Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers
The Story/The Film Itself: Before reading any further it is best that you see the original film first. After psychiatric treatment and a little nip/tuck (if you know what I mean) Angela returns to camp, but this time as a camp councilor. At Camp Rolling Hills, Angela encounters another group of naughty teens and dispatches them as only she can. This movie puts the camp in Sleepaway Camp being just as much a comedy as it is a horror movie. Pamela Springsteen (Bruce’s sister) splendidly plays a more confident, wisecracking, “Happy Camper Song” singing Angela, apparently more comfortable in her skin post operation. Although she has lost her shyness, she hasn’t lost her keen sense of killing. Her maniacal methods of murder include an outhouse drowning, battery acid to the face, a human barbecue, slit throats, chainsaws, and strangulation by guitar string, etcetera. That Angela sure is resourceful when it comes to using things around her to get a job done. The campers in this film are named after the Brat Pack. There’s the virginal Molly, her boyfriend Sean, the camp bitch/slut Ally, Rob, Demi, Lea, Mare (not Mary, she hates that name), Anthony, Judd, Charlie, Phoebe and the list goes on. An excellent movie from an essential horror series.
