One of the greatest Camp Killers of them all, SLEEPAWAY CAMP will always be remembered more than anything else for its jaw-dropping finale! Young Angela is adopted by her bizarre aunt after her father and brother are killed in an unfortunate boating accident. Years later, she heads off to summer camp with her cousin Ricky, where she is picked on by the other kids for being different. One by one, the dead bodies of her teen tormentors start turning up all around camp, but cute little Angela can't be the killer... Can she? Unlike so many other Slashers, this cast is actually filled with teen actors and not 30yr old stand-ins for a nice change of pace. While there is surprisingly little blood, SLEEPAWAY CAMP has no shortage of grisly murders, including a violent drowning, a boiled cook, death by bee stings, countless stabbings, and a curling iron up the c... skirt? The starry-eyed Angela is sweet and unassuming, as compared to her foul-mouthed cousin who is always looking out for her when he's not getting into trouble. This sets up two potential killers who each have their own reasons for revenge. SLEEPAWAY CAMP offers a lighter twist on the Slasher genre with plenty of mean-spirited fun and brutal kills!
