The first Sleepaway Camp is awesome. I bought it on a whim one day at Fye (music and DVD store) a few years ago because I had always heard so much hype about it. I got home and immediately put it on. I didn't quite understand it when it was over, so I had to watch a couple more times. The ending is really out of left field, and creepy.

MAJOR SPOILERS BELOW






Angela is secretly a boy, because her crazy nutcase aunt who is forced to raise him "always wanted a girl" and the very last shot of the film with her mouth gaping wide, making a snarling type of noise, and her eyes wide as can be looking off to the side is quite unsettling.



Parts 2 and 3 are complete garbage, don't waste your time.

Return to Sleepaway Camp (part 4) isn't as bad as parts 2 and 3 and it's not nearly as rememberable at part 1 but it's worth a watch if you rent it or download it from the internet.


I am proud to have the original Sleepaway Camp be a part of my DVD collection.

I brought this over to a "Bad Movie Night" once, (not that I think this movie is terrible or anything, it is just good for some laughs.) Everyone was enjoying it but not crazy over it, then when that last scene popped up everyone just flipped. It was sweet.

Then we watched Tammy and the T-Rex.

I just read that the last scene with Angela (you know the one I'm talking about) is not really the actress who played her, but a college student wearing a prosthetic mask that was taken of her face. (you can guess why they didn't use her body if you've seen the movie.....) pretty interesting little fact.

Interesting, indeed.

But does that mean the college student was shorter than me? I'm 5'6, Angela was what? 5'1 maybe?

Default Wow.

Peter was not gay. He was confused about gender roles in relationships, which I think is quite obvious. That is why he has those flashbacks. The children on the bed, Peter pointing at his sister.. His father in bed with another man.. All to convey Peters confusion. It has nothing to do with sex or sexuality. It has to do with gender identity and the roles men and women play in relationships.

the truth. I mean, how else would you reveal something like that? In the
sequels, it showed more affection towards girls than boys. Or maybe Angela is just experimenting....maybe its bisexual. I dont know, thats for the writers to figure out.
"It"? That's a little offensive. And I'm not even a trans- person. Peter was not an IT. Peter was a little boy forcibly raised as a little girl. A boy in girls clothing, that's all. He's a boy. People tend to forget that "Angela" was Peter. "Angela" was always a boy. Nothing more, nothing less.

Twist ending.. No previous thought? You obviously weren't paying attention to the first 86 minutes of the movie. But why would you, it being so horrible. Right?

It wasn't ripping off Friday the 13th. It's a horror movie that takes place at a camp. End of similarities. You're about the 1000th person to use that tired excuse of why the movie is so bad. You hated it. Fine. But it didn't rip off F13. Try A Blade in the Dark, A Reflection of Fear, Deadly Blessing, Private Parts, and Unhinged. If one similarity is all that's needed for one movie to rip off another, then Sleepaway Camp could have ripped off any one or all of those flicks by that logic.

And where did you get "split screen shot" from? There are no split screens in Sleepaway Camp.

Sounds like you weren't paying attention at all, to anything.

"Sleepaway Camp"......A surprise 80's hit and one of the alltime cheesy/campy and fun slashers. Even though there is some bad makeup effects, there is also some awesome grisly murder effects and sequences. Real bad acting, a unique and terrific storyline, and a shocking ending that will forever be remembered also highlight the film. Few standout performers are Karen Fields who plays "Judy" and Katherine Kamhi who plays "Meg". They were the best out of the whole cast. The guys who play "Gene", the lifegaurd "Hal", and "Billy" are all sexy and hot and worth mentions just for that. LOL!! This classic slasher cheese is so bad....that its good!!

7/10

Has a dark secret returned from the camp’s past…or will an unspeakable horror end the Summer season for all?

•New 2K scan of the original camera negative
•New Commentary with actors Felissa Rose (“Angela”) and Jonathan Tiersten (“Ricky”)
