After a horrible boating accident kills her family, shy, sullen Angela moves in with her eccentric Aunt Martha and protective cousin Ricky. One summer, Martha sends the kids to Camp Arawak. Soon after their arrival, bizarre, increasingly-violent accidents claim the lives of various campers. Who is the twisted individual behind these murders? The disclosure of the murderer's identity is one of the most shocking climaxes in the history of American cinema.Written by
Felissa Rose was only thirteen at the time, which is unusual for a feature film. Studios usually cast actors eighteen and over who look younger due to restrictions on using actors under eighteen for extended hour shoots. Also, at thirteen, she was too young to see her own movie in theaters. See more »

The DVD version released by the Canadian manufacturer Legacy Entertainment in 2003 is, to all intents, uncut. Robert Hiltzik's opening title sequence, dedicating the film to his mother, is the only thing removed from this version. Apparently, the transfer was sourced from the Media or Video Treasures VHS.

Great American Slasher with an ending you'll never forget
This is 80's American Cheese at it's greatest! The cast does a great job and the script is actually really good. If you're a fan of cheesy slasher flicks this is one you should certainly check out...and absolutely DO NOT MISS THE ENDING!!!! One of the creepiest endings I've ever seen in a movie which is sure to give anyone the chills. A truly wicked low budget horror flick.
