Sleepaway Camp Movie Review

Quiet teen Angela (Felissa Rose) goes to a summer camp where the mean kids and counselors are being killed off one by one. This 1983 low budget horror film is pretty typical of the movies from that era: camp setting, mean kids, nice kids, slasher killing people off camera, bad dialogue, bad acting. The two best performances are turned in by Karen Fields as the bully Judy and Desiree Gould as the super-weird Aunt Martha (a bit of a tip-off to the twist ending).

You've said too much!

Interestingly, Gould has only appeared in two other films and Fields has not done any other movies. This is a pretty forgettable film but it is VERY well known for one thing--the aforementioned twist ending is one of the most talked about endings in horror history. This alone almost makes it worth sitting through (though I was already aware of the ending before I saw the film). Otherwise, this is a fairly run of the mill slasher flick.
