Angela, honey? I love you but you need to cover yourself because you’re scaring the children! Hey folks, I told you I’d be back. But you might not like what I have to say. Basically if you’re reading this and havent seen “Sleepaway Camp”, I would check it out before reading any more, I’d hate to ruin any surprises for you.

Watch the entire film here.

Ok, now that I have that out of the way I can continue. This movie fucked my world up as a kid, I was thrown into a brand new world of transgenders, homosexuality, pedophiles, and boiling pots of water larger than my body. We are presented in the beginning with an accident where either a brother or a sister and their dad are killed by a boat that runs over them…hehehe. I mean, What a horrible tragedy, but shut that little girl up, for real. Then, its  eight years later and we find out this fuck off weirdo aunt is now taking care of “Angela”  and her cousin Ricky. She is shipping them off to summer camp where she meets a 1980 Tony Danza and he says “ANGELA” a lot and they fall madly in love. Ok, Maybe that doesn’t happen, but if you know what I’m talking about, you are probably laughing right now. The 80s were amazing, lets just stick with that…worst clothes and hair, EVER! So the crazy eyed aunt sends the kids off the Camp Arawak where the campers are DYING to have fun…ha, get it. DYING? Yea I’m an idiot. The deaths are pretty engaging; boiling flesh, arrows through the neck, killer bees, hot curling irons(ha! Fucked Up!), canoes, and decapitation. The camp is in an uproar and the body count is rising by the minute. Poor, innocent Angela is constantly getting fucked with, Ricky defends her, the old man  and Tony Danza think its Ricky, but no one knows shit. The crotch shorts are getting smaller and we find out Angela’s parents are a gay couple and she might have had sex with her sibling. Then, the penis. Best ending to an 80s slasher, ever. Angela and her boytoy are alone on the beach getting naked and ready to bump uglies, then two councilors walk up on Angela, she’s sitting down and humming…then she stands up to reveal her junk, it’s a weird looking bushy nub too. Her fucked up aunt raised Angela as a girl because she already had a boy and “that simply will not do”. Anyone who has seen this film has that image in their head pop up when you mention the title, I guarantee it. Totally underrated and lost among the rubbish that was being pumped out at the time because of the success of “Halloween” and “Friday the 13th”, i would honestly rather see that pop culture than American Idol or these damn remakes and contrived genre reimaginings. So hopefully I provoked some not so fond memories or introduced you to a long lost gem of a slasher film. I am on my 2nd week of  my back surgery bedrest and am so excited for this in two weeks, Blood On The Beach. There will be an Angela and Ricky reunion there that I am really looking forward to, among the many other celebrities that will be there. So if you live near Virginia Beach, I would definitely check it out if you can, I want this convention to come back every year, it’s our first and I don’t want to be the last. IT WILL BE A PARTY! But anyway, leave me your feedback, let me know what thoughts are in your head about Angela’s androgynous excursions. As always, Thanks for stopping by and reading.

  1. This is definitely one of my favorite movies of all time 🙂

  2. I’ve heard of this film but now I’m inspired to watch it. I watched Silent Night, Deadly Night for the first time for my Christmas blogging fest and laughed heartily so I think I might like this. Thanks for the hilarious review!

    Am I allowed ssy this?I don’t like horror-it scares me…(but I do like the humour part)!But when I was in college I used to go and stay with friends for the weekends and they force fed me horror movies(I don’t mean I had to eat them, I mean they made me watch them.. 😉 .). Now I don’t remember Angelas willie and I am sure I would have, but I do remember a chick who ate her mexican gardener with her nipples in the bath tub. I often lie wake nights and wonder what that movie was or if I just made it up in my head. Any idea…?

      wow, i dont recall that one, I’ve seen a movie where a girl devours men with her vagina in a movie called “teeth”, i also recall a lady that had eyeballs for nipples, that was called “gothic”, other than that nothing else rings a bell, but ill put my feelers out there because im intrigued now, and if you find out, lemme know, ill review it, thanks for reading 🙂

        Shit, maybe it was in my head!I remember she looked normal and then transmogrified into this THING with mad snappy gargoyle heads for nipples!..the Gothic thing rings a vague bell…must have a look…:)

    I remember this movie. It haunted me for years. What a freak show. I was way too young to have watched it. That’s the 80’s for you. I think I saw the Exorcist and The Elephant Man too young as well. Both terrified me.
