TV show description:
This supernatural horror TV show is set in the late 1980s. School is out for the summer, and a sun-drenched season beckons the counselors at Camp Stillwater.
It’s a seemingly idyllic Midwestern summer camp and there will be plenty of firsts — first loves, first kisses, and first kills. Stillwater’s dark, ancient mythology awakens, and what was supposed to be a summer of fun soon turns into one of unforgettable scares and evil at every turn.
Camp Stillwater is about to reopen after being closed down for years. The new owner, Deborah “Deb” Carpenter (Elizabeth Mitchell), has thrown her heart, soul and life savings into renovating the camp she loved as a child.
She isn’t the only one excited to return as six former campers join her as counselors hoping to experience the freedom that camp brings now that they are older. They are Alex Powell (Ronen Rubinstein), Jessie Tyler (Paulina Singer), Carolina “Cricket” Diaz (Amber Coney), Joel Goodson (Eli Goree), Blair Ramos (Mark Indelicato), and Jason “Blotter” (Zachary Gordon).
Not part of the old crew, Amy Hughes (Elizabeth Lail) is not just new to Camp Stillwater, but to camp in general. While Amy tries her best to fit in with the already tight group, Drew Reeves (Zelda Williams) is content to be left alone.
As everyone settles in and prepares for the campers’ arrival, Amy is the first to get a feeling that something is not right with this idyllic summer camp. It’s not long before Deputy Garrett Sykes (Alberto Frezza) knows for sure there’s trouble.
Episode #10 — She Talks to Angels
What was supposed to be a fun summer that the Camp Stillwater counselors would never forget quickly turned into a horrible experience they will be lucky to survive. As summer comes to a close, the centuries-old battle between good and evil at Lake Stillwater is settled once and for all.
First aired: August 30, 2016.
