Storyline

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 SleepawayCampMovies.com

Wow... Unexpected and disappointed...
28 December 2008 | by (Long Island, NY) – See all my reviews

One word to explain what I watched last night... Amazing!

However, don't take that as a positive amazing. I have been following this title since I first heard about it filming in the 2003 time frame, and what I saw last night was so underwhelming. I was a fanatic going to Best Buy each week waiting for them to get this in stock (the store by me just got it in yesterday) and I picked it up last night.

About 15-20 minutes in, I figured out exactly what was going to happen and to whom and then actually fell asleep a number of times. (I flipped back the chapters that I missed, however it was a waste of time.)

I am a massive fan of the first one and continually watch it, even to this day. I do watch the "Simpson" 2nd and 3rd, which I feel were better movies (production wise) than this thing. Come on, the cuts between the scenes are timed so wrong, it looks like an amateur cut this movie. Also, some of these scenes look better than others as far as quality goes.

Yes, there are homage scenes to the original, which are appreciated, however some are underdeveloped... And what's going on with the killer's black garb? We saw that in Scream already... Been there, done that...

I'm disappointed at Robert and the gang for giving us this. I would have footed some cash up into the budget and became one of the Exec. Producers on this if I knew this was going to turn out this bad. (I had the option at one point when they were looking for financing.)

I know Felissa personally (we grew up in neighboring towns on Long Island), and though she kept telling me to wait for this, I listened and waited... However, after which I feel that it's just a big waste of time.

Sorry gang, however if you are looking at a decent follow-up, skip this.
