Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland
The Story/The Film Itself: Angela the “Angel Of Death” is back. After killing a girl, Angela assumes her identity and takes her place at Camp New Horizons where kids from both the wrong and right side of the track are brought together. After being divided into three groups, they each set out for “an experiment in sharing.” Unfortunately for Angela, but fortunately for us, things never change and the teens are a bunch of wiseass, foul mouthed, horny, pot smoking, self centered, good for nothing punks. As she kills her way through each of the groups she comes to what could be her final showdown. Filmed back to back with part two, Sleepaway Camp 3 is also a blend of horror and comedy. Pamela Springsteen returns as Angela, playing the character like only she can. Her co-stars include Michael J. Pollard (American Gothic), Tracy Griffith (Melanie’s little sister) and Jill Terashita (Night of the Demons). The camp owners are named Herman and Lily after The Munsters. The privileged teens are named after The Brady Bunch kids (Marcia, Jan, Cindy, Greg, Peter and Bobby). The troubled teens are named after West Side Story characters (Maria, Tony, Anita, Riff, Arab and Snowboy). Some of Angela’s inventive kills are a firecracker in the nose, a lawnmower, head smashing after falling from the top of a flagpole, some axe murders, and (Angela always one for nature) a stick. Another top notch entry in a kickass series.
