Critic Reviews for Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland
Sleepaway Camp III is a fantastic follow-up to the previous sequel, and even if all the jokes don't necessarily stick the landing in the end, Pamela Springsteen is once again a superstar in this underappreciated sequel.
Time for the tentpoles to come down (even if there are another two sequels).
The direct-to-video sequel to a direct-to-video sequel; ah, the '80s!
i think her heart just isn't inn it anymore
Audience Reviews for Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland
So the Sleepaway Camp series continues with the third installment: Teenage Wasteland. Angela's back in camp under an assumed identity to mutilate more terrible teenagers. I love that this series has "camp" in the title because that's exactly what it is. Angela is just as bad as Freddy making bad puns after each kill. I haven't really cared for the series so far, but this is marginally more enjoyable than the rest. It's still campy as hell with weak death scenes but probably funnier than the first two.
The worst of the series, this camp movie is entirely routine and lame. It's not worth seeing, just watch the first two.
The third instalment in the "Sleepaway Camp" series is terrific fun, featuring another strong performance by Pamela Springsteen. It's a great shame that Springsteen decided to follow a career in photography as I would have welcomed further movies from this actress. "Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland" is comic horror; the bloodshed is played for laughs but there are some effective scenes. While I'm a fan of the "Friday the 13th" films, I actually find the straight-to-video thrills of Angela more entertaining. The always-fantastic Michael J. Pollard is suitably seedy as the counsellor with a penchant for young girls. This is an entertaining straight-to-video horror flick that moves at a good pace and features strong performances from all involved. With some snappy one-liners, a dark sense of humour and some amusing scenes, this is a recommended genre film.
