A COVID-Era 'Camping Trip' Turns Deadly in First Trailer for Upcoming Thriller

Fuica Film Pictures and 8Cube have shared the new trailer and poster for their upcoming horror Camping Trip, which will be available on Digital in the US and Canada (via Gravitas Ventures) on August 16th.

The sinister thriller is set in the summer of 2020 when 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."

Camping Trip stars Leonardo Fuica (aka "Leo Zola"), 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.

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 supposedly "sounded so real to the nearby member of the public, the police were called."
