"This ranks down there with the worst of the straight-to-video horror movies of recent years. The acting is sub-par, the "campfire stories" are dull and predicatable, and the myriad video camera angles and technqiues border on the nauseating at times (oh, not to mention the worst CGI you'll see this year in the "Indian" story). It's such a waste of time, that there is really nothing at all ever remotely interesting enough to make a comment like "worth seeing for a laugh" or the usual... Just skip it - save your time and money. (yes - it is one of THOSE movies, sorry to say).
Just by way of background, and while other reviewers seems to prefer to reveal much of the story and plot, I think that sort of ruins the film in many cases. So, you'll want to look for other reviews and reviewers if that is what you are looking for...

"After a mild berating from a poorly computerized skull, CAMPFIRE STORIES kicks off its trio of terrors with a wrap=around story involving three teens that are stranded in the forest. The kooky Ranger Bill invites them to sit by the fire and enjoy some campfire tales while they wait for their tow truck. In the first story, an insane criminal makes a bloody escape from prison, only to end up the tormented janitor at a local high school twenty years later. It isn't long before he gets revenge on his teen assailants using a variety of gardening accessories! Next up, three teens face an ancient Native American curse after killing an Indian shaman in an attempted robbery. Lastly, four young lovers are targeted by a voyeuristic killer during their drunken party games. Each of the campfire stories are unremarkable in every way possible, barely getting by with its passable acting and filmed on what looks like a hand-held digicam. The only thing that makes it worth watching is for the early performances by television stars Jamie-Lynn Sigler (The Sopranos), John Hensley (Nip/Tuck), Charlie Day and Rob McElhenney (It's Always Sunny in Philidelphia), and pop culture Blogger Perez Hilton. This is otherwise a tired and empty omnibus collection riding on the popularity of late-90's Teen Slashers like I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER and URBAN LEGEND.

"My roommates and I rented this movie in college, thinking it would be scary. It was so awful that we were in hysterics for pretty much the whole movie. I think we had to pause it so that we could calm down from laughing. If Mystery Science Theater 3000 was still around(sniff...I miss that show), this would be the PERFECT movie for them to watch. Rent (or buy, the cheapest copy is 29 cents!) this movie if you want to be entertained by just how bad a movie can be."
