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.

Brainless Stupidity
23 October 2016 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Angela (Pamela Springsteen) kills a seventeen year-old teenager and travels to the Camp New Horizons assuming her identity. Lilly (Sandra Dorsey) and her husband Herman (Michael J. Pollard) are receiving six teenagers from the outskirts and another six from wealthy families for interaction in the camp. Lilly, Herman and Sheriff Barney (Cliff Brand) split the group of teenagers in three and they go to different places in the beginning of Angela's massacre.

"Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland" is a lame slasher with no story and only a brainless stupidity with senseless killing. The direction is awful; the performances are terrible; and the edition is amateurish. My vote is two.

Title (Brazil) "Acampamento Sinistro 3" ("Sinister Camp 3")
