One of the best slasher films ever! The 1983 movie about a young girl named Angela who is sent away to camp with her cousin. Ever since her arrival, Angela doesnt fit in, very shy and knowing no one but her cousin, she keeps to herself and says not a word to her bunk mates. Of course, as in every camp known to humankind, there are people who just want to fuck with her for being different; little d... read more

Sleepaway Camp is one of the first summer camp slasher movies that was brought out in the 80's. A summer camp is the setting of the movie and all is well until someone starts killing the campers one by one. The movie has the same feel and acting as you would expect from an 80's slasher flick but it was still an entertaining movie. You will probably be able to guess who the killer is well before th... read more

“This film's reputation as a cult classic has withstood, if only thanks to it's incredibly brief twist-ending. Now, that's not to say that "Sleepaway Camp" is a completely terrible film, but it's far from being a good one. There's no argument that it's not enjoyable as the nonsensical cheese-fest that it is, however many withhold that this is not just a camp-classic, but a great horror film. But save for those final few minutes, there isn't one thing the least bit memorable about the entire endeavor. Rest assured, if not for that infamous scene, this flick would only be remembered by the most committed of retro horror fanatics.

Many of the best films in the 80's slasher boom overcame their lack of originality with creative kills, genuine suspense and creepy atmosphere. "Sleepaway ” read more

“Deftly directed and laden with cartoonish characters performed with a seemingly intentional stilted weirdness, "Sleepaway Camp" is surprisingly distinguishable from its more blood-soaked contemporaries. Outlandishly comical due to the laughably contrasting era-specific acting styles within cliched yet incongruously heightened and dramatic juvenile situations delivered by the mostly adolescent cast whose hilariously campy dialogue is interspersed with varying methods of killing executed with decent practical effects, from knife, bee and curling tong attacks to drowning and scalding.

Despite its cult status, "Sleepaway Camp" is not meant to be taken seriously as a classic of the horror genre; a curio with a loose plot hinged on convolution and misdirection, the story takes a backs” read more

TDcore's Horror Journal 2018: Pt. 4 (50 movies items)

" This is not a particularly well made picture, with acting that ranges from decent to hilarious and stodgy direction, but as a slasher and a cult artifact, it's absolutely enjoyable. With just the right amount of weird, inappropriate and gross to satisfy slasher fiends and lovers of cult cinema. The kills themselves are not explicitly depicted, but are fairly original and grimy. There's also enough oddball characters and goofy dialogue to keep things interesting between blood spurts. I can't sa"

"Finally decided to check this out. I've seen the ending so many times before actually watching this so the ending twist didn't really work, it still pretty creepy scene though. The practical effects were great in the kills. The acting was awful and hilarious at times."

"12.11, PC Sleepaway Campin asema genrensä helmenä joissain piireissä perustuu suurilta osin kai loppuratkaisuun, joka kieltämättä tulee puskista. Elokuvan kökköisyys ja lievästi häiritsevä fiilis, jota hahmoista ja näiden käytöksestä huokuu (ja jotka tuntuvat jotenkin vierailta, kun tapahtumapaikkana kuitenkin on kesäleiri), luovat mielenkiintoisen yhdistelmän ja toimivat yllättävän hyvin yhteen."
