Today we'll take a look at two great, cheesy slasher movies from the late 80's. In 1983, the first Sleepaway Camp was released. A fairly standard Friday the 13th knockoff for the most part, it gained notoriety for the reveal of the killer who turns out to be Angela, a shy, bullied camper who is actually a boy harboring a wee bit of a psychotic streak.
With that gonzo twist, we come to the shot back to back sequels that focused more on humor than horror.
Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers (1988)
This one is cheesy late 80's fun that goes by pretty quickly.
Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland (1989)
The second film is worth tracking down for fans of cheesy slasher movies and horror comedies in general. Pamela Springsteen is quite likable in a twisted way (and strangely sympathetic as well as both films try to make her more of a tragic villain than anything else) and the special effects are good for a low budget movie. You can skip the third one though, it's just not as much fun.
