Product Description

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Oh my God. Somebody help the people FAST" 7 May 2009
By All of them Witches TOP 1000 REVIEWER
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars sleepaway camp, 21 Mar 2012
Format:DVD
On the face of it a bog standard summer camp slasher. But there are real oddities. Firstly the cast is genuinely young, the kids are played by actual kids rather than twenty-somethings. The back story of why the killer is who it is is very striking. The deaths are distinctive. One visually references Nosferatu, another has a victim stabbed through a screen door and though not trumpeted, the chef's death is blessed with bogglingly realistic blistering effects. The ending is well known. but still genuinely startling.

4.0 out of 5 stars People that like this movie are a special breed 26 Oct 2007
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 13 Nov 2006
By marky77 VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Sleepaway Camp is absolutely brilliant, it is positively one of the best movies ever made and has the most shocking ending in cinematic history.

Angela Baker and her cousin, Ricky, go to Camp Arakwak for the summer. Ricky has lots of friends there and is happy but Angela is very shy and hardly ever speaks. A lot of the other kids tease her because she is so quite and doesn't participate in sports etc. But soon the kids at at Camp Arriwak start dying in horrible accidents as somebody is determined to turn this summer into a vacation to dismember...

This movie is very very good and although the gore is a little edited it still manages to be scary. There is a lot of suspence and Sleepaway Camp features lots of realistic and likeable (somethimes hateable) charactors. I can't really say too much without giving away any spoilers or plot twist but this movie is very good and it has a HUGE twist in the end. Ignore bad reviews, this movie is fantastic and deffinatly a must-see.

I would reccomend this movie to fans of horror movies, in particular slasher, or even if you are just looking for a great movie. Watch for yourself and see why this is no ordinary slasher movie...
