  • Summary: Starry-eyed teenager Camilla Swanson wants to follow in her mother's footsteps and become a Broadway diva, but she's stuck working in the kitchen of a snobby performing arts camp. Determined to change her destiny, she sneaks in to audition for the summer showcase and lands a lead role in the play, but just as rehearsals begin, blood starts to spill, and Camilla soon finds herself terrified by the horror of musical theatre.

    It’s half "Friday the 13th," half "Phantom of the Paradise," and just cheesy enough to work.

    It’s inspired enough to draw attention to ways that it doesn’t realize its potential.

    The songs are fine; the slaughter is sub-standard.

    Like a bad '80s flick, Stage Fright, could have been so much fun.

    Most frustratingly, the film rarely manages to meld its two parent genres at all, with musical-theater pastiche dominating the early going, and straight slasher pastiche taking over around the halfway point, and rarely the twain do meet.

    As horror musicals go, Stage Fright is never more than an out-of-town tryout.

    None of it works, really, as either musical satire or genre Chex mix.
