Two More Visits to “The Campground” Planned
Studio 605 is wasting no time to bring to life 2 sequels to their 2013 independent horror film “The Campground”. In the original, a group of campers are terrorized in the woods by a slasher named Charlie Varsin who wore a wicked mask and was a brutal killer. The sequels look to tell the full story of this maniac. There are two characters from the original that will be returning and they have the band ‘The Vains’ scheduled to make a musical guest appearance. There are perks that range from a social media shout out, to a poster or even a personal communication with the Director Roman ‘RoJo’ Jossart . A donation of $150 earns you the right to come to the set, act in 3 scenes and be killed on camera. You can find out more about their campaign by clicking here. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1464244473/studio-605-presents-the-campground-2and3-slasher-h
