Sleepaway Camp IV (2012)

BOMB (out of 4)

After the success of SLEEPAWAY CAMP 2 and 3, plans for a fourth film were made and eventually filming began. Shortly after that the company behind the picture went bankrupt so the film production stopped. Years later Anchor Bay released a boxset of the three films and as an added bonus they included production footage and outtakes from the fourth film. Then, in 2008, the long awaited RETURN TO SLEEPAWAY CAMP was released but then word got out about a "new" film.

That "new" film turned out to be SLEEPAWAY CAMP IV: THE SURVIVOR, which in the end is nothing but a cheap way to milk money out of fans. This film runs 70 minutes and about ten minutes worth of that is footage from the unreleased part four. The other sixty minutes are scenes from the first three movies. To be more clear, all the death scenes and "highlights" from the first three movies are played here.

There are so many problems with this film but the biggest is the fact that there simply wasn't enough footage to make a fourth film. You get movies like SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT 2 where a little footage is shown and then footage from the original is thrown in to make it a feature. That doesn't happen here because there just wasn't enough original footage. Even worse is the fact that the footage from the first three films is of horrible quality and the editing is just awful. The "story" they try to tell with all the footage is just embarrassing.

There's really no point in watching this film when the first three movies are available in wonderful special editions and the fourth film's outtakes can be viewed in many places.
