Product Description

After a terrible boating accident killed her family, shy Angela Baker (Felissa Rose, Return To Sleepaway Camp) 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?


From its grisly makeup effects to the truly shocking, and unforgettable, climax, Sleepaway Camp is no ordinary slasher film…it’s a cult classic!

Review

This movie has one of the most loyal and diehard fan communities of any horror franchise in history…. Aside from a nice new 2k transfer from the original camera negative, which Shout is now famous for, as well as gorgeous new box art, the Blu-ray/DVD set features a 45 minute making-of and retrospective featuring a lot of the main cast and crew. Its entertaining and informative, as these things ought to be, and it seems like the atmosphere on set was just as weird as the movie is….. this Blu-ray set will give you plenty of bang for your buck --Kyle Anderson, NERDIST

[PLEASE NOTE: This 2007 review was posted to, and concerns, the Legacy Entertainment edition DVD as compared to the Anchor Bay edition DVD, both of which are out-of-print. Amazon often places all reviews under the same title, despite which release page the review was originally posted. This does not contain a detailed review of the Blu-ray/DVD edition of Sleepaway Camp, released on 27 May, 2014. Though I have yet to do a full frame-by-frame comparison of that newest release, it appears to include the complete, remastered edition of this film in widescreen.]

The Legacy Entertainment (VHS generation loss affected) 1.33:1 ratio edition DVD is otherwise uncut (if not widescreen), unlike the Starz/Anchor Bay (cleanly remastered) 1.85:1 ratio edition DVD of which most customers purchase.

This is classic low-budget horror with the most memorable ending of any such film in its genre, whether you care for it or not. Instead of elaborating on my opinion of the film, I thought some would be interested in knowing what makes the Legacy Entertainment edition DVD uncut.

In the Anchor Bay (abbreviated as AB) edition, five scenes are missing. Those scenes can be found in the Legacy Entertainment (abbreviated as LE) edition. The total cut is only 23 seconds, but they are interesting if not odd omissions. The cuts are as follows:

1. The 'skinny dipping' scene where the boys are shown running and jumping in to the water is cut by seven (7) seconds. The uncut LE version shows them naked from behind as they were running.

2. The first death scene of the boy found under the overturned boat is cut by six (6) seconds. The AB version of this scene has two (2) shots of the boy with the snake, while the LE version has four (4) shots of the boy.

Sleepaway Camp is first and foremost, another summer camp slasher film. A very popular slasher subgenre originated with the 1980 classic Friday the 13th. Angela and Ricky are young teenagers off to camp Arawak for the summer, Ricky the likable popular type, and Angela, the quiet and 'different' type. When all kinds of scuzzy camp regulars begin to give Angela a hard time, they start dying rather brutally...much to the dismay of the camp's burnt out owner Mel (Mike Kellin). Sleepaway Camp is a slasher film, however, it goes a bit deeper than that, what gives Sleepaway Camp its distinction, is the bizarre homosexual themes running throughout the film. Why they are there are anybody's guess,but from the strange transvestite (?) Aunt Martha, to Angela's gay father, the truly shocking and disturbing final shot and more, Sleepaway Camp is sick, grisily, twisted, yet always fascinating. Of course, its not always great, many scenes in this film are just laughable, like the melodramatic boating accident at the film's start, or the character that wears a shirt with her name on it, and even the scenes with Chef Artie, the local camp sleazeball. Sleepaway Camp however, always manages to be charming, despite its warped themes and lurid subject matter, this one certainly isn't for everybody, but those with a taste for something not quite the norm will find much to savor here with Sleepaway Camp, a truly strange film that stands in a tired subgenre, but stands out as a unique achievement-even if partially a fluke.

This is the fully uncut version of the film! The Anchor Bay dvd has a few slight cuts to some of the death scenes. The picture and sound on this version are that of an old vhs but still watchable. If you have the box set get this one too just so you can see what has been cut from the Anchor Bay version. You cant beat a dvd for $5!

Who knew that there was a good 80's slasher film that I somehow over looked. I really do miss that genre of movies, and I was ecstatic to see in all the pile of mixed baggage there was one that came out on top. Even though this had a lot of the same qualities as all of the other slasher films ( Friday The 13th in particular) Sleepaway Camp still brings you enough originality and twists to make it an instant classic.

After surviving a horrific accident 8 years prior Angela is forced to live with her crazy Aunt Martha and cousin Ricki. Ricki and Angela are persuaded by Angelas aunt to go on a vacation at camp Arawak. Angela is a very quiet girl that makes all of the other teenagers at the camp uncomfortable, which in return makes her the object of everyones taunting. Ricki tries to stick up for his cousin, but it seems he is always too late to do anything helpful. After a few people end up dying the individuals at Camp Arawak are all suspects and victims at the same time.

Never did the film become dull nor was it over the top exciting edge of your seat thrills. The film is not overly gory, but does not take away from the greatness. There is some descent acting, and if you are familiar with slasher movies you will understand the rareness of good acting in that genre. I know there are a lot of other reviewers that have raved about the very twisted ending, I agree with all of them. I will admit that the finale is one of the very top finales in a horror movie ever. It had me sleeping with my lights on that evening, and like I stated in a another review, I am a very hard person to scare. The last image of this cinematic adventure will be forever implanted in my brain. If you go into this film blind you will be nothing less of blown away, just by the ending alone.
