'Snow White: Deadly Summer'
(Shanely Caswell, Maureen McCormick, et al / DVD / PG-13 / 2012 / LGF)
Overview: Snow (Shanley Caswell) was stunned when her father (Eric Roberts) remarried. Still hurt and reeling, Snow began a cycle of bad behavior. Resentful of the tension Snow has caused in the house, her stepmother Eve (Maureen McCormick), convinces her father to send Snow away to a discipline camp.
DVD Verdict: The story goes, that that it is, the angelic Snow (SERIOUSLY?!) played by Shanley Caswell, is a teenage girl who lives with her father, Grant (Eric Roberts), and step-mother, Eve (Maureen McCormick). When Snow's boyfriend is caught joyriding in a stolen car, Eve suggests that the girl is out of control and suggests sending her to a wilderness camp.
Grant reluctantly agrees and two men come in the night to take Snow to Camp Allegiance. Once there, Snow meets the camp director, Hunter (Tim Abell) and her fellow campers: Cole (Chase Bennett), Lauren (Chelsea Rae Bernier), Erica (Hunter Ansley Wryn), Sara (Kelsey Weber), Jason (Patrick Lewey), Mya (Camille Cregan), and Sean (Aaron Jaeger) - all of who are at the camp for various unruly reasons.
Basically, the kids are forced to take medications daily, but Snow begins to have very vivid dreams which involve the other delinquents. She also sees a hooded figure in the woods. When campers start to disappear, Snow can't help but wonder if the old legend about a camper who once killed someone there is true. Unable to reach her father, Snow must unravel the mystery herself.
Throughout this less-than-worthy so-called horror flick, Snow and the others complain a lot (A LOT!), Camp Allegiance consists of one room and a patio and looks like it was filmed in the director's back yard, and Snow keeps having flashbacks and flash-forwards which consist of footage which we've seen before or will see!
That all said, it's wonderful to see Marcia Brady on the small screen again! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:
