An insult to anyone in the audience who has two brain cells to rub together.

Far more subversively comical than the 1983 original, Sleepaway Camp II admirably mixes things up in a way that not only manages to still be faithful to the spirit of the first film, but also takes some wild leaps in tone and approach.

A silly, and ridiculous slasher, but a hell of a lot of fun.

If you have ever wanted to see bratpack adolescents get their bloody comeuppance, then this teen-trashing sequel might just put a smile on your acne-pocked face.

If your main reason for seeing a movie is a big quantity of corpses, then Unhappy Campers is right up your alley.

Audience Reviews for Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers

Not as good as the first one, and it changes actresses for the lead role, but I liked it anyway. It's a good horror movie for the late 80s, not great but fun and enjoyable for 80s fans in particular.

As much as I like terrible horror movies, this one just didn't work for me. I'm not quite sure why.

Sleepaway Camp II has even more silliness than the first film. Stripping away the more "serious" overtones of the first, Unhappy Campers takes on a whole new approach to this tongue in cheek series. The film is simply a riot from start to finish, and Pamela Springsteen (sister of singer Bruce Springsteen) is awesome as Angela. The death scenes are hilarious, not to mention super silly. Unhappy Campers is a fun film to watch with friends over beers. A very original, and fun take on the series, Unhappy Campers is a prime example of a terrific Horror comedy that actually works. Fans of the first Sleepaway Camp are going to enjoy this film just as much due to it's over the top humour and silliness.

Sleepaway Camp 2: Unhappy Campers is one of my all time favourite horror films it has just the right amount of jokes and blood in it to satisfy almost anyone. I can see where some might be turned of by it's ultra cheap look, but hey thats what makes it so good. Michael Simpson does more with the budget on this movie than Michael Bay could ever do with 100 million dollars on his crap fests. This movie moves at an ultra fast paced that makes it 79 minute run time seem like only thirty and leaves you wanting more and they gave us more a year later. I'll save my love for Sleepaway Camp 3: Teenage Wasteland for my comment on it. But with two, Pamala Springsteen does more with the role than Felsia Rose could ever hope to do. Rose just sat around and drew us to her as the killer. The only thing shocking about the killer in the original was what extra part she had. I never for one moment thought Rose was not the killer on Sleepaway Camp one. No matter though with the exposition out of the way Pamala Springsteen (Yes she's Bruce's sister) gave us through her performance one of the best female slashers of all time. And yes I know technically she's not a girl, but she was raised as one and thus has the feelings of one, though not the sexual ones. The supporting cast in this one is great too and I love all there appearances. Renee Estavez stands out the most and I wished she had followed in her fathers, and brothers foot steps she could have done other great work. The fact that all the characters are named after brat pack members is funny too, but not as funny as the Happy Camper song, I freaking love that song. Everyone should watch this movie as it is a classic. If the fact the first one is sort of cruddy has deterred you, get over it and watch this masterpiece of cinema. Also Bring back Springsteen not Rose
