Trivia

Jerry Silva was so pleased with the way Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers was turning out that it was announced during filming that this film would be made after they wrapped. The script for this film was written during the filming of the previous one and they only had one weekend for pre-production. See more »

Goofs

When Maria is walking down the street and the camera is following her, the dolly pusher is reflected in a shop window. See more »

Quotes

Herman: Where'd you learn to chop wood like that?
Angela: I've never chopped wood before. But I've chopped other things.

Alternate Versions

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.

Just keeps getting worse although I did enjoy Angelas rap tape
20 March 2009 | by acidburn-10See all my reviews

Angela returns again to another stupid and pointless sequel, she returns yet again to the camp where she murdered everyone only this time under a new name Maria and a new look, but then her murderous instinct's kick in and she starts killing again.

Pamela Springsteen returns once again in this silly and stupid sequel as Angela Baker (originally played by Felissa Rose). Well, Sleepaway Camp 3 is basically Sleepaway Camp 2 all over again but with less campers and a more good-looking Pamela Springsteen and once again the comedy seems to be more in focus than the horror. Don't you just hate when that happens to originally good horror flicks? Angela's one-liners are stupid and never deliver so much as a giggle.

The acting is just as bad as the acting in the second movie and it almost feels as if they shot this directly after wrapping up production on the second movie since it's even the same director.

Sleepaway Camp III is a dull and stupid slasher that I don't get why slasher fans like it, the killings this time round are quite dull, but the one Angela placing a rap tape in the tape player of her next victim was enjoyable and quite funny.

All in all awful slasher that only gets a 3 because of the inventive rap sceme murder
