The Girls of Phi Kappa Sigma thought the legend of Billy was a joke. The sorority begans receiving deranged phone calls which frightens them and leads to multiple missing members of Phi Kappa Sorority.
The film began production in 1992, but while filming the production company, Double Helix Films, went bankrupt and production was shut down. The existing footage was put together and included as a Best Buy exclusive bonus disk in the 2002 Sleepaway Camp Survival Kit DVD box set. See more »
Sleepaway 4 was planned in 1992 to tie together the very different chapters of the series into one cohesive story by dealing with the mysteries via a character of a young woman who may or may not be Angela (she claims to have amnesia) going back to where the killings happened. Someone tries to rape her like Artie did, then the murders begin all over again in the isolation of the deserted forest.
Unfortunately after filming a few scenes they shut down due to various troubles the company was going through. Some claim it was the quality of the footage that shut it down but the company actually shut all their films down that were in production at the time.
Cut to many years later when a webmaster thankfully tracked down the footage and got it released on DVD. While to the average joe who knows nothing about how movies are shot, all the endless takes will be boredom enducing, but to hardcore fans, the unedited footage is GOLD. Just the making of a few of the quite (read: cheap to shoot) scenes in what was to be a gory masterpiece had it "Survived". But nethertheless a glimpse at what could have been.
