Far From Covid Far From Safe
Fuica Film Pictures and 8Cube are delighted to share the new trailer and poster for their upcoming horror, Camping Trip. The sinister thriller will be available on Digital Download in the UK, USA & Canada and Australia and New Zealand from 16th August.
Camping Trip stars Leo Zola (Leonardo Fuica), Caitlin Cameron, Hannah Forest Briand and Alex Gravenstein and is directed by Leonardo and Demian Fuica, who both make their English language feature-length directorial debuts.
In the summer of 2020, two couples decide to go on a COVID era camping trip after months of being in lockdown. The freedom of nature and the company of their best friends offer the group a rare sense of normality, but though secluded, they’re not alone. Nearby, during a botched drop off, two goons decide to go rogue; inadvertently, implicating the campers. What started as a fun-filled vacation quickly turns into a test of loyalty and survival. Suddenly the pandemic is the least of their worries.
The film was shot during the height of the pandemic in 2020, meaning requiring strict health and safety procedures were required, but this was not the only obstacle to overcome as shooting was also forced to halt for a day when a scene sounded so real to the nearby member of the public, the police were called!
Commenting on the release, Co-Director and star of Camping Trip, Leonardo Fuica said: “I’m delighted that our film will be having a multi-territory release after a great festival run. I think people vivdly remember what it was like during that first wave of covid and how it changed us all. Humans in these extreme situations can do alot of things and not always good – Camping Trip is our exploration of that.”
