Courtney Bates, the younger sister of Valerie, and her friends go to their condo for a weekend getaway, but Courtney can't get rid of the haunting feeling that a supernatural rockabilly driller killer is coming to murder them all.
Angela is back, in the form of an angry inner-city camper on the hunt for blood. Camp New Horizons, on the recycled grounds of the former murders, intends to pair high class teens with underclass counterparts. Angela, however, has a different plan. Will it be door number one, number two, or number three?Written by
When Marcia sees the note about Angela, Cindy comes in without her sweatshirt on, but a moment later, she is wearing it. See more »
Hey, how old are you anyway?
Oh, you look older.
I know. When I was young my town's water supply didn't have any fluoride.

The R1 New DVD includes all of the gore originally cut to avoid an "X" rating, which includes:
A slightly longer death scene of Herman and Jan - Herman receives multiple stakings of the stick through his mouth instead of just one.
A much longer scene of Angela's attack on Peter and Snoboy - after killing Peter, Angela first tests out the log she uses on Snoboy then later empties out the whole can of gasoline on the tent, making sure not to get it on her night dress, then after lighting the tent up with the bodies inside and roasting a marshmallow she now comments "It wouldn't be camp without a marshmallow roast" before singing the Happy Camper song while the camera lingers on the burnt heap
After decapitating Arab, Angela kicks the head causing it to roll blood begins to pump out of the neck while the fingers continue to twitch.
The infamous complete death of Cindy - we see her body impact the ground head first. Angela inspects the bloody damage and a close up of Cindy's smashed head and brains everywhere!
When Lilly is lawnmowered we see blood chunks and dirt fly out the side.
When Bobby loses his arms, his arms literally get ripped and fly off, tumbling onto the road behind him! Blood shoots simultaneously out of both arm stumps.
A tent spike is hammered into Riff's hand when he tries to get out, he screams as blood jets out. The second tent spike hammered into him causes a massive spurt of blood against the underside of the tent.
A longer close up of Lilly's corpse - an insect crawls all over the neck stump!
Barney gets four gunshots instead of three, then after Angela tosses the gun down at his feet the camera slowly pans up his blood splattered dead body.
A longer shot of Greg and Anita dying after the axes hit them.
When Marcia and Angela fight, both receive gory damage - the knife impacts Marcia's leg in a close up, causing a spurt of blood before Angela retracts it. Marcia hits Angela in the armpit with the ax, making a torrent of blood. She then repeatedly stabs her in the stomach in a close up as heaps of blood shoots out.
Also an alternate ending will be shown. The full original ending. In the back of the ambulance we now see Angela slowly steal the hypodermic needle, building the suspense - when the cop gets the hypo in the eye, a burst of blood spurts out the side when it impacts. After Angela's final line when the film usually ends, Angela starts singing the 'Angela Rap' before her Rest In Peace.
Not as good as the past two movies, but still above average and worth watching. I think the problems mainly lied in the editing and pacing, which were both especially sloppy (except for the neat zipper-to-zipper transition). One of the reasons the editing was sloppy was because a good deal of frames had to be taken out to please the MPAA and receive the R-rating. Damn MPAA! Those slimy punks. But the character of Angela was a lot less upbeat, though still a big smart-aleck. It makes sense, being that she lost her job as camp counselor and has less power over the other campers and new counselors, but I still enjoyed the maniacally happy Angela better. Then again, it was a novel idea having her disguise as one of the campers to go back on her killing spree. The acting is pretty good, and that I believe is the biggest asset the third installment has over the others in the series. The death scenes are creative, the film reaches its quota of blood and naked breasts. Yet it didn't leave much of a lasting impact on me. I still liked it and recommend it to horror fans everywhere, but I feel it's the most forgettable of the series. Of course, the girl on the DVD cover with the cleavage popping out (who's probably not even a character in the movie and pretty much serves no purpose) will probably lure many men like me into renting or buying the film.
My score: 6 (out of 10)
