An unknown killer, clad in World War II U.S. Army fatigues, stalks a small New Jersey town bent on reliving a 35 year-old double murder by focusing on a group of college kids holding an annual Spring Dance.
A decades-old folk tale surrounding a deranged murderer killing those who celebrate Valentine's Day turns out to be true to legend when a group defies the killer's order and people start turning up dead.
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. Written by

Emilio and Charlie take nude photos of the girls from outside their cabin, but when Angela looks at the pictures later in the film, the pictures have clearly been taken by someone inside the cabin. See more »
I'm a fan of the original Sleepaway Camp and this sequel is utterly lousy. Parts of the movie occasionally qualify for that "so-bad-it's-funny" entertaining quality, but that's the only slightly redeeming aspect. Other than that, this film is so sleazy that I felt the need to shower afterwards!
Angela kills for no reason whatsoever, just murder for murder's sake. At least she uses a bit of creative variety, I'll give her that. The effects are laughable and the 25-30 year old actors trying to portray young teens really make you shake your head. The immaturity and idiocy of the characters wouldn't even have been believable if it were a camp of Kindergarten kids.
Invest your time more wisely than this!
