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.
