Or, ‘”Girl”, he said,”at least you didn’t get crucified.”‘ SPOILERS!! If you want to go in clean then skip my intro and move straight into the review. A user on Letterboxd said this about Holy Camp!: I never knew I needed a Spanish, Catholic gay musical but here I am. So you know it’s got to be good. Though perhaps having the heads up … Read More Holy Camp! (Film) Review
