Trivia

When Angela imagines a speech made to the campers from the previous year, she misquotes Sally Field's second Oscar speech in which she actually said: "I can't deny the fact that you like me, right now, you like me!" Field herself was making a humorous reference to dialogue from her role in the film she won her first Oscar for, Norma Rae (1979), but many people missed the connection. She later even parodied herself when she delivered the line in a Charles Schwab commercial. See more »

**** out of ****. Surprisingly original
4 December 1998 | by See 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)
