so is evilspeak worth getting???
another sleepaway review
I dont believe he saw the twist coming a mile off without prior knowledge
Fucking guy sucks.
I've had a couple friends guess the twist correctly after the flashback scene. But that reviewer is... wow. Terrible. My favorite film of all time + that reviewer = an unhappy me.
Oh yeah that reviewer is kind of a moron. Go look at his other reviews. Doesn't seem to take into account that a lot of these films were low budget and gives the PQ really low ratings on a lot of films. He gave Sleepaway Camp a B- for image quality? That's harsh.
He also completely missed the point of Sleepaway Camp. It's MEANT to be as absurd as it is.
I can't wait to pop in the Sleepaway Camp blu and check it out after years of the sub par AB disc. It has always been a favorite of mine. I even provided the 16mm TV spots on the new blu ray.
That's pretty awesome.
I think so. It's a decent film. Higher production values than most independant horror films being pumped out at the time and Clint Howard gives a pretty convincing performance.
The Blu package is nice. There are some scenes missing, but they aren't integral to the story.
Yeah, and he's not some kid, either. He mentions seeing Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981, so even if he was only like 7 years old, that would make him 40 today. In other words, old enough to be aware of the era of low budget "B-movies", where sometimes the acting and production values were not up to the highest standards but the earnestness of the filmmakers was. They were genuinely trying to make the best movie they could with the resources they had. You can't view those kind of movies with the same eye that you use for a big-budget blockbuster.
That's not to say all low-budget horror movies from the era were good, in fact a lot were total crap. But I don't think Sleepaway Camp falls into that category. Although as I've said before, part of my love of SC is the nostalgia (both good and bad) of my summer camp days in that very same era. Perhaps our reviewer pal never went to a summer camp in upstate NY in the late 70s/early 80s, or maybe he'd see how much the filmmakers got right.
Yeah, he does not seem to catch on that Sleepaway Camp's bizarre tone is completely intentional. I thought it was a fluke of genius on first watch, but now that I'm older it's pretty easy to discern that everything is deliberately placed. Just look at the tableau at the water balloon scene. That guys need to take a shower... or a wicked dump.
he's a witch! :lol:
Final Exam fans. check this find out, really cool here..
I suppose I should see it again. I remember seeing it on cable in the 80s (only once, which is odd for 80s cable considering how often they ran stuff. Joke: Do you know what HBO stands for? Hey, Beastmaster's On). I thought it was pretty cool.
Then I saw it again on the '04 DVD, and immediately sold it back to the place I got it from. For some reason it didn't resonate with me as an adult, compared to seeing it as a teenager.
I saw evilspeak on HBO at 8pm on a Friday night in june of 1983, and thought it was cool as shit. even the R rated version which is what they shown, didn't know it was chopped up at the time I was only 10, so r rated movies were cool.. Then I rented it in the mid 90's having not seen it since 83, and man, I could tell it was heavily chopped... didn't have the same impact it did was I was 10.
Watched Evilspeak tonight, Well worth a purchase. The extras alone are fantastic.
Tell me my ASS, there's my fucking crowbar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AWESOME!!!! Thanks so much for posting that! :glasses:
R.G. Armstrong = Legend
When he's about to do away with Coopersmith's dog and Stanley says "No! Please!" ....and R.G. responds with a sarcastic "Pleeeeeease"...
His delivery of that line is one of the most terrifying things I've ever seen lol.
Does anyone know if the Blu-ray of Sleepaway Camp sports the full cut, bare-asses running down the dock and all?
