[Review] Camino (GenreBlast, 2017) – by Paul Cardullo

While GenreBlast is not strictly a horror film festival, it certainly features its share of horror fare along with many sci-fi epics, zany action films, and off the wall comedies. Paul Cardullo steps up to review one of the more comedic entries at the 2017  GenreBlast Film Festival – and his favorite of the weekend – Camino (2017). The film features a pair of Texan teens who drive around in an El Camino and like to steal unattended coolers hoping to score beer … or tasty sandwiches, at the very least. When they lift a cooler loaded with a pair of kidneys from a group of gangsters things get dangerous, bloody, and downright hilarious for our no-good heroes. Check out why Paul digs this riotous blend of Kevin Smith and Quentin Tarantino.

Paul Cardullo
Paul Cardullo is a North Carolina indy filmmaker and horror fan. His tastes range from art-house horror to low-budget schlock to indie gems to Slovenia killer hillbilly flicks. When not watching films, he helps make them. From actor to boom operator to doughnut wrangler, he makes himself useful wherever he can. Paul believes it is sometimes necessary to suffer for one’s art. He has endured being covered in [censored], having [censored] thrown at him, and spending over a year with muttonchops and a 70’s-style mustache. When not being abused for the sake of his craft, Paul works on computers and watches as many obscure (and not so obscure) movies as he can fit in.
