Sleepaway Camp

1983 / d. Robert Hiltzik

A slow paced and deceivingly normal film, this is the flick that kickstarted the second most popular camp-slasher series. Despite some creative kill scenes (including death by bee stings, and a repulsive moment involving a heated hair curler) it’s not enough to save you from glancing down at your watch on more than one occassion. That is, until the goddam plot-twist ending hits so hard, it actually salvages the entire movie. A ballsy movie, for sure.

Co-editor of The Blood Theatre, Matthew T. is also an artist who plays a mean piano and enjoys preparing for the zombie apocalypse.
