Camping del Terrore (Body Count)

Ruggero Deodato's Camping del Terrore has very little in common with what most readers of this blog would consider a giallo. Set in the states and featuring an American teen cast being picked off one by one by what may or may not be an "old Indian Shaman", the film has far more in common with any American bodycount film of the 80's than with any golden age gialli. Although the film is a very average slasher, it's still quite nice to see Mimsy Farmer, David Hess, John Steiner and Ivan Rassimov in action. Poster art by Armando Testo.

This movie has a really great soundtrack!!

Not a giallo but a "must see" film...some scenes are
just brilliant!
And i think it is Ivan's last performance in cinema.
(please correct me if i'm wrong)

I don't really consider it a giallo either, but since it's included in Adrian Luther Smith's Blood and Black Lace I decided to post it anyway. It does have its moments though
