Return to Sleepaway Camp Reviews
It was cool that the movie had some of the major original cast members but they can't even help this movie.
It was also pretty damn funny that Isaac Hayes played The Chef, that was actually what he was called.
Also nice to have the original writer/director back.
I knew the first time I saw this movie how it was going to end when I saw who ended up being the killer. It seems fairly predictable. It's also nice to see the "not so subtle" hints like "Manabe".
The kills are actually pretty decent. The tree part is the most memorable part of the movie, and that was the only real scene (outside of the ending) I had remembered from my prior viewing. It's still pretty funny.
Can I recommend this one? Eh, not really, but if you need more Sleepaway Camp in your life you can always check it out. It wasn't like it was insulting the legacy of what was already a cheap and dumb b-horror movie. By far the worst of the series though.
Literally the only redeeming value that this movie has is that some of the kills were pretty cool. The bed of spikes (how did she set that up without anyone noticing?) was awesome and perhaps the coolest moment, the cook's head in the hot oil was appropriately gruesome, and the birdcage with the rats thing was like something out of the "Saw" series. These moments are the only reason this is getting even 1 star, and it feels like the writer/director came up with them before the story and then threw together a plot in 5 minutes around it simply so they could film these kill scenes.
Not at all recommended for anyone. Stay FAR away from this one and let it fade mercifully into the obscurity it so richly deserves.
