Storyline

Angela Baker has undergone years of therapy, electro-shock and sexual reassignment surgeries, and finally landed herself a job in the last place she should be working - camp rolling hills. She has an old fashioned approach as to how camp should be, and an old familiar deadly way of making sure that those who don't follow her rules don't get to come back next summer.

Quotes

[first lines]
T.C.: But if anyone heard her, they didn't answer. Soon, she found herself in front of the old mausoleum. Michelle had no choice. She had to go inside and look for help. She opened the creaking door and crept slowly into the lobby. She called out. Again, there was only silence. Then suddenly, behind her, she heard a sound. She turned around and saw her boyfriend, Steve, with his belt wrapped around his neck, hanging from the back from the door! And he was drenched in blood.
Charlie: What happened...

Goodnight Campers
11 August 2004 | by ryannemetzSee all my reviews

Sleepaway Camp II totally took a turn for the better in respect to the original Sleepaway Camp movie. SC1, which was made several years earlier, has a different feeling to it. It was written and directed by Robert Hiltzik, who has no affiliation to either SC2 or SC3. I think that SC1 tries to come across as a more serious horror film. SC2 and SC3 both have some real good campy humor, which is an asset to these films.

With that said, this installment takes place at Camp Rolling Hills, which was formerly known as Camp Arowak. There, at Camp Arowak, was the location to which several grisly murders took place. Now, Angela returns in SC2 with a vengeance, as well as a sex change.

Soon enough she gets back to her old ways of murder. Only this time she is a camp counselor. Pamela (yes the Boss' sister) Springsteen stars as Angela Baker. Not to mention, Renee (Emilo's sister) Estevez co-stars as the protagonist.

This, along with SC3 are some of my all time favorite horror pictures. I just adore the crafty deaths and the humor that all make up for a great cult series. The soundtrack featuring Obsession is also all worth the while. I'm torn in two on whether I like SC2 better or SC3 better. However, if you haven't seen either, then start off with SC2.

I also recommend you check out Child's Play, Friday the 13th, Halloween, Night of the Demons, Silent Night Deadly Night, The Hills have Eyes, Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III 10/10
