Angela is back, in the form of an angry inner-city camper on the hunt for blood. Camp New Horizons, on the recycled grounds of the former murders, intends to pair high class teens with underclass counterparts. Angela, however, has a different plan.

She's back to SLASH last years record!
8 September 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

THE PLOT: Angela is heading back to camp! This time she is returning as a troubled city kid to Camp New Horizons. With half the campers from the streets and the other half spoiled rich kids, there is plenty of immoral activity going on.

Angela has big plans for this summer that she just can't put aside. Camp fires, archery, swimming, hiking, and murder...

THE ACTING: Better than the first and just as good as the second. Pamela Springsteen is great as usual as everyones favorite transsexual killer.

THE BLOOD: Not as bloody as the second but just as satisfying.

THE BODY COUNT: 15+

THE RATING: This was a pretty good movie. Although it was lacking in some areas it was better than the first "Sleepaway Camp". However, the second is still my favorite of the trilogy. For some funny, bloody, and disturbing moments I will give this movie a 7/10
