Sleepaway Camp (1983)

Director: Robert Hiltzik

Star: Felissa Rose, Jonathan Tiersten, Karen Fields, Katherine Kamhi, Thomas E. van Dell

Angela's family is killed in a boating accident, so she goes to live with her aunt. Years later, she and her cousin, Ricky are sent to summer camp, Camp Arawak, but she is really shy and does not speak to people. At camp, all of the kids pick on her except for two of the counselors. Some of the people at camp are found dead or end up with freak accidents happening to them. There is a killer lose at the camp grounds.

This is one of the best bad horror movies to come out of the slasher genre. The movie is cheesy as hell with the death scenes to be a bit over the top, but you got to love these type of movies. You even have a dirty trashy pedophile in this one. Dealing with the subject matter, this movie was ahead of its time.

The mother in the movie is only in the beginning, but she is so funny. I don't know if they were meaning for the character to funny or creepy, but it was the best person in the movie. The rest of the cast and character were the same old 80's teen and horror movie bunch. You have these girls that think they are just the hottest trick on the planet, and you look at them today and they look like nothing at all. Girls with bad clothes and really bad hair, and some of that stuff is still kind of cool today. The guys are dressed in the tightest gay porn clothes that you could find. Guys wearing half shirts. Lots of young kids trying to get laid at any way possible.

Give this movie a watch if you have not yet. It is really a good bad movie. It is one that is great watch with a group of friends or all alone. Enjoy.
