31 Days of Horror 2: Sleepaway Camp

October 6, 2009: Sleepaway Camp
We head to camp today to remember a classic slasher from the ‘80’s – Sleepaway Camp.
The movie is set at Camp Arawak, a place that lets teenagers explore nature and other things. Yet, these campers start to die off one by one in what is considered horrible accidents. They soon discover that someone is turning their summer into a real hell.
Has something from the camp’s past returned? You’re going to have to watch the movie to find out.
Sleepway Camp is a rip-off of Friday the 13th, there I said it but we all know it. That doesn’t make it any less of a movie; in fact it’s one of the better slashers from the ‘80’s.
The film has very high level of camp, which I love in these types of movies, and it also has one of the creepiest endings in this sub-genre of horror.
If you’re looking for a movie with gore, humor and one killer twist than look no further. Sleepaway Camp is a classic and it might be a rip-off of Friday the 13th but who hasn’t borrowed?
