|the thousand yard stare...|
Eight years passed, Angela has grown up to her early teens and is living with her Aunt Martha and her cousin Ricky. Stricken mute and awfully shy, Angela is sent to Camp Arawak to enjoy a holiday with her cousin but only to face unpleasant characters including an obnoxious owner, a chef with a pedophilic fetish, and Ricky’s snobbish ex-girlfriend from the previous summer. Because of her awkward behavior, Angela is instantly picked on as a freak by both her peers and some of the counselors, only finding comfort from Ricky and his friend Paul.

|I see a hot iron curler in your future, bitches...|
|Doomsayers always bites it good.|
The movie boasts some great murders; a foul drowning with an equally unsettling aftermath, death by bee stings, a back evisceration, and one very nasty iron curler shoved down a broad's lady hole. Make those victims deserving of their fate and you have a sick yet fun ride, but add a few innocents campers in them, then you got yourself a shocker! Considerably, this is perhaps the one backwoods slasher to have more campers being killed instead of the counselors, adding a bit of notoriety to this B-Flick's reputation as these kid victims are getting younger by the minute.
Half in half, Sleepaway Camp can still be considered to be a cheese fest that deserves its popularity. It's a shock and shlock that goes side by side, and perhaps one of the better early 80s releases made before the sub-genre went downhill half a decade later...
