  • Wow.

    Peter was not gay. He was confused about gender roles in relationships, which I think is quite obvious. That is why he has those flashbacks. The children on the bed, Peter pointing at his sister.. His father in bed with another man.. All to convey Peters confusion. It has nothing to do with sex or sexuality. It has to do with gender identity and the roles men and women play in relationships.

    sex with the boy at the end of the original, was just their way of revealing
    the truth. I mean, how else would you reveal something like that? In the
    sequels, it showed more affection towards girls than boys. Or maybe Angela is just experimenting....maybe its bisexual. I dont know, thats for the writers to figure out.
    "It"? That's a little offensive. And I'm not even a trans- person. Peter was not an IT. Peter was a little boy forcibly raised as a little girl. A boy in girls clothing, that's all. He's a boy. People tend to forget that "Angela" was Peter. "Angela" was always a boy. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Twist ending.. No previous thought? You obviously weren't paying attention to the first 86 minutes of the movie. But why would you, it being so horrible. Right?

    It wasn't ripping off Friday the 13th. It's a horror movie that takes place at a camp. End of similarities. You're about the 1000th person to use that tired excuse of why the movie is so bad. You hated it. Fine. But it didn't rip off F13. Try A Blade in the Dark, A Reflection of Fear, Deadly Blessing, Private Parts, and Unhinged. If one similarity is all that's needed for one movie to rip off another, then Sleepaway Camp could have ripped off any one or all of those flicks by that logic.

    And where did you get "split screen shot" from? There are no split screens in Sleepaway Camp.

    Sounds like you weren't paying attention at all, to anything.

    • "Sleepaway Camp"......A surprise 80's hit and one of the alltime cheesy/campy and fun slashers. Even though there is some bad makeup effects, there is also some awesome grisly murder effects and sequences. Real bad acting, a unique and terrific storyline, and a shocking ending that will forever be remembered also highlight the film. Few standout performers are Karen Fields who plays "Judy" and Katherine Kamhi who plays "Meg". They were the best out of the whole cast. The guys who play "Gene", the lifegaurd "Hal", and "Billy" are all sexy and hot and worth mentions just for that. LOL!! This classic slasher cheese is so bad....that its good!!

        Scream Factory brings Sleepaway Camp to DVD/Blu-ray in an all-new collector's edition hitting on May 27th. For the first time, get the lowdown on the bonus features that will be packaged with this presentation.

        About the film, in case you're new to this '80s slasher: After a terrible boating accident killed her family, shy Angela Baker (Felissa Rose) went to live with her eccentric Aunt Martha and her cousin Ricky. This summer, Martha decides to send them both to Camp Arawak, a place to enjoy the great outdoors. Shortly after their arrival, a series of bizarre and violent “accidents” begin to claim the lives of various campers. Has a dark secret returned from the camp’s past…or will an unspeakable horror end the Summer season for all?

          • I'm sorry but Pam Springsteen just makes parts 2 and 3




            Right, 'cause the world is just buzzing about this 4th entry to an already tired franchise. I can't seem to go anywhere without hearing about Jurassic World. It's the next Hunger Games.

            $30 - $40 million opening weekend if they're lucky, and then out of existence it will quickly go. Count on it.

                There's really just no female killer like her in those films. She's just so...perky.

                  I never made the connection that she is Bruce's younger sister up until recently.

                  She does make Sleepaway Camp 1&2, but the first one holds a special place in my heart. Super excited about this release!
