Love Angela's Rap Song...
20 August 2004 | by (Stockton, UK) – See all my reviews

The third in the series is still fun, maybe not as much as pt 2, but good unwholesome fun anyway. At an experimental camp (Camp New Horizons) good teens and bad teens are put together to try to relate or something by these useless counselors who don't do anything. Except that for unknown reasons one of the teens isn't who they claim to be - yep, Angela's come back to the same camp where she killed 19 people the year before.

This is one a little weak, the opening bit with the garbage truck doesn't really make any sense, neither did Angela's fake ID card. But who watches these movies for stuff like that anyway?

It doesn't take Angela long to find people who aren't camper material, and start doing away with them and generally having a blast at the same time. The scene were Angela stands in the mess hall and has flashbacks to pt 2 were great, I think it's the only scene in the film were we get some sense of the character (only wants to be a real camp counselor and be liked).

Anyway the deaths are fun (trimmed down though), and Pamela Springsteen is always fun to watch in these movies, she's pretty much let down this time by lame campers who deserve to get it, sorry, but Melanie Griffith's sister doesn't do much, it's like Angela said at the end of the film "try to be nice to some people..."
