Also included is a "Sleepaway Camp Diary" that gives the history of all three films and includes addresses for cool Sleepaway Camp fan websites.
All three of the features are presented in widescreen with audio commentaries, still galleries, theatrical trailers, outtakes, behind the scenes, deleted scenes and MUCH, MUCH GORE!!!
You won't believe the odd cast list in these fun movies! The first installment has a group of total unknowns with Felissa Rose as the shy, teenaged Angela. In the second and third installments Pam Springsteen (Bruce "The Boss" Springsteen's little sis) takes over the challenging, over the top role of Angela. Also in the cast are Tracy Griffith (Melanie Griffith's sister)who plays "Marcia", Renee Estevez (sister of Emilio Estevez & Charlie Sheen)as "Molly" and even an Academy Award Nominee in Michael J. Pollard (Bonnie & Clyde, 1967)as a lusty "Herman"!!!
The names of the characters are references to the pop culture for the times, with names purposefully taken from "The Brady Bunch", "The Munsters" and "West Side Story".
The real star in these three pics, however, is the special effects! Great stuff, even compared to present day F/X. The soundtrack to Sleepaway Camp II, "Unhappy Campers" has the likes of Anvil, Obsession, and even the Dead Milkmen!Read more ›
Three fun and entertaining horror flicks for any horror and slasher fanatic! the first movie is a disturbing and shocking slasher pic that was considered a "Friday The 13th" and "Halloween" rip-0ff became a box-office sleeper in november of 1983 because of it's shocking scenes of violence like a memorable scene where a pedophile chef gets boiled by hot water literally and the movie packed one hell of an ending that haunts people to this day. The sequels on the other hand are meant to be dark comedies with a little bit of satire like the second one for example makes fun of other horror movies of that time like "Scream" did in the 90's and the third one was weak but good especially for that sexy Asian babe with some good death sequences with Pamela Springstein in both 2 and 3.
This DVD boxset contains all three movies all nicely transfered with good picture and nice sound even though the first movie isn't completely uncut, but you can find that in a cheap 4 buck DVD to see the uncut version of the original.Read more ›
Here are what is NOT present in this version.
1. Several frames of Meg's corpse have been removed.
2. Judy flipping the bird back to Ricky during the game of Capture the Flag.
3. A lot of frames of the watersnake slithering out of Kenny's mouth are missing.
4. A shot of the boys skinny dipping is also missing and is overdubbed with a weird howl.
This disk has a commentary by director Robert Hiltzik, moderator Jeff Hayes (of sleepawaycampmovies.com), and actress Felissa Rose. This disk also features the theatrical trailer.
2. Sleepaway Camp 2: Unhappy Campers - A spoofy, self-aware parody of 80's slasher films has our favourite transsexual psychopath Angela (a few woman now,) working as a camp counselor at Camp Rolling Hills and "sending campers home for bad behavior."
This disk features the trailer, a small teaser trailer for Sleepaway Camp 3, a making of featurette, and a commentary by director Michael A. Simpson, moderator John Klyza (of sleepawaycampfilms.com), and writer Fritz Gordon.
3. Sleepaway Camp 3: Teenage Wasteland - Features Angela making mincemeat of more immoral campers.
This one is a real treat. You get a making of featurette, the trailer, the deleted scenes with the original uncut deaths, and a commentary by director Michael A. Simpson, moderator John Klyza (of sleepawaycampfilms.com), and writer Fritz Gordon.
