Welcome to Camp Crystal Meth, Where Everyone Scores – ‘Camp Death III in 2D’ Movie Review

If you’re a fan of parodies and ridiculously entertaining, hilariously cheesy dialogue, then Camp Death III in 2D will be your safe haven as it was mine. The acting and delivering of lines is perfectly tongue in cheek with how campy horror movies used to be at the time. You might recall the crazy PR stunt the director, Matt Frame, pulled when the film was first released. What could go wrong?


Camp Death III in 2D is a comedy/horror parody of Friday the 13th Part III in 3D and is proudly presented in two dimensions.

Directed by Matt Frame (GGG: One Night Stab 2013) from a screenplay he wrote, Camp Death III in 2D tells the story of Camp Crystal Meph, which had been shut down for three years after the murderous rampage of Johann Van Damme (Terry Mullet: Supergirl TV series) was put to an end by a foul-mouthed puppet. With Johann safely locked up in the asylum, the camp is re-opened as a rehabilitation center for the criminally insane. Crystal Meph is run by a team of grossly unqualified counselors: there’s the head counselor, Todd (Dave Peniuk: The Romero Section TV series), a hopeful wimp ready to burst into tears at a moment’s notice; his verbally abusive Uncle Mel (Darren Andrichuk: 3 Hours Till Dead 2017), Todd’s love interest, Rachel (Angela Galanopoulos: The Unauthorized Melrose Place Story 2015), a traumatized survivor of Johann’s previous massacre, and finally, there’s the wheelchair bound Barry (Chris Allen: The Evil In Us 2016). To the surprise of no one, the masked menace that is Johann has returned to Crystal Meph to finish what he has started.

Dave Peniuk did a really good job as the lead, Todd, and kept the jokes coming and soaring high. Darren Andrichuk was the scene stealer here, telling everyone to, “F off and get back to work!” Angela Galanopoulos also did an exceptional job as Rachel Diaz, the a traumatized survivor of the previous massacre.

Knowing how this is a parody of Friday The 13th III (1982) (which was in 3D), I noticed right away the really funny bit they did where the campers are members of an asylum for the criminally insane. There are some really cool spoofs here, including a radical Star Wars pod race where we see a few hilarious death sequences here, like a camper reading the inside of a lightsaber for instructions. The best kill sequence involves a spatula and a toaster in a bit that seems straight out of Deadpool. Don’t get too attached to the cast, as the kill counter is high! This is a laugh out loud parody to end all parodies.

Camp Death III in 2D is scheduled to be released February 15, 2019, digitally via Amazon Prime.
