Teen girl Max Cartwright (Taissa Farmiga) awaits for her beautiful mom, Amanda (Malin Akerman) who is an actress and is at an audition. Unfortunately it seems as it was a bust, as she cannot escape being connected to the cult classic 80s slasher flick, Camp Bloodbath, that she was in. Even worse, they get into a car crash, and Amanda dies. Three years later Max is still devastated by the loss of her mom. There is a double screening of Camp Bloodbath and Camp Bloodbath 2: Cruel Summer that is going to be held at the local movie theater. Her friend Gertie's (Alia Shawkat) stepbrother Duncan (Thomas Middleditch), and huge horror fan, convinces Max to be present at the screening, being her mom Amanda is one of the victims in the stalk and slash flick. It also happens to be the anniversary of Amanda's death in real life.
a panel at New York Comic Con last year (the only panel I got to attended, might I add), but I never got to see it until last night when I popped in my recently purchased Blu-ray. I wish I hadn't waited so long to see it, cause it definitely would have made my top 10 movies of 2015 (at the number 6, if you must know), had I seen it then.
