Summer vacation movies: ''Sleepaway Camp''
Summer vacation movies: ”Sleepaway Camp”
WHAT IT’S ABOUT Shy girl Angela (Felissa Rose) and her cousin Ricky (Jonathan Tiersten, pictured with Rose) go to Camp Arawak, where they face the requisite teasing and counselor indifference. But things get interesting when the gruesome killings begin…
WHY WE LOVE IT Sure, the plot is a blatant rip-off of the Friday the 13th films. But creative killings (death by curling iron!) and a shocking twist ending (the killer is who?!?) make it a summer-camp classic.
FUN FACT Sleepaway Camp has spawned three sequels; a fourth, Return to Sleepaway Camp (starring The Sopranos’ Vincent Pastore and Isaac Hayes) is in the can.
