Body Count (released in Italy as Camping del Terrore) is a 1986 slasher horror film directed by Ruggero Deodato.[1]

Body Count is one of the numerous sub-categorized "backwoods slashers" that occurred during the eighties made famous by Friday the 13th franchise and The Burning, along with such others as Don't Go in the Woods, Mother's Day, Just Before Dawn, Madman, The Final Terror and The Prey.


The film begins as two students named Rosie and Tom excuse themselves from a basketball game and head to a campground where it is revealed that the campground was built on a haunted Indian burial ground, adopted by an ancient Indian shaman to watch over the ground site. After Tom and Rosie finish having sex, Rosie heads out and finds an abandoned police car, not knowing that the Shaman is watching her through the bushes. Rosie gets inside the police car, only for the Shaman to attack from behind the seat, causing Rosie to flee and in the progress, gets stabbed in the hand.

As Tom searches around for Rosie, Rosie hides inside a log, where the Shaman stabs her through the log. Tom heads towards the log and looks inside, only to see the Shaman disguised in Rosie's clothing and stabs Tom's neck. Soon, a kid looks behind the log and witness the deaths of Rosie and Tom.



Bodycount's filming began in October 1985 in Abruzzo, Italy and was finished in November of the same year, but had a limited release in the United States in 1986 and had a release in Italy in 1987


The film has been released on DVD in Australia, Germany and the United Kingdom. As of 2011, the film was not theatrically released in the United States. It was released on video as Body Count however.

Critical reception[edit]

Allmovie called it a "derivative slasher entry" and "one of Deodato's least interesting films."[2]
