Sleepaway Camp 3: Teenage Wasteland

by on Jul.23, 2010, under Daily Review

This is more of the same. Angela (Pamela Springsteen) is back, this time intercepting a place on a youth development project which takes people from different ends of the social spectrum and engages a weekend of camping to develop life skills. So we get rich kids and tramps, drug addicts etc, all packed off for a weekend of woodland frolicking. It’s not long before Angela starts on the body count again, people she doesn’t like, naughty people, disobedient people, anyone really that so much as looks sideways at her.

The film is ok. It’s not great, not as good as the last and has far less gore, although some good inventive moments and a pretty good script. The story introduces more character to the role of Angela, trying to expose an insight to the tortured mind of the killer with all the ups n downs, highs n lows. This doesn’t really work and just brings the light hearted film down a notch or two, actually taking away some of the films light. What disappoints me though, is we are getting further and further away from the initial movie. The emotion and physical trauma which caused these events in the first place have kinda been forgotten as Angela has now become a pale imitation of her self.

Part 4 tomorrow.
