It's summer camp as usual at Camp Manabe where the kids torment each other for fun while the underpaid camp staff provides as little supervision as possible. Greedy camp owner Frank and junior partner Ronnie do their best to keep everyone in line, but something sinister is about to put a slash in the roster. When campers and staff mysteriously begin disappearing and turning into gruesome corpses, paranoid Ronnie can't shake the memory of a series of grisly murders that took place at Camp Arawak, where he worked two decades earlier. Has a ghost from the past come back to haunt him? As the paranoia worsens, Ronnie's list of possible killers starts growing just like the body count. Everyone becomes a suspect from vicious kids to shady members of the camp staff, and even former Camp Arawak camper Ricky who mysteriously works nearby. Who is knocking off these victims and why? Only one thing is for certain, something is carving a bloody new trail at Sleepaway Camp where kids can be so mean ... Written by

This movie is brilliant, when I first watched it I thought it actually was an 80s movie because it looks and is exactly like that. I had to double and triple check that this was the 2008 movie as I couldn't believe it at first. This is how they should always make horror movies!!!
I was really surprised when I came here and saw a relatively low rating and bad reviews. Okay, I don't mind if a person give it a 5, I can see why some people mightn't like it that much, but who on earth is giving lower than 5s? It's hard to believe that, they don't seem like fans of the original if that's their attitude as this is very close to the original in a lot of ways and better than it in some.
I have to admit, I hated the "fart" scene at the beginning of the movie as well as many others. I also thought there were too many shots of boys in states of undress... and the whole thing is quite campy.
I totally get that the fat kid with the frogs is very weird and makes things a bit uncomfortable and outrageous at times.... it's called ORIGINALITY. It's called being different. It's viewing something new that you didn't see tons of times before. The fat kid is like a monstrosity, like some weird ****.... which is what horror movies are all about. I think that as the movie wore on the fat kid scenes got better, less stupid. Again if this is all not your cup of tea, fine, but it's certainly not a "bad" movie whatever way you look at it!!!
The death scenes were amazing, I don't think anyone will have qualms about these. One of them dragged a little, that's it.
The characters weren't overly "mean" to each other, sure things got very heated at times... this is how the world works sometimes. And children can be very cruel to each other. Even if it's pushing credibility a bit at times, I was able to believe in all of the characters' actions in the movie. This is how horror movies work best, the music and atmosphere created are top notch.
Maybe the plot could have been done a bit better, with more comprehensive explanations for things, and better mystery surrounding who was doing things. I can certainly see how the movie might have had more potential.
But for some reason, the movie really just lured me into it in a way that's hard to explain. Maybe it's just the mood I was in, but it really got my imagination flying and had me in a lot of suspense about what was going to happen next.
