How would you compare this to classic 80’s camp movies like, Friday the 13th?

I got involved in acting when I was a child I was in a beauty pageant and they had us recite lines and songs for a skit we had to do in front of a live audience it was also televised live very intense but amazing. As I got older I started getting into acting more and more and I’ve been doing it since, this is my passion and my dream career. I’ve been in a few music videos for local artists here in Colorado, and a few commercials such as Turo. I filmed a movie recently with actors Kevin Sorbo, and Eric Robert’s called Devils knight and than this movie Camp Pleasant Lake I can’t wait to see what’s next.
