The next day, the counselors inform Patrick that Jason and Whitney have gone missing, and they call the Sheriff who interrogates the group.

She searches him, and discovers that Nelson Hammond was almost killed in an accident involving the game “Bloody Murder”. He then came back a few years later and killed one of the counselors that caused the prank and was sent to a mental institution. That night, Julie is attack again by a man and he chases her to the mess hall and she locks him in the freezer. But the man is just Jason, who actually did take off, worried that Dean would tell about him cheating on Julie with Whitney, and he was worried because the police were after him. Jason is taken in by the police.The body count ups as another counselor, Doug is finished off. Julie’s father arrives after hearing about the police, and Drew and Julie’s father walk to the lake, as Julie retreats to her cabin to gather some things. There, she deduces the killer is Drew when she sees that Drew’s father was Bill Anderson, the man that Nelson Hammond killed for revenge and that Drew is out for revenge. She races to the missing, and she accuses Drew. But she is proven wrong when the killer appears and attacks them. Drew is knocked out and Julie flees. Julie runs into Patrick, and then Patrick reveals he is the killer. He is really Nelson Hammond and is seeking revenge for his accident that the other counselors caused. He attacks Julie with an axe, and chases her through the woods. She runs to the camp, and the other counselors, the police, Patrick and Julie gather. Patrick tries to make it seem, Julie hit her head and is delusional. But only Tobe believes Julie, and threatens to shoot Patrick, but finds out he has no bullets. Patrick swings at Julie, just as a shot rings out, hitting Patrick’s arm and it is revealed that Drew fired the shot.

Once Sheriff Williams arrives at the police station with Patrick, he questions why he killed Doug, having nothing to do with Patrick’s scheme. Patrick then tells Sheriff Williams that he didn’t kill Doug, and it must have been Trevor Moorehouse, hinting that the real Trevor is still out there.Later, Julie and Jamie say their goodbyes and Julie breaks up with Jason in order to be with Tobe, angering Jason. As Jason is walking home alone, Trevor Moorehouse appears behind bushes wielding a chainsaw, and Jason screams in terror, before the screen cuts out.Well you can tell by the cover of this movie that it’s a Friday the 13th rip off, and ignore the chainsaw, there’s only one killing with a chainsaw. It didn’t have much blood and gore, and what blood was shown looked like red spray paint. Less than half of the characters were killed. This movie strongly resembles the form of the early 80’s slashers. It had the potential to be really good and it wasn’t. If you’re a hard core horror fan looking for a modern camp slasher,  you may like it, but you’ll probably be disapointed.
