Well.....I thought it would never happen....but here we go! With shooting to begin next year, and with intentions of dismissing the two sequels (which is a good idea!), Return to Sleepaway Camp is on the horizon! I am not a big fan of sequels and I fear that Return to Sleepaway Camp will only reinforce my stance. While it will be great to see the original cast members again, does anyone really see this as being anything more than just a glorified straight to video hack job? I hate to sound so harsh, but I really don't see where they can take the story after that great ending from SC1. The original Sleepaway Camp was a once in a blue moon, strange and twisted flick with quirky characters that somehow managed to work despite its low budget roots. I hope that Return to Sleepaway Camp proves me wrong and adds something new and unexpected to the Sleepaway Camp legend, but my gut feeling is that it won't.

Yeah, i doubt that Return... will be near as good as the first one.
But then again, who knows? Maybe it turns out alright.

As for the sequels, i did enjoy part 2. I thought it was a ok slasher and had some decent and funny moments.

However, part 3 i didn't like too much, but i'm still planning on buying Anchor Bay's survival kit, whenever it's available.

Well....maybe some good news after all. The word on the street is that the proposed production for RETURN TO SLEEPAWAY CAMP has been cancelled. There should be more word on this in a few weeks. In the meantime, the "in production" page for RTSC on the IMDB has been taken down.

The footage stuck on that extra disc in the Survival Kit is absolutly terrible. There is not a doubt in my mind why this was cancelled mid-way through principle photography... it was a cheap hack-job-rip-off of I Spit On Your Grave... which has been done a zillion times since. The footage makes Brain Damage's films look like Oscar contenders.

Well, the footage on the "bonus" disc was an entirely different project from the just-recently stopped RTSC. Both projects were bad ideas.......hell, SLEEPAWAY CAMP II and III were bad ideas!

Never picked up the disc set for the exact sentiments above, my god! I remember Part II being slightly OK, but I remember nothing but bad from part III. Even Part I I'm hesitant of ever seeing again!

Sleepaway Camp 1 is great just because of the ending.

Sleepaway Camp 2 is kinda funny at parts and is overall okay. Worth watching only ONCE.

Sleepaway Camp 3 is pretty damn bad and I can't think of anything good to say about it.

The only good thing about these movies was the idea, and the posters! The boxset is a cool creative idea, but the movies all suck IMO.

Usually Part 1 gets some love. I loved it. Watching it on the DVD set shows that the original held up after all of these years.

I love all three of these movies, which is why I bought the boxed set a while ago.

Part 1 is the best, it's just great-- the ending is so shocking!

Part 2 was really good, Pamela Springsteen is soooo funny in both this and 3... this movie has some good death scenes and the humor is intentional, I think.

Part 3 is easily the least of the series, but I still enjoyed it. Once again, Pamela is excellent, she is a riot!

I didn't get a set that had that extra disc, but from what I have heard, that extra footage is horrible, so I'm not so anxious about seeing it.

I DO want to see the new one, though, if it ever comes out!

I kept thinking that this was already posted but, for what it's worth, the plot outline for RTSC from www.sleepawaycampmovies.com:

"It's summer camp as usual at Camp Manabe where the kids torment each other for fun while the underpaid camp staff provide as little supervision as possible. Greedy camp owner Frank (Vincent Pastore) and junior partner Ronnie (Paul DeAngelo) do their best to keep everyone in line, but something sinister is about to put a slash in the roster. When campers and staff mysteriously begin disappearing and turning into gruesome corpses, paranoid Ronnie can't shake the memory of a series of grisly murders that took place at Camp Arawak where he worked 2 decades ago. Has a "ghost" from the past come back to haunt him?
As the paranoia worsens, Ronnie's list of possible killers starts growing just like the body count. Everyone becomes a suspect from viscious kids to shady members of the camp staff, and even former Camp Arawak camper Ricky (Jonathan Tiersten) who mysteriously works nearby. Who is knocking off these victims and why? Only one thing is for certain, something is carving a bloody new trail at Sleepaway Camp where kids can be so mean and surviving this summer is gonna be a real killer!"

I liked the original SC movie. Since this has the cast and director returning it could be good.

It's me, Billy
09-19-2004, 11:46 PM
I'm not interested. I feel the original Sleepaway Camp is mediocre (not terrible, but not good) and since Return to Sleepaway Camp follows the original I feel that it probably won't be too good either. Now, I LOVE Sleepaway Camp 2: Unhappy Campers and Sleepaway Camp 3: Teenage Wasteland. I LOVE Pamela Springsteen. She was incredibly sexy and her portrayal of Angela was superb and a much welcome change over Felissa Rose. Renée Estevez (Molly Nagle from Part 2) also gives a great performance and like Pam Springsteen, she is very beautiful and sexy. With Parts 2 and 3, everything was 100% improved upon. More gore, lots of tits, much better music, much better actresses/actors, much better characters, and some very hilarious comedy. But what impressed me the most was Pamela Springsteen as Angela. Her whole personality and 'attitude' was wonderful, she had some great kills, and she was very beautiful. She really made the films enjoyable for me. God, she was good. The female nudity, which was non-existent in the original, was a major plus. I love the campgrounds and scenery in Parts 2 and 3; IMO much better than the camp presented in the original film. The comedy was wonderful too. Pam really dished it out as Angela. And remember "The Shit Sisters" from Part 2: Unhappy Campers?

"Oh, I'm a happy camper,
I love to drink and fuck.
And if you pay me money,
On my titties you can suck!"

Then you've got Michael J. Pollard and Sandra Dorsey as Herman and Lily Miranda, two of the dumbest (and funniest) camp counselors ever in Part 3: Teenage Wasteland. Herman is an old perv who enjoys frolicking with the young, big-breasted campers while his wife Lily is a fat, lazy pig. Funny shit. The fact that Part 3 gets dumped on so much by so many people both amazes and baffles me. It's a great film.

The thing that really pisses me off is that 'Return' ignores the events of Unhappy Campers and Teenage Wasteland. Robert Hiltzik, the director of the 1983 original, hates the films and decided to make a direct sequel to his 1983 sarcasm<masterpiece>sarcasm.

In short, I've never been a fan of the original 'Sleepaway.' Parts 2 (Unhappy Campers) and 3 (Teenage Wasteland) are what attracted me to this series. Both of them are just so much fun-and very hilarious.

It's a shame Pamela Springsteen isn't acting anymore. She's the only Angela for me.

Ravenheart
09-19-2004, 11:51 PM
I've enjoyed all 3 movies so far but the first is my favorite.What bothered me about 2 and 3 is why all of a sudden did Angela become a female Freddy Kruger popping off smart remarks when she killed someone?I prefered Angela in the first one so I'm glad this one will be more like the first.

While I liked the first movie, I'm very disappointed that they are making Return to Sleepaway Camp seem as if parts 2 and 3 don't exist. I loved the sequels and thought that the humor, great death scenes, random nudity, and quirky characters were all requirements of great slasher films. I will see this movie, and it does have a promising story line, but I can't help feeling that I will be let down. I do hope however, that they keep going with the series and that the plot for the abandoned part 4 will someday be completed. This is my favorite slasher series and put into the right hands, many more good sequels can be made.

Cujo108
09-26-2004, 03:30 AM
While I like the sequels, they can't hold a candle to the original, which is easily one of my favorite slasher films. The tone, the characters, the setting, and the quirkiness are all so perfect in the original. Despite liking the sequels, I have no problem with them being disregarded, and look forward to a film similar to the first. Hopefully it'll actually manage to see the light of day.

Mild spoiler...and if you have already visited the above link to the stills, then no spoiler at all.......

Having a character named "Pee-Pee" and mocking the same mannerisms as Angela from the original Sleepaway Camp has to be either the worst screenwriting job in recent memory....or the lamest red herring in modern cinema.

i saw 2 and 3 a long time before i ever saw the original, so to me the sequels hold a special place in my heart. i loved the cheesy one-liners that Angela dished out, i loved the ways she killed people..very original(mostly), i liked the characters, i liked the nudity.....i only saw the original late last year. it was cool and a more serious movie than the sequels and the ending would've been awesome if i hadn't already heard about it. but still a decently creepy movie. it almost seems like the sequels and the original are different movie franchises. all in all though, i think i liked the sequels more. maybe only because i saw them a 1000 times before i saw the original.
anyway, i'm looking forward to the new movie. it will be horribly bad, but that will make it really good!

Oh yeah, this isn't the crying game (well sort of). Like one of the above posters I enjoy the sequels more because of their campyness. As long as it has the tits and blood and hopefully one b-movie actor/celebrity relative I'll be happy.

I just watched part 3: Teenage Wasteland again today. What a great '80s slasher it is. It's not scary at all, but it's a lot of fun. Pam Springsteen's Angela is one of the best horror villans ever.

The Anchor Bay DVD looked great on my 60 inch HDTV.

“The next one is called SLEEPAWAY CAMP REUNION,” van Dell tells Fango, “and it’s the last one in our trilogy,” which ignores the late ’80s’ SLEEPAWAY CAMP II and III."
Well, that's good, at least. I love the original but parts 2 and 3 didn't do much for me. Still, I have pretty low expectations for this one.

What happened to this film??

I just watched Unhappy Campers for the first time yesterday and I totally loved it! I can't wait to see part 3 now!! Pamela Springsteen rocked my world :D

That said, I also think that the original is a very underrated film. It's an oddity in the slasher genre from so many standpoints. I actually did a paper which focused a little bit on it for a film-genre class I took (and I got a 9 out of 10 for it :D yeah for me!) so maybe that's why I appreciate it so much, but it's really a film you can dig into and analyze without going overboard. There's a lot of interesting stuff Hiltzik put in there!

ps. that isn't Pamela on the poster for Unhappy Campers? 'Cos it sure don't look like her!

Sixth 'Sleepaway Camp' Plans Major Reunion

Some odd news came into B-D this weekend as we've received word that Sleepaway Camp writer/director Robert Hiltzik isn't finished with the franchise, even though Return to Sleepaway Camp has yet to be completed. 'Camper 101' informs us that Hiltzik is planning a Sleepaway Camp Reunion as the sixth entry in the franchise. The film follows the events of Return to Sleepaway Camp and focuses on the long-awaited return of Aunt Martha as well as Ricky and Angela Baker! More news as it comes in, but we suspect we won't hear much until Return to Sleepaway Camp finally gets released.

Bloody Disgusting (or Bloody Awful as I call them) simply reposted speculation on my SCReunion page that the title and tagline of the flick would suggest a return of Aunt Martha - this was also reposted at places far and wide as IMDB as fact.

"Berserk" is (will be?) Michael Simpson's sequel to the sequels, so to speak:

I hope it happens - I dig the script and am working on some storyboards for it lately, but as with any movie project - it'll happen if it happens. Certain elements will be in place by the end of the year, so I suspect we'll know next year if it's a solid go or no.

'Return to Sleepaway Camp' Coming This October?!

SLEEPAWAY CAMP star Felissa Rose just revealed via her MySpace blog that the long, long, long delayed Return to Sleepaway Camp is finally arriving on DVD this October. " I was just told that will be out on DVD in October," she writes. "Sounds pretty good, from a reliable source. I will post more info as I receive it." Directed by Robert Hiltzik, it's summer camp as usual at Camp Manabe where the kids torment each other for fun while the underpaid camp staff provide as little supervision as possible. Greedy camp owner Frank (Vincent Pastore) and junior partner Ronnie (Paul DeAngelo) do their best to keep everyone in line, but something sinister is about to put a slash in the roster. When campers and staff mysteriously begin disappearing and turning into gruesome corpses, paranoid Ronnie can't shake the memory of a series of grisly murders that took place at Camp Arawak where he worked 2 decades ago. Has a "ghost" from the past come back to haunt him?

Holy shit, that looks terrible!! :lol:

rhett
07-28-2008, 05:31 AM
:lol: What? The whole movie looks like a really, really long prologue. Usually the template it's: X gets emotionally tortured as a child and comes back for revenge. In Sleepaway Camp: Return to Sleepaway Camp (I think that's the title now), it's: X gets an egg thrown against his back, whipped, slapped in the face by a councilor, pushed on a stage blindfolded and naked, thrown into the dirt by some bullies, his nuts grabbed by a woman, shot naked with paint balls and THEN gets his revenge. But at the start he's the bully. Talk about a conflict of pathos!

Oh, and isn't Angela supposed to be the lead in this?

Still, no matter how much of a mess that trailer is, it still looks like some baaaad fun. Seeing that old campground again was a really welcomed bit of nostalgia. There's even the black chef! Sign me up, baldy.

I'm guessing that movie will never come to fruition then. Disappointing, as as bad as it looked, it probably would have been a hell of a lot better then this turd. Sleepaway Camp without Angela is like Friday the 13th without Jason. Oh wait, I mean Friday the 13th 2 and up without Jason.:D

Title aside (does this REALLY count as a Sleepaway Camp movie?), this looks like pure cheesy fun to me. It seems like it's really got the whole 80s teen sex comedy/slasher vibe going for it, which is nice.

I have to agree with rhett about the fat kid, though. We basically see him being a dick to everyone, then people are dicks to him back so he goes off and starts killing people? Really weird.

Don't see this movie for gore, cause it doesn't have much but this movie is totally bizzare it so many ways I can't even begin to explain.
It's like the movie is VERY self aware of what it is trying to do but totally works.
It looks terrible but it's part of it's charm. I mean the start of the movie has like 13 year old boys haning out in there underpants lighting farts with some of the most outragous lines of dialogue.

Holy shit...I just finished this, and it's fucking BRILLIANT!! I had a complete blast during nearly the entire runtime. It's one of the best bad films I've seen in a REALLY long time. The acting is so over-the-top and the premise so ridiculous that it just oozes bad movie charm. The killer is hilariously obvious as well, which really reminds me of many low-budget 80's slashers. Toss in awful dialogue, nice practical FX, and the fact that it looks and sounds like it came straight out of the 80's, and you really can't wrong.

It's awesomely bad, and I loved pretty much every second of it. This shit made me laugh harder than any comedy I've seen over the past couple years.

Is it anything like the original? No, not really. This one is more of a slapstick, which reminded me somewhat of Camp Slaughter (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0462220/).

The DVD is nicely done. The 16x9 progressive-encoded transfer looks quite good, and there's plenty of extras. A commentary track with Robert Hiltzik would have been nice to listen in on, but oh well.

After about three scenes with that damn Alan shit, I glanced towards my liquor cabinet thinking it's contents could help dull my criticisms but noticed it was only 1:30 in the afternoon and decided otherwise. Being a big fan of the first film, I wanted to like this, but found none of the humor remotely funny or unique.

Sure, I know this was made all in good fun and for the fans, but could they have made the "surprise ending" any more obvious?

What a mess it is, but that's what you get when you ignore everything important and spend all your time making fun of people, slacking ass, smoking pot and raising hell...which perfectly describes my own childhood experience, lol.
The gestures and expressions on the faces of the kids were just priceless, every one of them...I felt like smacking a whole bunch of characters, not just Alan. The style is so unusual with a dash of The 3 Stooges. Great fun.

My god, I haven't wanted to harm a movie character this badly since RENT.

I'm glad you guys liked it and all, but this one is not for me apparently.

Hehe, you watched RENT :D just kidding.....but seriously..


I just shelled out a 20 for this (BB). I havent watched it yet but I really do have high hopes. Gunna make it a friday night viewing so I REALLY hope it doesnt, well, suck. I just have a good feeling after watching the trailers that it has that 80's charm to it. Even the sets and characters look like they catch that 80's vibe and it doesnt look too sci-fi originalish. Fingers Crossed!

Is it at least better than Hatchet?

It is, actually (but what isn't?). Instead of the "ha-ha, I'm a self-conscious copy of a bad Z-grade slasher from the 80s, see me attempt to spoof them in what I think are witty ways!" attitude of "Hatchet" and other similarly awful films of recent years, this one has a "I am a resurrected, bad Z-grade slasher from the 80s, and I'm proud of it" attitude, which actually works for it. It's still a terrible film, but an amusing one, unlike "Hatchet" and its ilk.

I agree. I dont get why its getting such bad reviews everywhere. I had a great time watching it. A lot of people are saying how much they hated the fat kid and how annoying he was but I think that was the whole point. This movie worked on so many levels, it is a so bad its good movie. I will definetly watch it again sometime, unlike hatchet, decent, and all the other hyped up garbage I have wasted my money on. Recommended.

Alan was both horrible and hysterical all at the same time. This was the most anticipated movie of the year for me. A terrible, but great, film. Where has Hiltzik been all these years? I watched the original first for the upteenth time tonight and then put this in the player. A great time. Here's hoping for a followup sequel.

I absolutely loved it. Went it hyped and not let down one bit. No surprises in the film, beyond how endlessly entertaining it all is. They don't make films like this anymore, but Hilzik sure does.

I agree that Alan was a great character. I thought there were lots of great supporting bits, too. The bunk bed kill is astounding. The kid screaming with the panties on his head is priceless. Angela is a MILF in the post title sequence, which also has a good kill.

You're a...PENIS!

Haha, what a good time. It's like Hiltzik directed this a year after the first film, because the location and more importantly the presentation hasn't changed a bit. This is definitely the most retro experience I've ever had watching a contemporary film...it's like the eighties slasher never died. Alan is indeed a riot to watch - he's sort of like a nerdy Ricky...no matter what the case, he always ends up spazzing out. Why is Isaac Hayes in this? It was great to see a bunch of the returning cast. I knew Ricky and Angela were back, but the New Yawk counselor? Yes! Not quite as jacked as before, but still holding his own on the pectoral front.

There was nothing surprising about the story at all, but since it doesn't weigh itself down in the tragedy of the first film, it's a much lighter and quicker paced film. Hiltzik has the teenage expletive down pat...there is seriously so much toilet humor here it makes the first film look like Balto by comparison. While most of the effect sequences are [normal shot of person] cut away [gory shot of dead person], the effects themselves are pretty solid.

I certainly wasn't expecting much, other than incomprehensibility based on the trailer, and I've come out a huge fan. Definitely worth the wait for Sleepaway fans, and a solid second place in the franchise behind the first. Hopefully another is forthcoming, but at the pace these come at, that'll be 2020.

I don't think I have had enough booze in my life to enjoy this movie.

There were a few scenes and jokes that worked well enough, but for the most part it was just boring and suffered from a real lack of killing. With characters that annoying, you need to let the blood flow frequently and often if you are going to keep me on your team.

This is by far my least favorite of the series.

Well, I really just wanted to be in this movie somewhere as I have been a huge supporter of the original for years. I drive up in mid-october 2003 (the night before kill bill vol. 1 opened). I got to the camp around 7:00pm, went to wardrobe, got my Manabe shirt and talked to Paul Deangelo and big pussy then sat in the mess hall from 7:30 till midnight when everyone shooting the burning scene (including felissa in full male cop gear) came in for cafeteria style dinner, we had chicken sandwiches and chips then they all headed back out to shoot more while we kept waiting finally at 6AM they called us down to the waterfront to shoot our stuff. there was 3 takes of us 'looking at the body being zipped up' and the kids in their boxers were wrapped in blankets between takes as it was freezing that night. Robert was friendly and i had a geekout moment in my head when he was directing us; when i was 15 back in the early 90's i used to watch sleepaway camp with my buddy EVER DAY. So being directed by robert in my mid twenties who a full circle exerience for me. after my stuff was shot i walked around the camp with Jeff Hayes, who i had known for a couple years from the SC reunion in NY, and we checked out some of the other filming locations like Ronnies shack then i drove back to PA. the end.

"Return" was ultimately an entertaining little camp slasher endeavor,but what I saw on the DVD certainly didn't explain the release lag.As for the specific delay for "improved effects",stoner weed's(Adam Wylie)demise was the only truly disturbing gag in the flick.That boy paid for his substance-abusing ways-in full.The scene did harken back to the beloved Pam Sprinsteen sequels,with the drug-free admonition over the taped mouth,but even that made me smile. I found Bella the foodhound's end to be hysterical,as well as satisfying.Good to see a little diversity character-wise,and the one thing that girl did bring to camp was attitude(not to mention every snack cake in existence).Nice blood flow from the nail-embedded body,the MPAA usually would be all over that . Most everyone else(head in a birdcage,for Chris's sake?!)should have approved his/her death before signing on.Really,they should've.

The campers were effectively mean-spirited,(antagonistic,at the very least).TC (Chris Shand)was a decent jerk,though he could've gone farther to torment Alan..the look was right,but he seemed too nice at times,almost like his real personality was bleeding through.Petey seemed like a caricature to me.Worst of all-ALAN!!Is he a frightened fatboy-wimp,or a secret bunkmate bully?I get that he was constantly being picked on by the older,tougher staff and peers,and transferred the mistreatment right back to the younger ones..but something didn't gel.The whole"Your ass stinks" line was just..yeah.Was it the actors?The lines handed to them?(Both?)Call me nuts,but I believed in every one of the original actors' portrayals.M-E-G was a bitch of the highest order.

On the other hand,I doubt I'm alone when I admit to preferring the "every camp has asshole kids,not everyone deserves messy death " approach of the first.In Hiltzik's original,even cool kids like Paul eventually found their asses mutilated.Granted,he fucked up royally involving himself with Judy the scumbag for twenty minutes of the movie,but he seemed like a good guy who sort of wandered off the main camp trail and found himself at the slut's doorstep without really knowing how he got there.Angela's confused sexuality thang also played into the ultra-creepy waterfront climax(bringing me to another sorely missed element in the new installment,the twisted bi-sexuality of the original),but the guy just didn't deserve to end up with his smiling face resting against crazy boy's junk."Return had no sympathetic characters,no one to identify with.Even would-be Final Girl Karen's status as a follower made her unlikable,and therefore fair game.

Also,why did so many deserving of graphic disfigurement live through the massacre?The blonde bimbo lifeguard with inflatable hoo-ha's?Ugly panties-on-the-head boy(a panty-raid themed slaying ,which the trailer lead me to believe would befall him,would've been super)Karen the skank?Marie?The annoying kitchen assistant who called Alan "Fatty-fat-fat"?..need I go on?Lets raise that body count!

The bastard camp employees got off too easy,too.. who the hell edited that dick-ripping scene?Fifteen minutes of build-up,then nah-thing?No prosthetic weenie dragging and bumping along the ground behind the jeep?Linda,still alive and gurgling with nary a drop of gore,aside from the red paint application under the rubber barbed wire?

Lovely Felissa Rose was a welcome addition to the cast,but wasn't she like,way over the top,screaming her lines?And that freeze-frame in mid-laugh?It was..spoofy,dammit!Jonathan Tiersten,you've never been a great thespian,its true..but your "homage" cry of "ANGELLLLAAAA!" was unnecessary and ridiculous.Worked better when you were twelve.The current bleach/dye job should earn you a nice place as bitch of the week at the local S&M club.Hiltzik,what happened?Two or three gruesome deaths do not a great slasher make.

Lastly in my rant,where was the sex?The skinny-dip scenes?I don't recall so much as a bra shot,and these chicks were endowed.Give me extra meat and cheese on my tacos,or don't give them to me at all.

Bottom-line-I'd rather have it than not.Its a fun,mediocre slasher that brings back old favorites,and introduces a few new ones.Enjoy it for what it is.

While I did crack up a bunch of times during this movie, seeing Alan on screen after about 20 minutes made me cringe. Such a "nails on a chalkboard" performance that just annoyed the living shit out of me. Reminded me of my little brother when we were kids, which didn't help at all.

The kills were fun (when they actually happened) and I'm glad they brought some old cast members back, but overall the constant torment and whining of Alan really turned me off to this movie. It seemed like it never ended.

09-28-2009, 08:17 AM
I just got done watching this and I have to say overall, it was all right.

I don't think it's any worse than the other films in the series, aside from the first film, the sequels are pretty much what this is...with some few minor differences.

You can say whatever you want about this film but it does feel closer to the first film than any of the original sequels do. Unfortunately, it's made about 20 years too late and feels almost half assed.

The biggest qualm for me about this movie was you didn't like ANYONE, not even the poor tortured Alan. He's just as much of an instigator as the rest of them are and everytime he opens his mouth, you know someone's going to do something to him. That's the other thing, something's ALWAYS happening to him. I don't think there is one frame of this film where this kid isn't being picked on by someone including the counselors who are supposed to be caring for him.

Now I've never been to summer camp before, but I can almost bet counselors don't take pleasure in watching a kid nearly drown or get stripped down in front of everyone so they can all gawk at him. I know it's supposed to be this great big thing where Alan "snaps" after so much, but I mean come on - it's every other scene for crying out loud. Not that I was expecting any bit of character development but jeez the only reason you know anyone in this film is because their name may be mentioned more than once or they've returned from the original film. Not to mention there is not a single character you feel an iota of sympathy for with maybe the exception of one or two of the counselors - the one accused of being Angela, I can't remember her name because her part is so brief or Ronnie who I think can handle his own, but you can't help yourself. Everyone else is just slasher fare which although is pretty typical, you can usually find at least ONE main character who you can stick to. That's the whole idea isn't it?

The other thing this film lacked was any bit of a story - I know I'm beating a dead horse here - but all we're subjected to is a scene with someone or multiple people picking on Alan, someone dying, Alan getting picked on, someone dying, rinse, repeat until done. That's the entire film in a nutshell.

With that said, I still didn't mind it. It's your basic run of the mill slasher, nothing worse or better than the sequels or the original film in this series or any of the other FRIDAY THE 13TH knock offs that followed.

I really was expecting the worst when I saw this, judging by all the negative reviews I read when it came out I'm sure everyone can understand why, but I just decided to give it a shot and I'm not thrilled I did, but I'm not disappointed either.

Aghhh... I don't know what to think of this film, and I can't decide whether I hated it or liked it, although as of now I'm leaning on the not so good side.

Not one of the character's was the least bit likeable. Allan, the kid you should feel bad for is just as much of a prick and annoying as the characters tormenting him, so you never feel bad for him in the slightest. What kind of camp is this by the way? Some of the kids were 12 or 13 while some of the others were young adults. I was confused as some of the kids looked like they were the same age as the counsellors watching them. Is it a camp for troubled teens!? The dialog was beyond awful and the story... well there was none.

On the other hand, as awful as the dialog was, it was also quite humorous because of how stupid it was and the kills were pretty good. It was like watching a train wreck, you are just hypnotized by its awfulness and can't look away. I will also admit that where many films have failed this one actually feels like it was shot in the 80s. It easily would fit in with the other three films, although at the bottom of the pile for me, but still impressive to pull that off.

Anyway, I'm in no rush to run out and watch this one again like the first and second film, but I will probably watch it again within the next few years.
