Synopsis


Sleepaway Camp
A deadly boating accident derails the life of a sensitive youngster, leading to confusion, madness and murder. Years after the incident, Angela (Felissa Rose) is still withdrawn and rarely speaks, living a sheltered life with her aunt and cousin Ricky (Jonathan Tiersten). The two young teens are sent off to Camp Arawak to spend the summer, and though Ricky attends every year and has plenty of friends, Angela is unable to fit in and finds herself the target of cruel taunts from her bunkmates. Her cousin is always ready to stick up for her, and she begins a timid romance with Ricky's best friend Paul (Christopher Collet), but it isn't enough to stop the abuse from their fellow campers. Soon a series of fatal accidents is plaguing Camp Arawak; a pedophilic cook is scalded alive, a practical joker drowns mysteriously and the boys' restroom becomes the scene of a horrific bee swarm attack. The campers are fleeing in droves, and the few who remain begin suspecting foul play. But who is the killer? The camp's owner (Mike Kellin) believes that the killings are only meant to ruin his business, and he's convinced that the hot-tempered Ricky is to blame. When the evening of the camp social arrives, it proves to be the bloodiest night of all, and a terrible secret is revealed in a bizarre confrontation on the beach. This offbeat slasher mystery (also known as Nightmare Vacation) has earned a sizable cult following for its twisted sensibilities and inspired a pair of direct-to-video sequels. ~ Fred Beldin, Rovi

    I'd never seen this movie be4,but I had a good feeling about this movie.I bought it,@ first it was a little boring,then it got good.Most of the people in the movie are good actors.What's really shocking & freaky is the ending.I was reading other reviews about this movie,one review said that this movie wasn't even allowed to be seen in some states.So,if your interested in seeing this movie,I say go for it.It will shock you.I would not recommend watching part 2 & 3,they're boring.

    I had to check this out after hearing about such a twist ending. Sure enough, the ending is great. But, everything leading up to it was excellent as well. Plus, this blu-Ray has cool special features

    This is a crazy movie with a very twisted ending. Scream Factory did a great job on the transfer as well.
