Triple bill of comedy horror In 'Sleepaway Camp' (aka Nightmare Vacation) the teenage boys and girls at Camp Arawak are learning to experience the joys of nature as well as each other. But when these happy campers die in a series of horrible 'accidents' it becomes clear that someone - or something - has turned their summer of fun into a vacation to dismember. In 'Sleepaway Camp 2 (aka Nightmare Vacation 2)', Angela Baker (Pamela Springsteen) has become a counselor at Camp Rolling Hills - a summer camp for teenagers. Crazy Angela has plans to teach the badly-behaved campers a lesson or two in survival - by slicing, stabbing, drilling, barbecuing, chain-sawing and worse. Whilst the third part of the gruesome body-count saga, 'Sleepaway 3', sees a group of lusty teenagers on an Autumn retreat at Camp New Horizons. Lunatic Angela Baker joins them and gives them a lesson in butchery with axes, trucks, firecrackers, lawnmowers and more.

Format: DVD
An almost definitive example of a 'cult' film. A really strange kind of a Friday the 13th homoerotic hybrid for teens, middle-aged gay men and fans of quirky, quite bad, low budget horrors.
The main thrust of the film involves a number of slayings at an adolescent camp where 'Angela' a disturbed young girl is staying with her far more socially adjusted cousin 'Ricky' All the individuals killed, staff and residents have in some way crossed or slighted the strange 'Angela' and the increasing body count by all accounts is not enough to warrant the closure of or withdrawal of most of the kids staying at the camp.
The killings are very tamely handled and much of the murder act is not seen, with close ups of legs or in shadow etc. The special effects are inconsistent with the act perpetrated so that the fellow attacked by a handful of bees in the toilet who couldn't break a thin stick locking the toilet door looked as if he had the bubonic plague as he lay dead on the bathroom floor; in comparison they could have gone to town a little more on the paedophilic chef who was scalded all over but just had slight blistering. Anyway these incidents were put down to accidents and high jinks and didn't impact upon the daily camp activities.
The acting is bound to be slated, in fact the young actress playing Angela was cast due to impressing at her auction with her ability to eat a chocolate bar whilst gazing into space, but I didn't think it was that bad at all and complimented the film anyway.
The ending was hmmmm. I did laugh a little once it occurred to me what was actually going on. It's a bit of cult cinematic viewing that may well have disappeared out of sight but maybe deserves to have established itself within the niche circle of admirers it has obtained, in the US particularly where summer camps are a cultural norm.

This main reason this movie was remembered was because of the ending. The director really did succeed at making a movie that would make jaws drop in the theater, and keep people thinking about it when they leave.

I made the mistake of seeing this movie when I was 10 years old. You can live through seeing a movie like this when you're older, but I was afraid I would be scarred for life. I was enjoying the movie when I was watching it, until I saw the ending, and my stomach churned. This movie has many creative but grisly death scenes (I shrieked when I saw the horrifying bee death). This movie had a lot of points that kept you awake and drawn to it, which is good. It is a mystery to find out who the killer is, so that keeps you going. Sleepaway Camp is not a slow movie. There were a lot of things about the movie I was way too young to see. There was a lot of homosexual references, but I guess I know now that was foreshadowing the climax of the movie. This movie is still good despite the shocker ending. Many people push this movie aside because of the ending... they think the guy who made this movie was definitely sick. But the movie was still good, just very different and awfully disturbing. I don't think you'll be scarred for life by seeing this movie, but see it with another person. Believe me, you might feel uncomfortable if you don't have someone by your side once it ends.

Unless you have a strong lining in your stomach, there are some things in this movie that you can't unsee. They get in your head and stay there. I think some versions of Sleepaway Camp are cut, but the original release was uncut. A lot of the death scenes look very realistic (maybe that's just me), and they're unlike any you've ever seen before.

Format: DVD
Oh f%^&! That was my bona fide reaction to the final scene, and I'm pretty sure it will also be yours as long as you go into this film with no outside knowledge about what happens. I laughed off this film's claim to offer "the most shocking climax in the history of American cinema," but I'm here to tell you these guys were serious - and they deliver the goods. This may or may not be the most shocking ending of all time, but I'm here to tell you that it's way up there on the list. Up until that point, this was just a slightly better than average slasher, but now I want to out and shout "Sleepaway Camp" from the rooftops. It has been so long since any slasher offered me even the smallest of surprises, then here comes along this cult classic from 1983 to totally blow me away. If you have even the smallest iota of interest in horror films, you simply must watch Sleepaway Camp.

What parent wouldn't want to send their little angel to Camp Arawak? The guy who runs the place is a dirty old man, the head cook's a pedophile, and the counselors are worse than the kids. Here, your child can take part in water balloon fights atop a sloping roof, wander out into the lake to skinny dip or dump his canoe passengers any time night or day, and be as mean to the other kids as he wants. Yep, this is a great place for kids to go camping. One kid who does not enjoy the experience, however, is Angela (Felissa Rose), who is sent there along with her cousin Ricky (Jonathan Tiersten) by Aunt Martha. Martha is a strange one; she looks weird, she talks weird, and she's completely loony tunes - but she has been Angela's guardian ever since a tragic boating accident made her an orphan. It's no wonder - after all she's been through - that Angela is shy and withdrawn among the other kids at Camp Arawak.
