But where those movies failed is where Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland succeeds. Many people miss the point of the Sleepaway Camp sequels. I often hear was that supposed to be scary? It was more funny than scary. Yes people that were the point of the sequels! The makers of the Sleepaway Camp sequels were making more of a parody of the slasher genre. While movies like Scream get praised for that the Sleepaway Camp sequels are ignored.
Slasher flicks often have what one can say a morality tale; even if that wasn't the intention of the filmmakers it seems like you have sex you die, take drugs you die, stuck up you die. If you're obnoxious you die. The only person to normally survive these movies is the innocent virginal girl. And that is what the Sleepaway Camp sequels play up to. Both Sleepaway Camp sequels are really a lot smarter than people give them credit for.
I thought the first Sleepaway Camp was alright, the main reason for the cult status is due to the ending. If not for that I doubt the original would be as remembered as it is. But I just love Sleepaway Camp II and III. Both are just so much fun.Read more ›
Comedic, graphic, and downright loveable, Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland, has everything we horror fanatics need. This movie just works so well, due to Pamela Springstein's fantastic and smooth portrayal of Angela Baker, The Angel of Death. In part III, Angela has joined the ranks and gone back to her roots as a fellow camper. And she will have none of these rude, disrespectful, fornicating teenagers camping along side her.
Oh no!! One screw up and your dog meat!
Whether it's a lawnmower or axe to the head, a .45, or just some old fashion "stringing up the flagpole", the Angel of Death always finds creative use for her talents of disposal.
Director Michael A. Simpson and writer Fritz Gordon, wrote and directed Sleepaway Camp parts II and III back to back. Literally, as soon as production stopped on Unhappy Campers, filming for Teenage Wasteland began. This film initially received an X rating, and several gore sequences had to be trimmed down to get an R rating for distributors. However, the DVD does not disappoint!
For almost every murder in the movie, there are the deleted gore sequences in the special features portion that show the killings as originally intended. Awesome!!
The entire Sleepaway Camp series is a gem of a cult classic. Highly recommended! Best to watch in sequence!
"Sleep away Camp III" has it all, hot girls, a friendly yet sadistic murderer, and lots of blood! "Sleepaway Camp III" finds Angela Baker (Pamela Springsteen) back in the woods. This time Angela reinvents herself as a misfit from the inner city so she can blend in with the other campers.
Lilly (Sandra Dorsey) and Herman Miranda (Michael J. Pollard) have turned the former campgrounds (of "Sleepaway Camp II") into "Camp New Horizons." Lilly is a lazy old bag that doesn't want to move, she's just in it for the money and publicity. And Herman is a horny old dude that enjoys playing hide the weasel with one of the female campers. Suffice it to say, Angela isn't very happy about all of this...
Angela is actually a very sweet girl (on the surface). She enjoys camping and working with others, and really enjoys sports games and the outdoors. She just gets really ticked off when people do stupid things. So what does Angela do? She simply kills them in a very inventive way. For example, Lilly got her head mowed over with a lawn mower.
Comcast recently added "Sleepaway Camp III" to their new "FEARnet" section of on-demand movies so I got to watch it again and got a good laugh at all of the kooky antics of the campers. My favorite camper (besides Angela, of course) is Snowboy (Kyle Holman) because he's such a fool; just imagine what Angela does when she gets her hands on him...
In a way, Angela is like the "Borat" of the 80's because she exposed a lot of stupidity and narrow-mindedness among teens. As Angela said, "just taking care of business..."
