Dead of Summer is a supernatural horror series that aired on Freeform in 2016. The show features a talented cast, including Elizabeth Mitchell, Elizabeth Lail, and Alberto Frezza, who play main characters in the story. Set in the late 1980s, the show follows a group of counselors at Camp Stillwater, an idyllic summer camp that is located in the middle of a dense forest. As they arrive for their first day, they soon discover that the camp has a dark and mysterious past that will haunt them throughout the summer.

The story is told through a series of flashbacks and present-day scenes, adding layers of complexity to the plot. The show focuses on the lives of the counselors, who are dealing with their own personal issues while simultaneously trying to uncover the secrets of the camp.

The main character of the show is Amy Hughes (Elizabeth Lail), a young counselor who is struggling to come to terms with the recent loss of her best friend. She is haunted by visions of her friend's death and is desperately searching for answers. Her character arc throughout the season is compelling, as she grows and develops in unexpected ways.

Another major character is Deb Carpenter (Elizabeth Mitchell), the owner of the camp. She is a strict and controlling figure who runs the camp like a military operation, but as the show progresses we see that she also has hidden depths and a tragic backstory.

Finally, we have Alberto Frezza's character, Deputy Garrett Sykes. As a police officer, he is initially suspicious of the camp and its counselors, but as he gets to know them better, he becomes more of an ally. His character adds a touch of humor to the show, as well as providing some exciting action sequences.

Throughout the season, the counselors are plagued by a string of mysterious occurrences. Lights flicker, objects move on their own, and strange voices can be heard in the woods. As the summer progresses, they begin to unravel the dark secrets of the camp and discover that they are not alone.

The supernatural elements of the show are well executed, with a creepy atmosphere and some genuinely scary moments. The show draws on a range of horror influences, from classic slasher movies to haunted house stories, and creates a world that is both familiar and unsettling.

Overall, Dead of Summer is a stylish and engaging horror series that will keep viewers on the edge of their seat. The characters are well developed, the plot is intriguing, and the scares are well executed. Fans of horror and suspense will definitely want to check this one out.
