11/12/2011: Sleepaway Camp [1983]

So with some free time tonight I returned to the 80's with a movie from the complete opposite end of the spectrum. Sleepaway camp.

Riding in on the slasher craze of the 80's sleepaway camp, well to put it simply, was probably written by a mental patient. However with terrible acting and sketchy plot, Robert Hiltzik's directing still creates quite the atmosphere. Also it may be one of the few movies I've seen where the teenage characters actually were played by actors their age.

The entire reason this movie has achieved it's cult status is that it has the biggest shocking twist of an ending. This is an image that definitely sticks in your mind. [spoiler]

Also Aunt Martha packed a WHOLE BAG of chips.
