no one associated with this crime possesses the ability to create anything decent, involves Camp Placid Pines. Apparently, this summer camp suffered a series of grisly murders many years ago at the hands of one Trevor Morehouse, a rather lonely chap who runs around the woods in a mask while wielding a chainsaw or any other sharp object he gets his grubby hands on. The introductory scene shows Morehouse in action as he chases a guy through the woods with a chainsaw that, although it makes the sound of an operating chainsaw, has blades that do not move. Flash forward a few years to the present, when Camp Placid Pines brings in a new batch of wannabe counselors with the intention of setting up camp activities before the kiddies arrive. The co-ed group includes the star of our movie, Julie, played with mind numbing banality by Jessica Moore.Read more ›
The story begins with tales of Trevor Moorehouse, the local campground bogeyman, and the feats of horror he has inflicted upon the populous. Still, our instructors laugh these bits of folklore off, looking forward to having the time of their lives as most local people do - working through the generations at camp Placid Pines. When our initial five arrive upon the scene, they are greeted by four others - a boss, two people they don't know, and another they seeming hate - and everything seems like a funfilled experience. That all changes, however, when they decide to play a little game of "it" they call Bloody Murder one night and the people, one by one, begin disappearing throughout the days.
If you are someone that requires more than a "who done it" mixed into your almost bloodless Bloody Murder, you might want to simply rent this film and not take your chances. Still, if you do like your bodies cold, your campgrounds desolate, and your
humor a little violent, its well worth a look.
To note, the DVD is a bit barren but does have a feature allowing you to skip to any death, amusing me to no end in the process.

There is nothing, not one thing, in this movie that would make me recommend it. It’s poorly written, it’s poorly made, it’s boring, it’s the worst. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Shaun Leaman
