The '80s are alive and terrifying on Freeform. And we don't just mean the fashion choices, either.

In this clip from new series Dead of Summer, exclusive to E! News, the scene has been set for plenty of bloodshed among the fresh faced camp counselors attempting to re-open Camp Stillwater after closing under suspicious (read: deadly) circumstances five years back. Don't believe us? Allow Joel (Eli Goree) to explain.

"We're in the middle of the woods," he tells his buddies around the campfire. "No phones, no cars, no weapons. No locks on the cabin doors. Anyone could come in through the forest or on the lake. Through that one little gate on the main road, someone could come in and kill each and every one of us. They wouldn't find the bodies for days."

While Joel's not exactly winning anyone over with his sunny disposition, could his fears about Stillwater turning into Camp Crystal Lake (you know, from Friday the 13th) be about to come true? Well, you're going to have to press play on the video above to find out.

Hailing from Once Upon a Time co-creators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, as well as executive producers Ian Goldberg and Steve Pearlman, Dead of Summer stars Elizabeth Mitchell as Deb, the former camper who's taking on the clearly doomed task of reopening Stillwater as its dark, ancient mythology reawakens. Starring as her collection of disposable camp counselors are Elizabeth Lail, Zelda Williams, Mark Indelicato, Alberto Frezza, Ronen Rubenstein, Amber Coney, and Paulina Singer, as well as Goree.
