Riding the coattails of Friday the 13th camp movies. However, this one finds a way to stand out. That ending, I’ll never forget my reaction!
Cult classic known for its shock ending. But it’s a very clear cut definition of what a b-movie slasher is, and you get what you expect!
A cult classic slasher movie that delivers on gore, suspense, and campy humor. The movie features a memorable cast of characters.
Incredibly campy but a lot of fun. The twist is insane, there’s some ingenuity behind the kills, and the kid actors sell it well.
From 8 to 12 years old I was a white boy who spent 4 or 8 weeks (age dependent) at a camp called kooch-i-ching, real place in Minnesota
You’ll probably hate it. If you can hang in there, you’ll understand why it’s eked out a place in peoples’ memories. And maybe you love it.
I thought it was a great movie that was a mix of Friday 13th and scream with the mystery of who the killer obvious but a unpredictable twist
Decent camp horror movie. End was shocking. Cheesy typical 80s horror movie. 7/10
This is pure 80s slasher nostalgia for me. The ending messed me up as a kid. Definitely not for everyone.
Friday the 13th-esque slasher film, interesting movie with a very surprising ending.
After a terrible boating accident, Angela Baker is sent to Camp Arawak, where a series of bizarre and violent "accidents" begin to claim the lives of various campers.
Angela Baker escapes from a mental hospital and surfaces at a summer camp as a counselor who lectures her teenage charges on proper moral behavior. Those teens who break her strict rules -- from the camp chatterbox or a sex-obsessed girl to the boys who are peeping Toms -- are murdered by the impostor in various gruesome ways. As more campers go missing, intrepid counselor Molly begins to piece together the truth.
Psychotic Angela is itching to do what she does best: slaughter dozens of teenage campers. As luck would have it, the previous site of her murders has been renamed and converted into an experimental summer camp meant to bring together privileged and lower-class teens. On the day the youths are boarding the buses to camp, Angela runs over a potential camper with a garbage truck and assumes her identity. Once she has infiltrated the camp, the real terror begins.
It's summer camp as usual at Camp Manabe where the kids torment each other for fun while the underpaid camp staff provides as little supervision as possible. Greedy camp owner Frank and junior partner Ronnie 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. As the paranoia worsens, Ronnie's list of possible killers starts growing just like the body count. 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!
Allison Kramer suffers recurring nightmares and selective amnesia, returning to camp to discover the truth as the secrets of infamous killer Angela Baker are revealed. [Production for this sequel to 'Sleepaway Camp III' (1989) was shut down after Double Helix Films went bankrupt in 1992, though the film was officially completed using archive footage and released on-demand beginning in 2012.]
