Movie Info

Angela (Pamela Springsteen), the murderous camp counselor of Sleepaway Camp 2, returns to the scene of her crimes in this no-frills installment. Assuming a camper's identity (after mowing her down with a Mack truck), Angela arrives at Camp Rolling Hills, which was purchased and renamed "New Horizons" after her last killing spree. Husband and wife entreprenurs Herman and Lily (Michael J. Pollard and Sandra Dorsey) have reopened it as an "experiment in sharing" to bring street-smart disadvantaged kids together with snobby rich brats. Splitting up into three groups of culturally mixed teens, they go off into the woods for a camping trip designed to break down barriers. Instead, Angela finds a myriad of reasons to off her fellow campers (thanks to their constant bad behavior), and gets the job done with axes, tent spikes, a lawnmower, and firecrackers up the nose. Even the presence of an off-duty police officer (Cliff Brand), who is familar with Angela's crimes, doesn't deter her from slaughtering everyone for the merest provocation.

    Disappointing as it didn't live up to the standard of the previous films, still some cool deaths scenes but weren't great. Formulaic and cliche, it only served as an ending point for the original trilogy

    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 worst out of the 3.I found Camp owner Herman to be EXTREMELY annoying & I wanted to kill him myself
