What Critics Are Saying: “Hell of a Summer time” finds an ensemble of camp counselors making an attempt to outlive a slasher who’s killing them one-by-one the weekend earlier than camp formally begins. Deadline Hollywood’s assessment from Valerie Complicated says the movie gives a “pleasant combine that strikes the suitable steadiness of ’80s horror nostalgia and contemporary, fashionable creativity. Whereas it sometimes stumbles in its visible execution, the intelligent narrative and sharp societal insights guarantee it is a film price watching.”

Nevertheless, Bloody Disgusting thought the movie’s comedy outshined the horror. Of their assessment, Meagan Navarro writes, “The slasher part falls to the wayside because the filmmakers spend time capturing the irreverent and sometimes dumb features of youth. It is an infinite barrage of gags, quips, and punchlines that set up the dynamics between every inventory, one-note character.” The assessment provides, “However Wolfhard and Bryk’s concentrate on the humor over the slasher means it is much less efficient on the satire. The excellent news is that their concentrate on youth tradition commentary lands, and it is clear the forged and crew had a blast making the movie.”

When Can You See It: “Hell of a Summer time” would not but have an official launch date.
