Plot

Eight people are chosen to compete on Camp Slasher, a new horror-themed game show in which the contestants must complete challenges while trying to avoid a masked killer, one who is based on a local urban legend. Unbeknownst to the cast and crew of the show, an actual homicidal maniac resides in the woods where they have decided to shoot, and after massacring the program's behind-the-scenes personnel, he sets his sights on the competitors.

  • Reception

    Bloody Disgusting praised the gore, criticized the screenplay and acting, and gave the film a final score of 3/5, concluding, "Woensdag may not be a great movie but it sure is entertaining and it being a relatively short movie (75 minutes) helps keep the pace and our attention up". The acting, dialogue, story, and production values were all panned by Neerlands Filmdoek, which gave Woensdag a grade of 1½ while also conceding that, "Nevertheless, there is still something to enjoy for lovers who have no objection to these shortcomings; the film is never boring and has enough amusing horror moments, fitted with the necessary gore". Top of the Flops gave Woensdag a similar commendation, noting that despite the drawbacks inherent in it being a "semi amateurish production" the film was still enjoyable as something "designed by enthusiasts for enthusiasts". Horror Neerlands, which gave the film a final grade of 2/5, panned the personality-less characters, the seemingly nonexistent script, and the slow start, but went on to admit that Woensdag did succeed at being "quite entertaining" and "still pretty fun" in spite of its flaws. The same score was awarded by Slasherpool, which summed Woensdag up with, "Disappointing slasher flick from the Netherlands which won't likely impress anyone who lives outside Holland. It's a very dull slasher and the concept has been done to death in several, much better flicks. It doesn't help that it's almost impossible to see what was going on for most of the movie either".
