**** out of ****. Surprisingly original
4 December 1998 | by clay-8See all my reviews

I liked "Sleepaway camp" because the death scenes were original. There's also hardly any slasher flick out there where the woman is the killer. In the tradition of the "Friday the 13th" films, this one is right on top as one of the best slasher flicks in the genre. I even liked it more than "Scream" and "Scream 2". (I haven't seen this movie in a long, long time, but I do remember loving it)
