Storyline

Angela Baker has undergone years of therapy, electro-shock and sexual reassignment surgeries, and finally landed herself a job in the last place she should be working - camp rolling hills. She has an old fashioned approach as to how camp should be, and an old familiar deadly way of making sure that those who don't follow her rules don't get to come back next summer.

Happy Slashing!
2 November 2005 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

100% female and waving around the certificate of goody-goody Girl Scout, Angela signs in as a counselor at Rolling Hills summer camp. She's determined to make it a fun summer for everyone, singing Kumbaya-songs around the fire and all, but she keeps on having conflicts with rebellious and sex-hungry teenagers. In order to uphold the camp's happy spirit, Angela has no other option but to send the rotten apples home. Of course "sending people home" in Angela's book means slaughtering them brutally… Talking in terms of 80's slashers, the original "Sleepaway Camp" (released in 1983) is a classic. Along with a selected group of other titles (like "Prom Night", "Friday the 13th" and "The Prowler"), the original is a film that every self-respecting horror fan simply has to see. This first sequel isn't nearly as 'essential', but it still stands as a highly enjoyable and relaxing film. The script contains absolutely no tension or plot-twists, since you already know the culprit's identity from the beginning, so all the excitement depends on the various methods by which the teenager are killed off. Angela uses drills, strings of a guitar, car battery-acid, campfires and there even is an entire act in which campers battle dressed up like horror icons Jason Vorhees, Freddy Krueger and Leatherface! The biggest trump of "Sleepaway Camp" is that it never takes itself too seriously and it has absolutely no ambition to be a compelling film. All in one, a light-hearted movie with gore, nudity and an attractive cast. You simply can't expect more from a movie like this.
