Killer Camp: CW's Horror Whodunnit Series Already Our Guilty Pleasure

With what can best be described as a cross between FOX's early-2000's Murder in Small Town X and Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story: 1984, The CW has released an official trailer for the upcoming reality competition series Killer Camp. Executive produced by Steph Harris and set to premiere on The CW on Thursday, July 16, the series finds 11 contestants who thought they were going to take part in a reality summer camp series only to find out they most definitely are not. Finding themselves living an 80's summer camp slasher film, each contestant will have to figure out how to earn cash during the day while also finding the time to find the clues to identify the killer. To say that they're on the clock would be a righteous understatement because each night one of them will fall victim to the killer in what is said to be "ever more extreme, hilarious and inventive way."

Produced by Tuesday's Child and originally airing on the UK's ITV2, here's a look at what could turn out to be the greatest show of 2020 (kidding?):

In horror whodunnit competition series Killer Camp, 11 British strangers are shocked to discover they are not going on a fun new reality show called "Summer Camp" but actually participating in an over-the-top "murder" mystery series called "Killer Camp." Camp Counselor Bobby will be the first to tell you that everything at Camp Pleasant is picturesque and perfect… except the minor problem of the brutal murders. In typical reality show fashion, there will be camaraderie, sex appeal, and lots of backstabbing… only this time, literally. As the campers play games to earn cash during the day, each night one of them will meet their untimely demise in ever more extreme, hilarious and inventive way.
