But really, from the opening scene, you know you are in for one sweet and (unintentionally)funny ride. If you haven't seen it, let me go over the very beginning.
Hair helmet sporting lifeguard lends boat to cute but inattentive girl. Both fail to hear pleas from the waterskiing
girl(who no doubt gradutated from the William Shatner school of acting) who has spotted a man and his two children in the water after capsizing their boat. From the ultra fake body which gets run over to the lament filled utterance "John" by the man's "significant other" to the girl screaming so loudly you would think she was the one who was run over...I haven't laughed this hard in a while.
And it gets better after that.
Witness the obscenity filled male softball game with players in the ranging in the ages of 9 to 25!
Witness men walking around in their underwear alot more than they should at a camp for little kids!
Witness the girl who gets hit by a water ballon drop like she has just been shot!
Witness Mel(who looks like a crack addicted Norman Fell) put on the most dramatic performance of 1983!
You think Johnny and gang from the Karate Kid were mean? Check out this gang!(Guys and Girls!)
Shockingly funny ending! I won't give it away here, but it just seems like it fits with the rest of the weirdness of the film.
Get some beer, get some friends, enjoy the campiness.
What parent wouldn't want to send their little angel to Camp Arawak? The guy who runs the place is a dirty old man, the head cook's a pedophile, and the counselors are worse than the kids. Here, your child can take part in water balloon fights atop a sloping roof, wander out into the lake to skinny dip or dump his canoe passengers any time night or day, and be as mean to the other kids as he wants. Yep, this is a great place for kids to go camping. One kid who does not enjoy the experience, however, is Angela (Felissa Rose), who is sent there along with her cousin Ricky (Jonathan Tiersten) by Aunt Martha. Martha is a strange one; she looks weird, she talks weird, and she's completely loony tunes - but she has been Angela's guardian ever since a tragic boating accident made her an orphan. It's no wonder - after all she's been through - that Angela is shy and withdrawn among the other kids at Camp Arawak.Read more ›
Sleepaway camp is one of those movies that has cheesey and over-the-top acting, plenty of stereo types, but somehow it all works.
This movie is about a girl named Angela and her cousin Ricky going away to summer camp. It of course is supposed to be a lot of fun. But Angela is very shy and doesn't want to talk to anyone or play any games or anything so she is picked on a good deal. And not to far after they get to camp, people start to die.
Its pretty clear who is the killer from the get-go, but it still keeps you interested because its a fun movie, and you keep wondering "WHY?" are they killing. It actually has a nasty little twist of an ending too. And the sad thing is, that what happened to the killer isn't far from what has happened to some people(seen a similar case on dateline, except without all the murders).
I didn't think this movie was slow, but I don't have a short attention span either. But I'd say that if you like horror movies, or movies that are so bad their good, then you'll like "Sleepaway Camp", its worth at least one view, its pretty darn funny(unintenionally most of the time.). The gore is pretty good too, its not to explicit so it leaves some to the imagination, but it shows just enough. All in all, worthwhile horror film. :D
God Bless & *enjoy* ~Amy
As much as I like bad horror movies, this one is just too bad to be any good. And its entire cult following can be owed to the fact that it mimics the feel of the far superior Friday the 13th.

Anyone who experienced the 1980's era of camp slasher flicks might find this to their liking.
Sleepaway Camp is a mediocre attempt at trying to capitalize on the genre... Read more
I love bad, cheesy movies and I'm glad this one finally got the blu-ray treatment. The shots during the day actually look really good for a low-budget 80's horror flick but some of... Read morePublished on July 16 2014 by Denny L
