SLEEPAWAY CAMP (1983)
[Description from back of VHS] After a terrible boating accident killed her family, shy Angela Baker went to live with her eccentric Aunt Martha and her cousin Ricky. This summer, Martha decides to send them both to Camp Arawak. 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 camps past… or will an unspeakable horror end the summer season for all? (US, 1983, 84 min, Dir. Robert Hiltzik, 35mm)
SLEEPAWAY CAMP II: UNHAPPY CAMPERS (1988)
[Description from back of VHS] Welcome to Camp Rolling Hills. Meet your camp counselor, Angela (Pamela Springsteen). She’s the kind of counselor who enjoys camp songs, nature walks, board games and murder. In fact, she does wonders with a chain saw and drill press.
It all started six years ago at a nearby camp. Apparently, a shy 14-year-old boy went berserk and committed several grisly murders. Could it be that the unhappy camper has returned as counselor Angela?
The boys and girls at Camp Rolling Hills are about to find out. But, as each rowdy camper discovers Angela’s secret, they’re immediately sent home. In a bag. Until only one camper is left. It is the classic battle between camper and counselor.
Sleepaway Camp 2. Sign up and become a dismember. (US, 1988, 80 mins, Dir. Michael A. Simpson, 35mm)
SLEEPAWAY CAMP III: TEENAGE WASTELAND (1989)
[Description from back of VHS] Pamela Springsteen gives a slashing performance as Angela, a murderous camper who returns to Camp New Horizons where she previously had killed most of the campers.
The camp reopens under an inept new management team played by Michael J. Pollard and Sandra Dorsey. This is the ideal setting for Angela, who is dedicated to doing her job of eliminating “immoral” teenagers.
Armed with an arsenal of knives, guns, ropes, axes and even a lawnmower, Angela puts away everybody except Marcia (Tracy Griffith) and her boyfriend. In a no-holds-barred cat fight, Marcia repeatedly stabs Angela and sends her off in an ambulance, thinking she’ll never have to see her again… or will she? (US, 1989, 80 mins, Michael A. Simpson, 35mm)
