25 years ago this little film was released and soon after became a major cult classic. The premise was simple; kids go to Camp Arawak, treat each other badly, pick on one kid, Angela, in particular and soon after start being killed in the most creative ways possible. In the end, few are left standing and it turns out that Angela isn’t a prissy little girl after all! The chick has a PENIS! The rest is stuff that slasher flick legends are made of!
Fast forward 25 years and Ronnie (Paul DeAngelo) who was a counselor at Camp Arawak in the original Sleepaway Camp now co-owns Camp Manabe with his partner Frank (Vinnie “Big Pussy” Pastore). Guess what happens? Yes, kids treat each other badly, pick on one kid in particular, Alan, and soon after start being killed in the most creative ways possible!
If you were among the millions of fans that had fun watching the first Sleepaway Camp you will have just as much fun reliving those memories by watching the sequel. We gave fans exactly what they asked for……..”kids acting like kids”, “cheesy overacting”, “whacky special FX”, and yes “gruesome killings”. We also have the great Isaac Hayes playing “The Chef” in Return To Sleepaway Camp, one of his last performances.
Return To Sleepaway Camp is the most fun you can have being scared! A fast 88 minute ride of oddball HORROR fun that AINT IT COOL NEWS called……
“The most remarkable slasher movie I’ve seen in a long time!”
This film was a labor of love . Produced by one of the film’s original stars Tom van Dell. Directed by the original Director Robert Hiltzik and requested by the fans.
Support independent movie makers who put their hearts, soul and money into projects like this by heading out to a DVD retailer near you on November 4th (Target, Best Buy, FYE) and buy a copy, it will be on sale! Give that one away to a friend or family member and stop by a Blockbuster in your hood or Red Box kiosk and RENT one copy. That is the one you watch with a big cheesy plate of nachos and salsa!
