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. Written by Dismal Angel

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...

Alternate Versions

The following scenes were cut from the film:
  • An alternate version of the Rob/Ally sex scene was shot with Ally clothed, just in case the MPAA wouldn't allow the Ally naked version. The unclothed version remained intact and is in the film.
  • Some dialogue in the Molly/Angela conversation outside the cabin.
  • The decapitation of Sean was cut to avoid an "X" rating. It appears in the outtakes on the DVD.
  • The original end titles track. It also appears in the outtakes on the DVD.

A Wickedly funny and brutal horror spoof!
29 February 2000 | by matts1979See all my reviews

Sleepaway Camp II is a great horror sequel, not only does it manage to equal the demented original, but in many areas, it actually improves upon the 1983 masterpiece.

Angela is back, this time at Camp Rolling Hills and posing as a camp counselor. She's pretty cheerful until some of the immoral teenagers start getting under her skin, then it's death by battery acid, power drill, knife and much, much more! The character of Angela Baker this time out is played by Pamela Springsteen (Bruce's sis) and she does a wonderful job. Some have criticized this film for making its maniac too likable, and that is a minor fault, but Pam is wickedly funny, often creepy, and always a great presence on screen.

Sleepaway II ties horror and comedy together very well, being in turn funny and creepy, it's much more of a subtle horror parody than the likes of Scream, and a lot more fun! For fans of the genre that have managed to miss this one, definately check it out, its got enough nudity, blood and overall fun for 10 summer camp slashers! As horror goes, it rates a solid 8 out of 10 on a serious scale!
